Aerosmith have been recording with long-time producer Jack Douglas (who worked on such classic albums as 1974's Get Your Wings, 1975's Toys In The Attic, and 1976's Rocks) on their 14th studio album and first set of original material since 2001's Just Push Play and first studio album since 2004's blues covers CD, Honkin' On Bobo.
Douglas stated about the process in a recent online update: "The new album should be out around May 2012. For those who are asking, this album will be raw, nasty, tough rock with a good deal of the old Aerosmith 'tongue in cheek.'"
About re-teaming with Douglas for the as-yet-untitled new album, bassist Tom Hamilton remarked recently: "For those of you who don't know who Jack is, he's the guy who we worked with, producing our best albums of the '70s - Get Your Wings, Toys In The Attic and Rocks. And it's really gonna be cool, because there's no one that knows more about the soul of this band and the creative part of this band. We worked with him on Honkin' On Bobo', but that wasn't all original material - most of that was not original material. This time it's gonna be all-new Aerosmith songs. When people say, 'What was it like to work with Jack back then?' all I can say is we just laughed the whole time; there was always laughter going on, and fun, but at the same time really digging deep to get performances that were even better than we thought we could do."
