Steve Perry released the first music video in 25 years. “We’re Still Here” is part of his latest album “Traces”.
A series of live performance videos were released in support of the Traces release. However, this video is his first official as a solo artist since “Missing You” in 1994. And the first since “When You Love A Woman”, alongside Journey in 1996.
The neo-noir-inspired clip is directed by Myriam Santos and features Perry driving a 1970s Black Chevelle SS, he also walks through Hollywood streets.
Perry told the story behind the video. “During the recording of the song, we went to a place in Hollywood. It was the first time I’d been there in a long time. At Sunset Blvd, I saw several young people of 16, 17, walking around just … existing. And I felt a sympathy for them. We’re still here doing the same thing.”
