Steve Perry has announced the release of his first holiday record, The Season, coming November 5, 2021, via Fantasy Records. The Sept. 10 announcement was accompanied by the release of Perry’s rendition of the holiday staple “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.” Listen to it below.

Of the album, the former Journey lead vocalist notes, “I hope when people hear this record, they’re teleported in the same way I was when I recorded all these songs—I hope it brings them back to those golden moments with their loved ones and gives them that feeling of joy and connection and comfort that we all need so much.”

Perry talks about the lead track. “When I was recording vocals for ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas,’ as I was singing ‘Please have snow and mistletoe and presents under the tree’… I was emotionally thrown into standing in my grandmother’s house staring through the door that I always hung mistletoe and then I saw her beautiful Christmas tree in front of her living room window…I had to stop singing because it felt like I was really there ……. I was a bit stunned. Back home for Christmas is where everyone wants to be!”
