Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Deluxe edition including bonus tracks. Traces is the third solo studio album by singer and songwriter Steve Perry. It was released on October 5, 2018, through Fantasy Records. Traces was his first solo album in 24 years, following 1994’s For the Love of Strange Medicine. Perry says, “Putting 30 years into 10 songs has certainly been an emotional experience for me. I started writing and recording these songs with the creative freedom that I was the only one who would ever hear them. Along the way, I rediscovered my love for music. Each track represents traces of my past, but is also a hopeful look into the future. I invite you to listen with an open heart.” Produced by Perry alongside co-producer Thom Flowers, Traces is the artist’s most vulnerable and honest recording to date, balancing tremendous loss with enduring hope and beauty. The album is a collection of nine original tracks that encompass the spectrum of human emotion, and also features a beautifully reimagined cover of The Beatles’ “I Need You.” It is the work of an artist who has reconnected with his music in a new way.
