'Tis 'The Season': Ex-Journey singer Steve Perry releasing new holiday album in November

In 2018, former Journey frontman Steve Perry returned to music with Traces, his first new solo album in 24 years.  Now he's set to release his first-ever collection of holiday tunes.

The Season, which is due out on November 5, features Perry's renditions of eight classic yuletide tunes, including "Winter Wonderland," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "Auld Lang Syne," "Silver Bells" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

"I hope when people hear this record, they're teleported in the same way I was when I recorded all these songs," says Steve. "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."

In conjunction with the album announcement, Perry has debuted one of the songs as a digital single, a jazzy, stripped-down rendition of "I'll be Home for Christmas."

"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," Perry notes. "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!"

The Season, which you can pre-order now, is available in multiple formats, including CD, digital, streaming and vinyl. Various limited-edition colored-vinyl versions of the album can be purchased at Perry's official online store, Target and Barnes & Noble.

Here's the full track list of The Season:

"I'll Be Home for Christmas"
"Auld Lang Syne"
