Aerosmith to release 'new' song on the 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' soundtrack
Aerosmith's Steven Tyler has revealed that the band will be contributing a song to the 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' film soundtrack.

The track, called 'Legendary Child', is an outtake from their 1993 record 'Get A Grip.' As Roadrunner Records' website reports, the band are currently in the process of mixing the previously unreleased song which will also likely appear on their next studio album. You can listen to an early version of the song by clicking here.

Aerosmith are said to be working with producer Jack Douglas, who collaborated on their 1975 release 'Toys In The Attic' and 1976's 'Rocks', on their next record.

Speaking about 'Legendary Child' on the blue carpet at the 'American Idol' series 11 launch, Tyler said that he is hoping to finish the new record in May, just in time for the band's recently-announced US tour this June. You can hear him discuss the new song and the forthcoming album by clicking on the player at the bottom of this page.

Aerosmith's drummer Joey Kramer recently complained that Tyler "tortured him", while guitarist Brad Whitford said he was "extremely demanding". But speaking on American news show 60 minutes, Tyler claimed that his "cruel" treatment of the rest of the band has made them who they are today. The singer told CBS' Lara Logan: "You know what? I'm going to be big-headed right now. I think my perfectionism and my busting everyone's chops is what got this band to where it is today. In the end, I get a really good song and in the end, I get the hits. Yeah, I'm that good."
