|Steven Tyler & Joe Perry|
The long-awaited disc is the band’s first studio album of all-new material in 11 years. Two singles from the album, “What Could Have Been Love” and “Lover Alot,” were released simultaneously to radio this week. "This is the album we wanted to make since the band got back together in 1984," said Joe Perry, in a prepared statement. "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.” (The address is a reference to the Aerosmith’s first apartment, where they lived and wrote their first song)."
Regarding the long drought between studio albums, Tyler added, "It's not that it took ten years … we were busy getting ready!"
