It’s barely September, but you’ve likely already seen holiday decorations at the store — so that means it’s time for new holiday music, as well. Longtime Journey singer Steve Perry took the opportunity to share news of a new holiday record, The Season, which he will release on Nov. 5 via Fantasy Records.

Perry also premiered a preview of the record in the form of his rendition of the Yuletide classic “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” which you can hear below — unless you refuse to get in the holiday spirit this early into the fall:

Via a news release:

Steve notes, “I hope when people hear this record, they’re teleported in the same way I was when I recorded all these songs—I hope it brings them back to those golden moments with their loved ones and gives them that feeling of joy and connection and comfort that we all need so much.” All 8 tracks on the record come straight from the heart as Steve hopes to send listeners to the place they find the most comfort during the holiday season, which, for Steve, that is his grandmother’s home. “When I was recording vocals for “I’ll be Home For Christmas”, as I was singing “Please have Snow and Mistletoe and Presents under the tree” … I was emotionally thrown into standing in my grandmother’s house staring through the Door that I always hung Mistletoe and then I saw her beautiful Christmas tree in front of her living room window…I had to stop singing because it felt like I was really there ……. I was a bit stunned…Back Home for Christmas is where everyone wants to be!”

1. The Christmas Song
2. I’ll Be Home For Christmas
3. Auld Lang Syne
4. Winter Wonderland
5. What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve
