Steven Tyler hints at new album
Steven Tyler has hinted he is planning to make a new album, suggesting the record could see him experiment with country music
Steven Tyler has suggested he is set to release a solo album in 2015.
The Aerosmith frontman revealed the news during a Q&A session at Twitter's headquarters, saying new tracks could see him move away from his traditional sound and instead experiment with country music.
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the 66-year-old said: "I'm going down to Nashville in January, February, March, April to write and see what we get.
"Doing an album is like panning for gold. You get so much sand and dirt until you find a little nugget - and you work on the nugget."
Tyler went to explain where his love of country music comes from, saying: "I grew up with the Everly Brothers and there's a piece of me that just loves country so much. I'm not sure what kind of country that is, but it's got the fifth harmony. Anyone who knows the Everly Brothers - it's those kinds of melodies that are just so good."
Meanwhile, Tyler revealed recently he is "over the moon" that Liv Tyler, his eldest daughter, is pregnant again.
Liv already has son Milo, nine, with ex-husband Royston Langdon, and has confirmed that she and her boyfriend Dave Gardner are expecting their first child.
Her father told E! News: "I am over the moon that we are adding another member to our wolf pack."
He added: "Being a father and a grandfather is the greatest gift in life so far."
