During a short chat with the Boston radio station WZLX earlier today (Thursday, October 31), AEROSMITH vocalist Steven Tyler told mid-day host Carter Alan that he is “finishing up some songs” for long-in-the-works solo debut, which is tentatively due next year.
Tyler recently told The Pulse Of Radio that his plans to go out on his own should not be a cause of concern for AEROSMITH fans. “I’m just doing a solo record because I think it’s kinky, you know, to go write a song with Johnny Depp,” he said. “I think it’s ridiculous to go, you know, write a bunch of songs that I started five years ago and never finished. It feeds my passion, you know. But, no, the band’s not breaking up. Me doing a solo record doesn’t mean the band’s not working on a record, you know what I mean? But I get that in the press one has to hear that from one lead singer of one AEROSMITH.”
Tyler issued his first-ever solo song, called “(It) Feels So Good”, in May 2011 while serving as a judge on “American Idol”.
The AEROSMITH frontman recently teamed up with the South Korean pop star Psy on a new record. In an interview with Italian magazine L’Uomo Vogue, Psy said, “When I was in middle school, I literally cried when AEROSMITH were singing ‘Crazy’ or ‘Amazing’ or whatever. They were my lifetime role models, and now I am collaborating with Steven Tyler. What the fuck, man? I love my life.”
AEROSMITH‘s latest album, “Music From Another Dimension!”, came out in November 2012 and debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling 63,000 copies in its first week of release.
