The rockers' 15th studio album will be released during their Global Warming tour
Aerosmith have said that they hope to release their as-yet-untitled new album in July of this year.
Frontman Steven Tyler said that he would like the record to come out a month after the band’s Global Warming tour begins on June 16 in Minneapolis.
Tyler made the comments yesterday (March 28) at The Grove in Los Angeles, reports Billboard. Introduced by Jimmy Kimmel, Tyler said: “Doing a record in four months is unheard of in Aerosmith territory.”
He explained that the album, which follows 2004’s ‘Honkin’ On Bobo’, still needs to be mixed and that two more songs need to be written. The album will be produced by Jack Douglas, who was behind 1975’s ‘Toys In The Attic’. Drummer Joey Kramer said: “Jack is part of the Aerosmith DNA. On the first day of writing at rehearsal, that all came right back.”
Steven Tyler recently 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 Blabbermouth.net reports, the previously unreleased song will also likely appear on their new album. You can listen to an early version of the song by clicking here.
