Steve Perry's first album in almost a quarter of a decade is here. Traces is available Friday (Oct. 5) via Fantasy Records and is perhaps his most vulnerable record yet.

The legendary rocker's long-awaited return to music features previously released tracks “No More Cryin’,” “No Erasin’,” and “We’re Still Here,” as well as a heavenly cover of The Beatles’ “I Need You."

“My new life [...] is going to be about recording anything that comes to my heart because I’ve rediscovered the passion for music and it’s something I don’t want to let go of ever again," he told NPR's All Things Considered.
