Here to Stay is the second album by the duo of composer Jan Hammer and guitarist Neal Schon. This album also featured contributions from Schon's bandmates in Journey including songwriting and background vocals from Steve Perry.

The lead single "No More Lies" featured Schon on vocals and had a music video that was played on MTV.

The album cover is a play on the well known Arm & Hammer brand baking soda.

"Self Defense" would later be re-recorded for Journey's 2005 album Generations (under the title "In Self Defense"), with Schon taking lead vocal duties once again.
