Steven Tyler Wants to Work With Deadmau5 and Skrillex on Solo Album


Well isn’t that interesting. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler gets to talking about an “itch” that he wants to scratch in the form of a solo album, and it looks like the sound of “electronica” is where he wants to go next:

I’ve got this itch in me to do a solo record, and that’s what I’m gonna do next. I’ve got some great people that want to get involved in it. It’s early on right now, but that’s the itch I got. I got that itch to do something that’s a lot different than Aerosmith… 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 fucking music that I want to get off my chest.

When they asked him who he’d be looking to do a solo record with, a few interesting names came up:

There’s so much good stuff out there. 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. He’s a single guy. He makes all the money himself when he puts the mouse head on, so he’s got a ton of money. He knows where to take it, and he’s still relevant. So it was a sick dinner, it was fucking unreal. I want to go out and explore things . . . I really want to take a little risk here and do something solo. There’s no timeline – I’m gonna start in January and see where we get by March.

Could we see the “Crazy” singer exploring EDM? What the hell would a Steven Tyler electronic album sound like?

  • NO.

    Welp, I’m gonna go kill myself now. Skrillex, Deadmau5, AND Steven Tyler? Really? What’s next? Benny Benassi and Carly Rae Jepson? Steven Tyler should go back to making shitty, tedious Aerosmith songs.

      Benassi and Carly Rae isn’t that hard to picture…
