Steve Perry was featured on the song “The Streets of Kinsale” released by the Irish folk group the High Kings.
The former Journey frontman noted that he first learned about the song through its writer, Glen Power, who is also the drummer for the Script. Perry said in an interview:
“I thought the song was beautiful, and the more I listened to it the more fascinated I became, so I went to my home studio and started stacking some vocal harmonies against what was already there.
“The band really loved the results, so I ended up singing on the master track.”
The High Kings was formed in 2008. Talking about the collaboration, the band member Darren Holden explained:
“When we heard what Steve had done to our song, I had to sit down.
“In the studio, we zoned out everything else and just listened to Steve’s wall of sound. It was so astonishing my jaw hit the floor; there were tears in my eyes. It’s something that only Steve can do with that tone that the world loves and knows.”
While Perry also mentioned that he got some new music but didn’t hinted when to release it saying:
“The truth is that I’m a bit lazy. … Right now, I’m only doing things that I can really emotionally connect with. Anything else, I kind of pull away from.”
