Hot on the heels of JOURNEY's induction to The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and an emotional reunion/reconciliation with his guitar-playin' pal, Neal Schon, STEVE PERRY has let it be known that his eagerly anticipated, oft-delayed solo album will finally be released, most probably later this year. The singer has been working on the album for the past year, and Perry describes the subject matter of the album as "emotional" and "cathartic."  Steve Perry's previous solo album, "For the Love of Strange Medicine," was released in 1994, and he last performed with Journey in concert for the 1986 "Raised On Radio" Tour. The only other time he performed with Journey after that tour was to record the 1994 Journey album, "Trial By Fire," and since then, he has kept a very low profile, rarely performing or appearing in public. The theme of the new (untitled) album is a universal subject: the expression of emotions related to the death of a loved one. As revealed in a  recent interview w/ ABC Radio, Steve Perry said, "I met someone and I fell in love with this person. 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.”  He went on to say, “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.” Rock On!
