It's safe to say that Steve Perry has gotten more press in the last month -- after announcing his new album, Traces -- than he did in the 25 years that he was out of the limelight.
Steve Perry on the amount of press he has received since he announced he is releasing a new album, Traces:
“I’m pleasantly surprised that people are responding the way they are. I really had no preconceived ideas of any response at all. If I was gonna do such a thing, I don’t think I could’ve finished the record, you know. High or low I just needed to finish the record and give it a kiss and let it go.”
Perry will release Traces, his third studio album and first since 1994's For the Love of Strange Medicine, on October 5th.
