Aerosmith ‘Starting from Scratch’ on New Album

Recording sessions for Aerosmith’s first album of new material in a decade are coming along just fine, according to guitarist Brad Whitford. In a just-published interview with the Boston Herald, Whitford said the band is “really starting from scratch.” The sessions, which are being slotted around Steven Tyler’s American Idol schedule, are taking place at producer Marti Frederiksen’s home studio in Los Angeles.

“We basically go in the studio, just stone cold, and try to come out at the end of the day with another song, and so far it’s worked great,” Whitford said. “It has been great working at Marti’s. His whole house is basically geared toward making music, so that’s what we are doing all day long.”

Aerosmith hasn’t set a target date for the album’s completion, but Whitford said he’s encouraged by the rapid progress thus far.

“A lot will depend on how much we get done this week and when we can get back together again to sort of finalize it,” he said. “Hopefully, we will be listening to it sometime this year.”

Russell Hall has been writing about music for the past 15 years. His past credits include Alternative Press, Request Magazine, and the Oxford American. Currently he contributes regularly to Goldmine Magazine, No Depression, and Performing Songwriter. He also maintains a music blog for the South Carolina newspaper The Anderson Independent-Mail.
