AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler performed several songs — including the title track of his debut solo album, the country-tinged "We're All Somebody From Somewhere" — earlier today (Friday, June 24) in New York City as part of the "Today" show's concert series. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Tyler's performance came just a week before he kicks off his summer tour, which begins July 2 and will run through September.
"We're All Somebody From Somewhere" will arive on July 15 via Big Machine Label Group's Dot Records.
The AEROSMITH frontman appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and spoke about the album, explaining: "I headed down to Nashville last spring to start working on this project, wrote some kick-ass songs with some of Music City's finest songwriters and now we get to share them with the world on July 15th."
He added: "Country music is the new rock 'n' roll. It's not just about porches, dogs and kicking your boots up. It's a whole lot more. It's about being real."
Tyler's latest single, and the album's title track, will be released on June 24. Tyler co-produced "We're All Somebody From Somewhere" with such heavyweights as T Bone Burnett, Dan Huff, Marti Fredriksen and Jaren Johnston.
Tyler spoke about the strength of the new material, telling Rolling Stone: "I believe y'all are gonna listen to this stuff and you're gonna agree with me that it fell from a star. I had nothing to do with this shit, it's just Nashville. There's something so magical about this town and me writing with all these people."
