Legendary Musician Re-Imagines Select Tracks from 2018’s Acclaimed Album, Traces
Watch “I Need You” (Acoustic) Visualizer HERE
Today, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Steve Perry released TRACES (Alternate Versions & Sketches), a companion to 2018’s acclaimed album TRACES. For the new collection, Perry revisits several of his favorite tracks off TRACES, stripping away the grand production touches and taking the songs down to their essence. Presented acoustic and raw, (including some in sketch form) tracks like “Sun Shines Gray,” “No Erasin’,” “No More Cryin’,” and “Most Of All” take on a new and richer meaning. In this setting, Perry’s iconic soulful voice glides out-front vibrant, clear and warm while the lyrics take on greater significance as well, even more intimate than before.
Leading up to release, Perry shared the previously unreleased performance video for “Most Of All” (Radio Mix) along with visualizer videos for “Most Of All” (Acoustic), “No Erasin’” (Acoustic) and this week, “I Need You.”
“When writing these songs, the original inspiration is always my first compass – where the songs should go,” stated Perry. “Alternate Versions & Sketches is exactly that, and I’m very excited to have you hear the original seeds of these songs.”
Produced by Steve Perry and his longtime collaborator and friend, Thom Flowers, TRACES (Alternate Versions & Sketches) offers a fascinating glimpse into the creative process and a deeper understanding into an already treasured album.
