According to Billboard.com, AEROSMITH has its first Adult Contemporary chart hit since 1998, when “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” reached No. 13. “What Could Have Been Love”, from the band’s 15th studio album, “Music From Another Dimension!” , debuts at No. 28.
AEROSMITH will complete their contract with Columbia Records on November 6 with the release of “Music From Another Dimension!”, and the group may join the ranks of acts like RADIOHEAD, NINE INCH NAILS and PEARL JAM who have left the major label world behind.
According to The Pulse Of Radio, AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler told reporters on a conference call earlier in the month that “if the band stays together, yeah, we’ll definitely go that route, something somewhere over there. We’ve been keeping record companies stocked with millions of shekels for years, been making a lot of people rich — not that we haven’t, but every now and then you get into arguments with labels (and) you think, ‘Where is all this money going?’ We’ve definitely thought of putting stuff out.”
Guitarist Joe Perry was more cautious about the idea, however, saying, “We’ve talked about every idea you can think of out there, and we really don’t know. There’s so many different directions we can go.”
“Music From Another Dimension!” is AEROSMITH‘s first album of all-new material in 11 years.
The band will begin a new leg of touring on November 8 in Oklahoma City, and plans to follow that with a world tour in 2013.
