The wait is finally over: after a lengthy build-up that started with the June release of the single "Legendary Child," Aerosmith releases its new album, "Music From Another Dimension!," today (Tuesday, November 6).
It's the Boston group's first album in eight years, since 2004's covers set "Honkin' On Bobo," and its first of all-new material since "Just Push Play" in 2001.
Bassist Tom Hamilton says that the title came from producer Jack Douglas -- who also worked on much of Aerosmith's vintage 70s music -- and reflects the general tenor of the album's 15 songs:
"I think that was Jack's idea and he just kinda kept pushing it and we're like, 'OK, alright, that sounds cool.' It wound up being the one that everybody was willing to vote yes on, so there you go. And it is...The music, when you listen to this, you're gonna hear a big range of stuff and everybody's voice is really represented on this record. And some of the songs, they're just different. They sound like they're from another dimension."
Though the songwriting team of Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, as usual, dominate the album, Hamilton, guitarist Brad Whitford and drummer Joey Kramer all have composing credits as well on "Music From Another Dimension!"
Aerosmith celebrated the album's release on Monday (November 5) by performing a free, hour-long show outside the apartment on Boston's Commonwealth Avenue where the quintet lived together from 1970-72; a historic plaque was placed outside the building, and Aerosmith played the new songs "Lover A Lot" and "Oh Yeah" as well as classics such as "Mama Kin," "Back in the Saddle," "Sweet Emotion," "Walk This Way" and covers of Rufus Thomas' "Walking the Dog" and Tiny Bradshaw's "Train Kept A-Rollin'."
Aerosmith resumes its Global Warming Tour on Thursday (November 8) in Oklahoma City.
