Steve Perry gifts fans with a Christmas song: "Thank you for all your kindness"

Myriam SantosSteve Perry has had a big year and he's thanking his fans with a little holiday gift.

This year, the former Journey frontman released Traces, his first new album of original material in 24 years.  He writes on Twitter and Instagram, "This has been a big year of firsts for me. In keeping with that spirit, I thought I'd record a little Christmas card song and send it out to you to thank you for all of your kindness in welcoming me back. Have yourself a merry little Christmas. I hope you enjoy it."

Along with that message, he's posted a version of the holiday classic "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" that runs just under two minutes. You also can check out the track on his official YouTube channel.

So far, there's no word on whether or not Perry will follow up the album with a tour.
