Aerosmith Tough Love Details

(Gibson) A new Aerosmith compilation, Tough Love: The Best of the Ballads, will be released by Geffen Records on May 10, Blabbermouth.net has reported. The release appears timed to capitalize on intense interest in the band sparked by Steven Tyler's role as a judge on TV's American Idol.

In early February, The Hollywood Reporter noted that sales of Aerosmith's "greatest hits" collections had increased 250 percent in recent weeks. In particular, the band's 1994 compilation, Big Ones, saw increased sales of 260 percent following the show's premiere on January 19. Similarly, 2004's Devil's Got a New Disguise: The Very Best of Aerosmith got a 146 percent boost after the show's second week. Two other Aerosmith compilations registered surges of 137 percent and 147 percent, respectively.

For the new collection, Geffen appears to have expanded the definition of the ballad by including such rockers as "Rag Doll" and "Love in an Elevator." Tracklisting
