“I met someone, and I fell in love with this person,” Perry explained. “And I lost this person to breast cancer four years ago. In the midst of that, I had written some songs, and before I met her I had sketched some. And so about a year ago, I started recording.”

Perry recently joined former Journey band members on stage during their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony. Despite speculation, Perry would perform alongside them, current Journey frontman Arnel Pineda sang instead.
