Steven Tyler Wants to Work With Skrillex
Steven Tyler recently sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his plans to release a solo album. And from the looks of things, all of you Skrillex lovers out there are in for a treat — the Aerosmith frontman admitted to being a huge fan of the EDM superstar and wanting to work with him on his upcoming record.
“I got that itch to do something that’s a lot different than Aerosmith,” explained Tyler. “Aerosmith’s never been better, but we did that album. This last album was an Aerosmith all-for-one-and-one-for-all. But my heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I’m not sure Aerosmith would like. I’m into electronica – I was when I used to listen to Stockhausen in ’65. So there’s just a lot of stuff – good, weird f—ing music that I want to get off my chest.”
“There’s so much good stuff out there,” he continued, thinking of which artist he’d like to collaborate with. “I am a huge Skrillex fan. I went to lunch with Deadmau5 at Mel’s Diner. He’s got incredible ideas for his next tour — blew me away, what he’s gonna do.”
Although Tyler has not disclosed a release date for his solo album just yet, we can safely say that we’re pumped for this potential collaboration! What about you guys?
