Earlier this year Aerosmith announced they had put off plans to tour the U.S. in order to spend more time in the studio.
In a new interview, guitarist Brad Whitford said that the band recently began tracking a new song while in London during their European tour.
“This song is a musical idea of Joe Perry‘s,” he told Billboard Argentina. “We’re doing it very much like we did songs back when we started out. It’s very rock ‘n roll.”
"You know, you don’t have to record a whole CD anymore,” he continued. “So, hopefully, we can put out this one song or two or three.”
Last year, Steven Tyler sparked talk that Aerosmith were likely to retire soon and changed the name of their European dates the Aero-Vederci Tour.
Whitford admitted that he does see an end in sight, even if he’s not really sure when that will be.
“Hopefully, there’s five more years,” he said. “If not longer. We’re going to keep playing until we can’t play anymore.”
