So the lead track we're really excited to share with the audience, and it's called "No Erasin'," so just tell me about this song in particular.

"No Erasin'" is a song about two people who go to a class reunion and they see each other for the first time after years, and they both have separate lives with people at home, but they remember what they used to have when they were in high school, and high school is always an amazing place in your heart. And they kind of go outside to get away from the environment and talk a little bit, and they go sit in her car, and they go for a ride, and they get in the back seat of her car and they talk about old times, maybe a little smooch here and there. Nothing bad. But it's just a reflection of what they used to have and how important that is.

I imagine you're performing this song for an audience, there have to thoughts of some old times with the fans.

That's funny you say that, because it really is exactly a double meaning, because at some level the relationship I'm talking about is the relationship with the audience too. I know "it's been a long time coming since I saw your face", because it has been. And "no running anymore / my soul's burning just like it did before" — there's a lot of metaphors of that nature about performing and being in front of people again, which will lock up to the lyrics when that happens.

Thank you for sharing all of these clips. Exciting times!
The album cover reminds me of Elton John's Captain Fantastic album art. Lots of hidden messages in there.

Thanks so much for putting these links all in one place tater.... :D

I have to go back later tonight and check them out after the kid is in bed, so it's helpful to have one place to look.

Having a 3 year old running around interrupts my fandom. :lol:

New Music & Video From Steve Perry of Journey!

It took almost 15 years for Steve Perry to find his passion and his love for music once again. He went back into the studio and has a brand new album coming out called Traces with the first single f “No Erasin” already playing on KOIT. Now you can hear the new song and watch the brand new music video for it.

Then after that check out the interview that I did with him on our podcast. We talk about why he was gone so long and what made him decide to get back into the music industry after all this time.

Love it where he's get some shots in about the Giants win, then

Great to hear some history on the LP's cover.

I hope he eventually explains the imagery on the cover. It is SO DEEP and complex and everything there has a meaning. Most people are only looking at the front cover and not the whole image. I hope a high res image of the entire album shows up so you can really see all the detail.

Everytime you look at it, you see something new.
Had to laugh, when he was explaining about him
and Kellie smooching on the bridge.
Sounds like little by little, he will explain it all
but man there's a lot there.

No doubt - I've picked up on some of it - I'm sure with your history with him, you see even more. Every time I go back to it, I see another little detail. Funny about the dog - there were two things that really stuck out as "what the heck is that?" - one was the dog, the other is the woman on her back to the right (apparently doing "bicycles" - lol)

Here's as high of a res of the whole artwork as I've found - for your decoding pleasure...:

Yeah - I heard that in the interview - I was just saying that the dog and the lady we're the two things that threw me the most. The mystic symbolism seems to be a continuation of the TBF images. The stadium way in the background. What looks like possibly the guys from Journey very tiny. The tails, of course. The Portuguese flag... just tons.

I know he said or think he said his high school from Hanford is in there, or maybe it was the theater :?:

Thanks, Ted. This is great. I don't feel it's my place to reveal too much, but the stadium on the right by the water is AT&T Park where Steve has enjoyed many baseball games. The Hanford Theatre is there and Fantasy Studios is on the far right. The tiny guys in the distance are not Journey.
