Steve Perry (opens in new tab) has shared a video for his Traces (opens in new tab) track We’re Still Here.

While the former Journey vocalist released a trio of studio videos last year, the Myriam Santos-directed video for We’re Still Here is Perry’s first official promo as a solo artist since Missing You in 1994 – and his first overall since Journey's When You Love A Woman in 1996.

The video sees Perry driving a black 70s Chevelle SS through the streets of Hollywood – the location that inspired him to write the track with Canadian producer and songwriter Brian West.

Perry says: “Brian and I had just started writing the song and were sketching it out in the studio. When we broke for dinner I went to this place down the street – and that was the first time I'd been in Hollywood in a long time. 

“There I was on Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood and Vine just walking around. I saw a whole new generation of 16 and 17-year olds running around just... alive. And through these kids I felt a kinship. We're still here doing the same thing.”

Earlier this month, Perry released a deluxe edition of Traces which features all 10 tracks from the original record, plus five bonus songs from the studio sessions.
