Steven Tyler reveals debut solo album
The Aerosmith singer and songwriter confirms imminent release of a country album produced with T Bone Burnett and Dann Huff
Iconic songwriter and singer Steven Tyler revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently that his debut solo album will be released 15 July worldwide on Dot Records and Big Machine Label Group. Revealing the cover art while chatting with Ellen, Tyler shared that he co-produced the 13-track album entitled We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, alongside T Bone Burnett and Dann Huff, in addition to Marti Frederiksen and Jaren Johnston of The Cadillac Three.“I headed down to Nashville last spring to start working on this project, wrote some kick ass songs with some of Music City’s finest songwriters and now we get to share them with the world on July 15,” said Tyler. “Country music is the new rock ‘n’ roll. It’s not just about porches, dogs and kicking your boots up. It’s a whole lot more. It’s about being real. And nothing is more real than understanding we’re all just somebody from somewhere.”
US fans can experience live versions of the new tracks, in addition to signature hits, through the limited-run, 19-city solo tour, backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary.
Cited by Rolling Stone as as “one of the greatest singers of all time”, Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide. He has won four Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards and an Emmy Award, and in 2013 he was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.
On 24 June, Tyler will release the album’s title track ‘We’re All Somebody From Somewhere’. In the meantime, the album itself is available for pre-order from Amazon via the direct link: po.st/STyler
