Joe Perry to release part of his new solo album next year

We won't be hearing any of his new album this year but Joe Perry is looking to release some of his solo album in the new year.

In a recent interview with the Musician's Ear, Perry said the record is "in the can right now."

"I just need to polish it up a bit more," He said. "I'm looking to release some of it in the new year."

Perry first announced the project in 2015 and told fans it would be a mostly instrumental effort but it has changed direction since then.

"It's got all kinds of sounds, but I would probably say 'funky' is the quickest way to put it," Perry said. "Everything starts with rhythm and that vibe. When I’m writing songs, it always starts with some variation of R&B and funk, whether it’s been from the first Aerosmith stuff till what we’re going to work on this afternoon.”

Perry also revealed that the album involves singers Terry Reid, David Johanson and Iggy Pop.
