Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler says that the band will get to work on a new album sooner rather than later, but first he wants to finish his long-in-the-works solo debut. Tyler told us 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. 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.
Aerosmith's latest album, Music From Another Dimension, came out in November 2012 and debuted at Number Five on the Billboard 200 album chart, selling 63,000 copies in its first week of release.
The band has scattered live dates booked throughout the summer, starting with an appearance this Saturday (July 6th) at the PGA Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
