Steven Tyler Releases 'Sin City' Song For Robert Rodriguez Soundtrack
Steven Tyler has released the title track to director Robert Rodriguez’ new film, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which hits theaters on Friday (August 22nd). Tyler’s solo track -- "Sin City" -- appeared without fanfare on the movie’s soundtrack, which was released on Tuesday (August 19th), according to Ultimate Classic Rock. The movie, based on the graphic novel, is a sequel to 2005’s Sin City, and co-directed by writer Frank Miller and Rodriguez -- who along with Carl Thiel, wrote and performed the soundtrack. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For stars Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, with a cameo from Lady Gaga.
This isn’t the only new music Tyler's’s released this week apart from Aerosmith; his duet with Smokey Robinson on the Miracles’ classic "You Really Got A Hold On Me" was featured on Smokey's all star duets collection, Smokey And Friends — which also features the Motown legend singing his best loved songs with James Taylor and Elton John, among others.
Although Steven Tyler is among rock's most iconic frontmen for his work through the decades with Aerosmith, we asked him what creative wild oats he still needs to sow: "I'm just doing a solo record because I think it's kinky, y'know, to go write a song with Johnny Depp. I think it's ridiculous to go, y'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, y'know what I mean? But I get that in the press one has to hear that from one lead singer of one Aerosmith."
