The list of October 2018 new music releases is highlighted by an unexpected treat for Journey fans: Steve Perry is back with his first solo album in nearly 25 years. Traces was co-produced by Perry and Thom Flowers, who has previously worked with Danny Elfman and Lagwagon, among others.
Elsewhere, Elvis Costello said he intended his upcoming studio project with the Impostors to echo the style of 1982’s Imperial Bedroom and 1998’s Painted From Memory. The late Lemmy Kilmister served as inspiration for the title track on High on Fire‘s new record.
Ace Frehley‘s Spaceman includes eight originals and a cover of the Eddie Money hit “I Wanna Go Back.” A six-disc, 140-track expanded reissue of Imagine will be released on what would have been John Lennon‘s 78th birthday.
Lindsey Buckingham‘s upcoming three-disc compilation of solo material also includes live versions of some of his most famous Fleetwood Mac songs. There are also Christmas albums on the way from Eric Clapton and William Shatner, whose record boasts an all-star musical cast.
