Perry: I think what I'm looking for and hoping for is the emotional life-sustaining interaction that music can provide not just for people, but I hope for me.

If it didn't, very simply, then I had already done everything I ever could dream of doing the way it needed to be done in a time that you could possibly even do it in.
So that was about it and I was committed to just living out my life with whatever came my way. As he said, "Years ago, I disappeared." There were health issues that prompted his retirement, but as former Journey frontman Steve Perry explained in an Instagram post on August 14 of this year, "Mainly my love for music had suddenly left me." Continuing the movie motif, Perry fell in love with the woman of his dreams, rediscovered his love for music and then she passed away in December of 2012 from breast cancer.Keeping a promise to her to not "return to isolation," Perry is back with , his first new album in almost a quarter of a century.I'm into all sorts of other creative things like that that became some sort of new passions for me, especially film mixing and film editing. Honestly I'm very proud of the emotions that are on the record. Perry: That's true, you're more willing to be who you are and what you are in spite of anything your mind might tell you. Baltin: But you also went through so much real life stuff, heartbreak and tragedy, that makes you realize music is secondary.That kind of came in handy when it came to making my own record because I was able to put my passion into editing into my own project. I don't really have a preconceived idea or target writing or targeting any sort of crystal ball of the consciousness that exists with fans. I'm just a singer/songwriter who didn't have passion for music, who rediscovered it. Perry: For me, it switched from perfection to emotional expression. It's about emotional expression and being okay putting even more of that vulnerability and emotional expression out there.Perry said when we spoke recently, "This is a different Steve." Older, wiser, having gone through so much, Perry puts the focus on emotions on this collection.
