If the deals are not done by now, I don't see how anything gets out before the new year. Promotional materials, production, etc. are all time consuming and to come in at this late date would be very difficult. Remember, in addition to having to win back/over fans, any new album would be competing with others set for release during this time slot. My guess is that if there is anything new, the work has already been done or we won't see it until after the new year.

These days having any "name recognition" at all is a pre-requisite to getting a deal with a major. It costs a fortune to break an unknown artist... who would likely have a very small fanbase compared to Perry.

Perry is also selling an album... not singles to Millenials, who barely know who he is.. to try and do that would be stupid.

Perry's demo is Female Boomers. It is WAY less risky and would cost orders of magnitude less money to re-introduce Perry to this built-in demographic, than it would to try an sell singles to Millenials, who will likely buy follow on singles after they hear the songs from their Boomer parents...

This album has to be GREAT, and I have no doubt that it is, because Perry wouldn't even TALK about putting it out that if the feedback while he was recording/mixing wasn't positive.

Because of that... no label is gonna pass up that kind of easy and less expensive revenue.

My bet is that there's a bidding war going on..




Major labels are not targeting Female Boomers for anything ( or male)
A great demand from a very small fan base will not create a bidding war.

and that sad thing there is no radio station in my area that plays "new music" other than indie bands and bro country.
About 10 years ago we lost the only station that played Perry's When you in Love...
I wonder if I stand alone would have done better if the movie wasn't a colossal flop.

If Quest for Camelot was more successful and released through a bigger movie company, I Stand Alone could've/would've/should've been a contender for an academy award. IMO, it's on par with anything that you would have seen from Celine Dion or anyone else who would regularly represent in that category.

Armageddon was a huge hit and the Diane Warren/Aerosmith song was as well. Remember Me by Journey was a far better song, IMO, but got no airplay. Not sure who decides what gets released as singles from soundtracks, but they missed the boat on that one.

It seems like years since Steve announced that he has a beautiful album inspired by his deceased love Kellie to release!
When I come to MR to look in and see the same dilemma of fans who patiently wait to buy a crumb of Steve's work for literally years....its bizarre!!
If an Artist is wanting to let peeps know that he/she is releasing new work, then there should be some element of regard to those peeps! Because disregard of continual promises to them is unkind!
I'm first in line to defend SP and his word and work!
However, although he does not owe the communication to his fans ....it would seem that to cause them to perpetually wait without an update in darkness is manipulative!
Neal Schon is communicating to SP fans to quell their minds, as I'm sure he awaits as well!
Mr Steve Perfectionist is driving his fans to frustration ...and doubt!
Although, he is worth the wait in every sense of the precious reward of the wait.....
Still, the "thankful" fans are certainly deserving of maybe just an update from SP about his previous press release of his very long awaited upcoming Album!
Imo!!

RPM,
Hahaha, yes it could be a field day for the "loon discrimation"! lol! Not my intention!
However,
We've had the Steve waiting and the loons baiting . .
for 20 some odd years lol!
And now we have the Steve baiting and the loons waiting ..lol!
Since 25 more years isn't an option for the Steve or the loons . .
My guess is, the Steve has a beautiful Kellie tribute in store for the loons!!
Hey RPM, me and the 'loons: are pulling up a chair next to you . . cause the Steve is worth waiting for!

Amen to that. Couldn't have said it better.

That's why I told a few posts ago that he didn't give a f*ck about his fans: because that's what he's been saying for the last 3 DECADES.

:? :? :?
I am confused...I thought he was STILL in Journey 30 years ago. He first left in February 1987. He started an album in January of 1988 but Sony shelved it. He appears in 1991 with Neal and Jon for 2 songs at an impromptu memorial service. Then he starts another album, finishes it and tours with it in 1994/1995. He rejoins Journey in 1996 leaves for the final time in May 5, 1998. Since then, he has been musically active all the way until 2016, when he appeared with State to State doing background vocals. He doesn't get into the studio until Spring of 2015 and finishes the album late 2016. Then talks about it in 2017 and lawyer says they are in heavy negotiations in July of 2017. Soooo....when has he been saying that he is going to give us AN album and hasn't fulfilled it? 2 years is NOT 30 years!!!!!!!! How are you folks doing your math??? Let's see 2017-2015=2 years. Ok. I know I can count.

Wow. We live in a selfish, me-first society. I agree that he DOES owe it to the fans that wait with baited breath for 2 long, horrific years for Steve to come out of "hiding" some kind of response as to the delay, but God, people. Really?!?!? :( What in the world is this all about?

This kind of BACKLASH is EXACTLY why he is not on social media and is quiet about the album he has finished already. Trust me...he KNOWS about ALL of the BACKLASH and is quiet for a reason. Life happens to every...single...one of us and he is not immune.

I know I get frustrated and feel like laying out on the floor in a panic that I will never in this lifetime see or hear him sing another note! And that might be true but that is not what this post is about, no more selfishness, no more complaints because it’s about him giving to us those songs as a gift and a gift is a gift whenever you have it in your hands. I know I get carried away and everyone ignores my post but that’s alright because even with the frustration and eye rolling and deep endless sighs I do continue to have faith in him. It might never happen but you can never say he doesn’t know how to keep us all in suspense even if it isn’t intentional. And truly there is nothing wrong with and it doesn’t cost a thing to keep the faith even if doesn’t ever come to fruition because I think he has at least one more album in him if not two. I just hope he still believes he does too.

I have read that he wants a single album contract, with no touring to promote it. If this is true, then he seems to be having a hard time finding a label willing to take him up on it.

Though i can't understand why Deen can get his new album, with Revolution Saints, put out in less than a year..... with no plans for a tour yet....and SP can't get someone to sign him up. Must be something else going on. BTW, if you haven't heard Deen's new album, you really should....his voice is amazing.

If your a label does that sound like an offer you would jump at?
Nearly 70 year old Rock singer who won’t tour, who most under
The main demographic of download purchasers have never heard of...
I doubt it’s a bidding war....just put it up on StevePerry.com and call it a day.

Just thought I'd log in and see if there is any sign of a CD from Mr Perry after all the speculation during his appearance at the RnRHOF ceremony.

No?
Thought not.

Bye.
See you again next year. :D
