Steven Tyler on New Aerosmith: "We’re Gonna Have a Vintage Sound"

Don't let the hype around American Idol fool you. Aerosmith is still a priority for Steven Tyler, who has reportedly been in the studio with the band for the last month finishing up work on their as-yet-untitled new album.

Speaking to Rolling Stone recently, Tyler said the band were taking an old-school approach to recording, foregoing many of the digital conveniences available to bands these days.

"We’re gonna have a vintage sound, 'cause we’re going to tape and a lot of good things like that," he said. "We’re keeping tracks lean, not a lot of overdubs, and like I said, we’re using Jack [Douglas, producer] to his fullest. So you’re gonna hear some stuff where you might think Aerosmith’s back."
