One of the most iconic voices in rock & roll history, Steve Perry has captivated generations with the sheer power of his range and extraordinary warmth of his tone. As the latest turn in a phenomenal career that’s included landing on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers of All Time list, fronting Journey during the band’s most massively successful era, and gaining entry into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the legendary singer/songwriter now returns with The Season (Deluxe Edition): an updated digital edition of his 2021 album of traditional Christmas songs on October 28th.
The Season (Deluxe Edition) contains two brand-new recordings, including his first-ever Holiday original called “Maybe This Year”, co-written with Dallas Kruse. It also includes a soulful new cover of the Donny Hathaway classic “This Christmas”.
Commenting on the Deluxe Edition, Perry explained, “I wanted to write an original Christmas song of my own, so Dallas Kruse and I began writing what became, “Maybe This Year.” I wrote the lyrical sentiment about how the holidays can bring such joy and sadness and how for me, both these emotions give me connection to feelings of gratitude for so many years gone by, and a desire to hold on to these holiday feelings we share throughout the coming year. Along with “Maybe this Year” I have also added one of my favorite Donny Hathaway songs, “This Christmas”. I dedicate both these tracks to my friend, Lamont Dozier.”
