Steve Perry shares ‘Winter Wonderland’

Track is from forthcoming first-ever holiday album

Iconic singer-songwriter Steve Perry has shared “Winter Wonderland,” from his forthcoming holiday album The Season, out on CD and LP on November 5th via Fantasy Records. The track is the second song to be unveiled from the inspired and joyous new record, and marks the first-ever Christmas album from the beloved rock legend.

Perry’s interpretation of “Winter Wonderland” captures the song’s timelessness, while simultaneously putting his own personal spin on the track. Perry’s signature vocals are on full display, set against a smooth and steady tempo and warm harmonies.

“’Winter Wonderland’ is one of my favorite tracks on The Season,” Perry shares. “I have always felt a close love for Motown’s music and how it shaped my early school years. This track is a homage to that.”

The Season features exuberant, new interpretations of holiday classics that hold significant meaning for Perry, along with millions across the globe. All eight tracks on the record come straight from the heart, transporting listeners to a familiar place of comfort and familiarity associated with loved ones and meaningful traditions shared during the holidays.

It’s fitting that Perry also works tirelessly on charitable efforts close to his heart as the holiday season approaches. In September he partnered with the San Francisco Giants/The Giants Community Fund on a specialty car auction. The online auction, organized by the Fund’s car donation partner, CARS, featured Perry’s beloved 1979 Mercedes 450SL, along with a custom-made touring tuxedo tails jacket worn by Perry during past concert performances and an autographed copy of The Season. The classic silver convertible was driven to many Journey writing, recording, and rehearsal sessions. Proceeds from the auction support the Junior Giants program, which provides a free, noncompetitive baseball and softball program for nearly 24,000 kids, ages 5-18 years old, in more than 85 leagues in underserved communities.
