Massachusetts rockers Aerosmith are pushing back the release of Music From Another Dimension, their first studio album in 11 years, from August 28th to November 6th. According to frontman Steven Tyler, “It’s pushed back because too many people are releasing those weeks, and we don’t want to step on their release dates,” said Tyler. “So we said, ‘You know what, we got the goods, ain’t no doubt about [it], we’ll wait a couple months.'”
Music From Another Dimension will be the band’s first LP since 2001’s Just Push Play. The group released the record’s first single, “Legendary Child,” during the season finale of American Idol last month, but the song has failed to gain traction on both the Billboard and iTunes charts.
Sony will be releasing two more singles before the November 6th release date. The band performed a blues-tinged rock song “Oh Yeah” at the Minneapolis kick-off of their Global Warming tour, which is likely to be one of the singles.
“We accomplished what we set out to do, which was write some stuff so we could represent who we were in the old days,” Tyler told WMMS. “After all these years, you can become something other than you started out to be – and I’m not saying that’s a bad thing – but we kinda love our rock and I love the diversity of this band … I thought that was one of the secrets that Aerosmith had that other bands didn’t – a little bit of this, a little bit of that.”
Aerosmith fans anxiously await November 6th to see if they can recreate the rock sound that they used to represent in the “old days” with Music From Another Dimension.
