Deluxe Version of TRACES Available Now FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 22nd, 2019 – Today, Steve Perry shares his first official music video in nearly 25 years for “We’re Still Here,” a track from his latest album, TRACES. A series of live performance videos were released previously in support of TRACES however the new clip for “We’re Still Here” represents Perry’s first official video as a solo artist since “Missing You” in 1994 and his first official video overall since Journey’s “When You Love A Woman” in 1996.
The neo-noir inspired clip, directed by Myriam Santos (Common, Andra Day, Tommy Lee) captures Perry driving a shiny, black ’70 Chevelle SS through the same Hollywood streets that moved him to co-write this reflective, affecting ballad with Canadian producer/songwriter Brian West. Perry shared the story behind “We’re Still Here,”: “Brian and I had just started writing the song and were sketching it out in the studio. When we broke for dinner I went to this place down the street, and that was the first time I’d been in Hollywood in a long time. There I was on Sunset Blvd. and Hollywood and Vine just walking around. I saw a whole new generation of 16 and 17-year old’s running around just…alive. And through these kids I felt a kinship. We’re still here doing the same thing.” Last week, the deluxe edition of TRACES became widely available for the first time in a variety of formats which include the album’s full, expanded track list of 15-songs (the standard album plus 5 bonus tracks from the TRACES sessions.) Fans can purchase the album digitally, on CD and in two 180-gram 2 LP vinyl versions, one that features a collectible, limited-edition 3D lenticular cover. TRACES was originally released to wide international acclaim last fall. In addition, brand-new, special edition merchandise is now available exclusively on Perry’s online store.
