Former Journey frontman is dropping his first record in more than 20 years.
Perry, 68, told ABC News Radio the album is an “emotional expression,” fueled by grief over the death of a woman he loved.
“I met someone and I (fell) in love with this person,” he told ABC Friday night, shortly after he and his Journey bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “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.”
The album, his first since 1994’s For the Love of Strange Medicine, will be released later this year. A decade earlier, Perry’s hit “Oh Sherrie” launched his career as a solo artist.
