AEROSMITH Frontman Talks 'Music From Another Dimension'
- July 20, 2012
AEROSMITH's 15th studio album, titled "Music From Another Dimension", will arrive on November 6 via Columbia Records. The CD was helmed by producer Jack Douglas, who previously worked with AEROSMITH on classic early albums like "Toys In The Attic" and "Rocks" as well as on 2004's "Honkin' On Bobo".
When asked if the new album is full of rockers, AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler told RollingStone.com, "No. I wrote a song called 'Beautiful', and it was looked upon by the other guys as not AEROSMITH. It's off the beaten path. But anything that I question these days, I just go, 'Fuck it, let's do it.' And there's another full-bodied melody song called 'It Could Have Been Love'. I can't get away from it. My dad went to Juilliard and played a Steinway, and when you've been given the gift of music, you've got to play to your muse. Otherwise it's gonna bite you in the ass. [laughs]"
On the topic of whether all of AEROSMITH's members contributed to the songwriting process for the new CD, Tyler said, "Yeah! The band has really come to the table, and I'm so fucking proud of that. Joe Perry brought astounding stuff. [Drummer] Joey Kramer wrote one. [Guitarist] Brad Whitford plays some fantastic leads. [Bassist] Tom Hamilton wrote a couple of great songs that we put on the album, where in the past his songs have been shunned."
