Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Going Solo

(hennemusic) Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has revealed plans to work on his first solo album next year which follows the 2011 release of his solo single, '(It) Feels So Good'.

"I had a lot of fun doing '(It) Feels So Good'I wrote that with Marti Frederiksen," Tyler tells Rolling Stone. "I've got this itch in me to do a solo record, and that's what I'm gonna do next. I've got some great people that want to get involved in it. It's early on right now, but that's the itch I got. I got that itch to do something that's a lot different than Aerosmith. Aerosmith's never been better, but we did that album [2012's 'Music From Another Dimension'].

"This last album was an Aerosmith all-for-one-and-one-for-all. But my heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I'm not sure Aerosmith would like. I'm into electronica I was when I used to listen to Stockhausen in '65. So there's just a lot of stuff good, weird f**king music that I want to get off my chest. The band will be playing, and we're going to China and Singapore. It's gonna open up a whole new world for Aerosmith. So Aerosmith will always be around, but I got this itch and I know how to scratch it."

Asked who he might work with on the project, Tyler says "There's so much good stuff out there. I am a huge Skrillex fan. I went to lunch with Deadmau5 at Mel's Diner. He's got incredible ideas for his next tour blew me away, what he's gonna do. He's a single guy. He makes all the money himself when he puts the mouse head on, so he's got a ton of money. He knows where to take it, and he's still relevant. So it was a sick dinner, it was f**king unreal. I want to go out and explore things . . . I really want to take a little risk here and do something solo. There's no timeline I'm gonna start in January and see where we get by March." more on this story
