Steve Perry debuts Traces album return in US Top 10

Steve Perry’s long-awaited solo album return, “Traces”, has debuted in the US Top 10.

According to Billboard, the former Journey singer enters the Billboard 200 at No. 6 with opening week sales of 73,000 units, including 72,000 in traditional album sales.

Perry’s third record earns the rocker his first solo US top 10 album on the chart, following a No. 12 hit with 1984’s “Street Talk” and a No. 15 peak with 1994’s “For The Love Of Strange Medicine.”

While Perry was with Journey, the band notched six top 10s, from 1980’s “Departure” through 1996’s “Trial By Fire.”

The singer recorded “Traces” at his home studio – with only strings done at Capitol Records – alongside co-producer Thom Flowers.

Featuring nine original tracks alongside a cover of The Beatles“I Need You”, “Traces” was introduced with the lead single, “No Erasin’”.
