Former-Journey frontman Steve Perry will release his first Christmas collection, titled, The Season, on November 5th. The album, co-produced by Perry and engineer Thom Flowers, features eight newly recorded holiday classics — including such jazz-based standards as “Winter Wonderland,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” and “Silver Bells.”

Steve Perry spoke about the new album, explaining, “All the songs on this record were my favorites growing up. I used to hear them on the Philco radio that my grandmother always had on in the kitchen when she was cooking the most amazing holiday food, and because of that they hold a very emotional place in my heart. I wanted to make sure to record them all in a simple way that honors how I first heard and fell in love with them as a child.”

The tracklisting to Steve Perry’s upcoming ‘The Season’ album is

“The Christmas Song”
“I’ll Be Home For Christmas”
“Auld Lang Syne”
“Winter Wonderland”
“What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve”
“Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”
“Silver Bells”
“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”
