Aerosmith have Teamed up with Julian Lennon and Johnny Depp to Present a New Album
In some ways the partnership is unusual. However Aerosmith has teamed up with the unlikely pair of Johnny Depp and Julian Lennon. They are going to do a new album titled ‘Music from another Dimension’. It will be released in November if all goes well. This will be the band’s 15th studio effort and the official release date is the 6th of November. Previously they had indicated that they would release the new album on the 28th of August but they decided to push things back because of the hectic week where many releases were being dropped.
Their frontman Steve Tyler recently told Rolling Stone that he had met Julian Lennon in Los Angeles while working on American Idol, a music reality TV show. The singer is John Lennon’s eldest son. He agreed to contribute the vocals to the track ‘Love Three Times a Day’. Tyler says that he is ‘such a sweet fucking guy’. He also complimented him on his great voice and sense of humor.
Is this a match made in heaven?
Perhaps Johnny Depp is primarily known for his groundbreaking appearances in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. However it turns out that the actor is also a credible musician. He added backing vocals for the track ‘Freedom Fighter’. The band’s guitarist Joe Perry says that the song may end up on a later deluxe version of their album. Perry is happy that the band now has some songs to play on stage without having to repeat some of their old numbers. He seems to be fed up of repetitive performances that feature highlights such as ‘Walk this Way’ and ‘Dream On’. The guitarist says that he never wanted to be part of a ‘cover band’ but a bona fide outfit that can produce new songs.
The new record offers Aerosmith the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and ambitions. Meanwhile Tyler was willing to talk about his recent depart from American Idol. He says that he loved and hated the show at the same time. Apparently he sat next to J-Lo and made lots of money but then he begun to hate its ‘bigger than life’ image. The hard work was grueling with seven hour days and then recording with his band. Moreover he did not want to take the piss out of the kids contrary to the suggestions from the program makers. ‘Music from another Dimension’ is a follow up to the band’s album ‘Honkin on Bobo’ which was released in 2004. Jack Douglas heads the production team. He was the man behind ‘Toys in the Attic’ (circa 1975).
