Go Behind the Scenes With Steve Perry in New Video (Video)
Steve Perry is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his new video for the song, “We’re Still Here.”
The song–from his 2018 record Traces–was directed by photographer Myriam Santos.
“[H]er emotional visions of what the song should look like completely fit the music,” Steve said. “Not only is she a great photographer, she’s a really great director.”
A trip to get something to eat in Hollywood was the inspiration for the plot of the video, which is set in California with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer behind the wheel of a Chevy Chevelle.
“I decided to stand on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, and watch and listen to a whole new generation, running around the streets, blasting their music in their cars as they’re driving around,” the former Journey singer said. “They took me back to a time I’d forgotten about.”
“I guess…what I was trying to say when I was writing this song was, ‘We’re still here doing the same thing we’ve always done.” he continued. “We work together, we laugh together, we cry together.'”
