You can watch the new song by ex Journey vocalist Steve Perry “No Erasin'” right here. Steve may have aged but his vocals are still strong and is a delight to hear him once again belt terrific notes.
He has always been great on the ears and this release is no different.
Perry once spoke in regards to the release of this album and pulls the inspiration of it by the the death of his girlfriend in 2013. “I met someone and I fell in love with this person,” he said. “And I lost this person to breast cancer four years ago. In the midst of that, I had written some songs, and before I met her I had sketched some. And so about a year ago, I started recording.”
“Basically the record is an emotional expression, and a reason to make one,” Perry added. “It’s been a real cathartic experience going back to that emotional place that I thought I would never go back to. And we really have been doing our very best to capture what I think are some timeless songs.”
“Years ago, I disappeared. There were many reasons, but mainly my love for music had suddenly left me. I knew that simply stopping, was what I had to do if music was ever to return to my heart. Then and only then I would figure out what to do. If not… so be it For I had already lived the dream of dreams. Many years passed. One day, I began sketching some musical ideas with the creative freedom that I was the only one who would ever hear them. One song led to many. My love of music had returned. Then another beautiful thing happened. I found love.
My precious Kellie gave me a life I never knew I had. I lost her December of 2012. I now deeply understand the meaning of ‘It’s better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.’ May of 2015, I began recording. These are special to me. I respectfully ask that you listen to them and whatever they make you feel. Thank you for listening.”
