After more than a decade, can you make it a few more months? Calling into Cleveland radio station 100.7 WMMS, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler explained that “too many people are are releasing those weeks, and we don’t want to step on their release dates.” And thusly — so as not to dwarf the competition, of course — the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have pushed the release of their forthcoming Music From Another Dimension back from August 28th to November 6th. “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 Aerosmith’s first full album since 2001’s Just Push Play, and we believe that it has potential to be a true return-to-form. “We accomplished what we set out 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.”
The band cashed-in on Tyler’s American Idol hook-up to debut the album’s first single, a metal-edged anthem called “Legendary Child,” during last month’s season finale. “Legendary Child” hasn’t seen the same sort of radio spins that “Jaded,” their last single, received, but the summer is still young and the days still getting hotter. Additionally, Tyler assured that Sony plans to release two singles between now and then. And as Rolling Stone points out, the band has been debuting new material during their Global Warming tour, which just kicked-off last week.
And so, eager fans will not be left high and dry; and it could very well be an Aerosmith summer, November release date or otherwise.
