Former Journey lead singer Steve Perry will release a new solo album titled “Traces” on October 5 via Fantasy Records. Perry teased his return by launching what appears to be an official web site and social media accounts. The initial posting on the sites contained a simple message: “I know it’s been a long time comin’.” It has been reported that Perry will appear on the October 7 edition of “CBS Sunday Morning”, presumably to promote his new solo effort. Last year, Perry said that his next solo album was inspired by a personal tragedy. Perry last released a solo album in 1994, “For The Love Of Strange Medicine”, which was certified gold in the U.S. Perry’s final full concert with Journey took place in early 1987. He later rejoined his bandmates in 1991 to honor late concert promoter Bill Graham and also appeared with Journey when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2005.
