Steve Tyler “Skrillex and Deadmau5 might be in my new album”

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is finally considering doing a solo album, and the rock and roll legend has admitted his bandmates may not like his new found love for dub step and electronica.

 

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Tyler said, “Joe (Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry)has done, like, four solo albums. I’ve got this itch in me to do a solo record. I’ve got an itch to do something that’s different than Aerosmith. My heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I’m not sure Aerosmith would like. I’m into electronica.”

 

As for potential collaborators, Tyler added, “I’m a huge Skrillex fan. I went to lunch with Deadmau5 – he’s got incredible ideas. 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 it’s f**king unreal.”
Tyler will begin work on the new album in January of next year, and has denied he will ever leave Aerosmith permanently to pursue his solo career. Check out a previous solo single, ‘Feels So Good’, that was released in 2011.
