Steven Tyler To Feature Johnny Depp Songs On New Solo Record

Written by Mike Hohnen on July 5, 2013

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is getting restless over the release of his long-awaited solo album. It seems that Tyler hooked up with the great Johnny Depp and the two made sweet music together and the legendary rocker wants to strike while the iron is hot.

A solo effort from Tyler has been in the works for several years now and came to a head in 2011 with the track Feels So Good but soon lost steam. But now, following on from what we gather were very successful writing sessions with Depp – who often moonlights as a musician – Tyler has given the project a much-needed shot in the arm.

Tyler explains:

“I’m just doing a solo record ’cause I think it’s fucking kinky to go write a song with Johnny Depp. I think it’s fucking ridiculous to go write a bunch of songs I started five years ago and never finished. It feeds my passion. I like travelling all over the place and writing songs and seeing what we catch. It’s kind of like driftnetting for songs.”

Aerosmith fans needn’t worry about the upcoming record either, as it in no way indicates the band will be closing for business. Says Tyler, “No, the band’s not breaking up… Me doing a solo record doesn’t mean the band isn’t working on a record.”
