Steve Perry hasn't been a member of Journey since 1998, but he still has a say in the music they recorded together.
His latest involvement concerns a remix of 1983's "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" for the soundtrack of the Netflix series, Stranger Things, which was released digitally on Friday.
"I was stunned at how cool it was," says Perry. "I found out that Bryce Miller and Troy MacCubbin had created it and told them how much I loved it. One week later, I had an idea for an extended version, so I called Bryce and we assembled our Extended Remix.
"Being a huge fan of the show, having my music on the soundtrack made me very happy! I truly love both these remixed versions as much as I do the original recording from the Journey Frontiers record."
This is Perry's first involvement with Journey music since Live in Houston 1981: The Escape Tour in 2005.
The Stranger Things soundtrack also features songs from The Beach Boys, KISS, Talking Heads, Kate Bush, Extreme, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong, Rick Derringer, James Taylor, Metallica and many others.
The CD and cassette versions of the soundtrack will be released on September 9th, followed by vinyl on November 4th.
