American Idol judge Steven Tyler and his rock band Aerosmith are hard at work putting the finishing touches to their 15th studio album, set for release in May 2012. Producer Jack Douglas, who joined the band's recording sessions in July, a lot of the band's classic "tongue in cheek" style. He told Blabbermouth that the album will be "dirty and raw. The new album should be out around May 2012," wrote Douglas. "I know that's a long wait, but after the South American tour and Japan in October, November and December, we will just get back to work on it in mid-January. For those who are asking, this album will be raw, nasty, tough rock with a good deal of the old Aerosmith 'tongue in cheek'." we can't wait!
