Aerosmith frontman and American Idol judge Steven Tyler said that his band’s new album is coming along. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer told Rolling Stone, “We’ve been in the studio for the last month.”
Tyler spoke with enthusiasm of Aerosmith’s reteaming with producer Jack Douglas, who was behind the boards for many of the band’s ’70s classics, including Toys in the Attic.
“We’re gonna have a vintage sound, ’cause we’re going to tape and a lot of good things like that,” Tyler said. “We’re keeping tracks lean, not a lot of overdubs, and like I said, we’re using Jack to his fullest. So you’re gonna hear some stuff where you might think Aerosmith’s back.”
The singer also said that fans should be preparing to catch Aerosmith out on the road: “June 18th it starts. So spread the word.”
