Three weeks after officially announcing his first new album and single in over two decades, Steve Perry has offered up a new preview to excited fans.

“No More Cryin’” is the second song to be previewed off of Traces, which is due out October 5.  Its touching lyrics echo Perry’s relationship with Kellie Nash, his late girlfriend who passed away from breast cancer in December 2012 who he credited in a previous statement with giving him “a life I never knew I had.”

Traces is currently available for pre-order in multiple formats and bundles at
