In 2018 Steve Perry released the album “Traces”, his first after a number of years away from the microphone.

On December 4, Perry will release an acoustic version of some of the songs. Perry has chosen eight of the 15 tracks on the album for “Traces: Alternate Versions and Sketches”.

Speaking on the album Perry said, “I’m really pleased with the sonics and I’m really pleased with the simplicity of the song and the lyric and the chords, which is basically what it’s stripped down to.”

Perry has been keeping busy during the pandemic and lock down by writing music and recording in his home studio. But before he releases any of the new music, Perry will close out Perry said, “the acoustic Traces is going to close the Traces chapter. Then I’m opening up another chapter next year at some point.”
