Ross HalfinAerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry are looking to thrill future generations of space travelers with their upcoming album. The duo stopped by ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday and told GMA’s Cecilia Vega that the band was looking to create something unique for their 15th studio album, Music from Another Dimension!
“We put our ideas together where it was like, what if we write a song for what their going to listen to in the shuttle 20 years from now going to Mars,” reveals the singer. “What kind of song would they want to hear?”
The legendary rockers also addressed their very public rift after Tyler's decision to be a judge on Fox’s American Idol. “Every night millions of people got to see that big lipped singer guy from Aerosmith sing up there, you know, being what he is,” explained Tyler. “It didn't hurt Aerosmith. They [the band] were a little jealous in the beginning that I took it. I didn't tell them I did.”
Perry denied that he was upset over Tyler taking the gig, but confirmed that he “was upset because I had to read about in the press.”
Aerosmith will soon head back out on the road this fall for a second North American leg of their Global Warming World Tour. The new trek kicks off in Oklahoma City on November 8, just two days after Music from Another Dimension! arrives in stores. As on their previous tour leg, Cheap Trick will support the band on all the upcoming dates.
