Another Dimension from Aerosmith!
I am sure I am one of thousands of fans who have waited eleven long years for a new project from the Bad Boys from Boston. The last album of all original material was “Just Push Play” from 2001. After a few delays and much anticipation, their new CD “Music From Another Dimension” finally drops on November 6th, marking the band’s 15th studio album.
The band recorded the album both in Los Angeles and at their studio in Massachusets. Jack Douglas, Steven Tyler, and Joe Parry produced it, with the exception of three tracks that Tyler and Marti Frederiksen produced.
“It’s not that it took ten years,” STEVEN TYLER says, “but that we were busy getting ready!”
“This is the album we wanted to make since the band got back together in 1984,” JOE PERRY says. “Can’t complain about number one singles or album-driven sold-out world tours, as we blaze the Aerosmith trail with our fans. But this is the record that when the five of us are in a room yelling turn up the volume, that room could be 1325 Commonwealth Avenue (a reference to the band’s first apartment where they lived and wrote their first song).”
MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION presents Aerosmith in ferociously fine form and at the peak of their powers. They’re the only band of their stature with all-original members and who are playing better than ever have before. The album abounds with one highlight after another, including “Out Go The Lights,” “Oh Yeah,” “Luv XXX,” “We All Fall Down,” “Street Jesus” and “Can’t Stop Loving You,” on which Tyler duets with Carrie Underwood. The single “Lover Alot” has already been released. The album also includes “Freedom Fighter,” which features Johnny Depp on backing vocals.
A deluxe version of MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION will include:
- Four live performance videos: “Rats In The Cellar,” “Train Kept A Rollin,” “Oh Yeah” and “Same Old Song and Dance”
- Exclusive interviews with the members of AEROSMITH
- Three exclusive new bonus tracks: “Up On A Mountain,” “Oasis” and “Sunny Side of Love”

Personally, I wonder when these guys will no longer be able to keep up the pace; but for now, nothing seems to stand in their way! There is definitely a lesson to be learned from watching them ebb and flow throughout the years: never let anything get in the way of the music.
