Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has confirmed that the band's new album is almost finished.

In an interview with Rolling Stone he says the band are working on mixing the new tracks this week:

It's really close. We've started to mix. We've mixed a couple of the songs already, but I guess this week we're really kind of rolling into mix mode. We have a couple of tracks left to finish up, just to put some overdubs on, but we're kind of going from the final, final recording tracks to mixing this week.



He also confirmed that the band will release a new single "in three or four weeks". It will be the first release from their 15th studio album - the follow-up to 2004's 'Honkin' On Bobo' – which will be produced by Jack Douglas, the man behind 1975's 'Toys In The Attic'.

Speaking of the new material, Perry said: "The record's gonna sound modern and hi-fi. We're not sitting around going, "We're gonna do Night in the Ruts again or Rocks again". We want to make a modern sounding record, but the main thing is the energy that the early records had."

The band's singer Steven Tyler has previously said that they are hoping to release their new record in July. One track 'Legendary Child', which is likely to feature on the record, will also appear on the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film soundtrack.
