Steve Tyler Talks about New Album, and New Tour!

Steven Tyler of Aerosmith is a very busy man! Still enjoying the success of this year’s American Idol, he’s now also collaborating with his band Aerosmith for another album, and another tour. And fans who are yearning for the days of “Sweet Emotion” and “Walk This Way” will be pleasantly surprised; according to Tyler, this album will be going back to the early days of the band.

Recently sitting down with Rolling Stone, Tyler says that it doesn’t just sound like back in the day, but writing it also feels like back in the day. “We’re gonna’ have a vintage sound,” Tyler says, “Because we’re going to tape and a lot of good things like that. We’re keeping tracks clean, not a lot of overdubs. So you’re gonna’ hear some stuff where you might think Aerosmith’s back.” We didn’t think they had ever left; but maybe that vintage sound comes from the fact that they’ve once again teamed up with producer Jack Douglas, who worked with the band on their earlier albums “Toys in the Attic” and “Draw the Line.”

And, there’s even more Aerosmith news to get excited about. The band is going on tour, although details on that are few at the moment. Tyler needs to finish things up on the “Idol” stage before he can head anywhere else, although he did happen to sneak in an opening date in his Rolling Stone interview. “June 18th it starts,” he said. “So spread the word.”

We’re trying, Steven, we’re trying.
