A Very Perry Christmas: Ex-Journey singer Steve Perry releases cover of the holiday classic "Silver Bells"
Written by Classic Rock 93.9 on November 1, 2019
It may be only the first day of November, but Steve Perry is already embracing the holiday season with open arms. The former Journey frontman has released a cover of the Christmas classic “Silver Bells” as a digital single and via streaming services.
“The holidays are certainly a wonderful time of the year filled with many emotions,” Perry writes in a post on his Instagram page. “I’m very happy to share with you one of my favorite holiday songs, ‘Silver Bells’ done with my love for R&B mixed in…I hope it brings a smile to you and yours in this holiday season!”
Two versions of the track are available — a three-and-a-half-minute single edit and a full-length five-minute track. Perry also has released a newly mixed version of his 2018 holiday single, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” which originally came out in December of last year not long after the arrival of his first solo album in 24 years, Traces.
You can listen to all three tracks now at Perry’s official YouTube channel.
