Steve Perry re-records the Journey song "It Could Have Been You"

Steve Perry has collaborated with the band, The Effect to record a new version of Journey’s “It Could Have Been You.” The Effect features Trevor Lukather – son of Toto‘s Steve Lukather on guitars, Nic Collins – son of Phil Collins on drums, and Steve Maggiora of Toto on keyboards.

Perry has known Trevor Lukather since he was about 9 years old. quoted him to say: “One day we were talking about his new band, The Effect… He surprisingly mentioned ‘It Could Have Been You’ is one of his favorite tracks from that record, I told him I felt the same. I then said, why don’t you record it? He asked if I would sing on it if they did, I said… ‘Of course my most precious!'”

Perry says he always felt the song was “a diamond in the rough.” He posted on his socials: “I must say, singing on their powerful track brought out a vocal experience in me from years ago!”

The Effect replied back to him on Instagram: “We can’t wait for the world to hear this! It’s an honor Steve. You brought the power pipes!”

The song will be released on May 7. This may be the closest we get to Steve Perry and Journey together.

Here is the version he initially recorded with Journey.
