Aerosmith 'Having Fun' Recording New Album

Photo Courtesy - Christopher Peterson/BuzzFoto/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- It looks like Steve Tyler wasn't joking when he recently said Aerosmith was heading to the studio straightaway to begin work on a new album.  Marti Frederikson, a longtime collaborator with the band, recently told Billboard that Aerosmith is "playing songs, putting together riffs, having fun, laughing and working from noon to 11 [p.m.]" when it comes to the new album.  Frederikson is working with Tyler, guitarist Brad Whitford, bassist Tom Hamilton and drummer Joey Kramer on the new album until February 2, which is when Tyler will start his live appearances on American Idol.  As for Joe Perry, Frederikson said he didn't make the sessions due to an unspecified commitment. 

The album, which will be Aerosmith's first since 2004's Honkin' on Bobo, seems to be coming along quickly. Frederikson said he and the band tackled four songs in the first three days of working together.  He added, "We're trying to move quick and not necessarily finish up songs and make them complete but just get a lot of stuff to choose from."  Frederikson feels the album will be composed of "a lot of good stuff, and they've got a lot of great stuff already from the past that hasn't been finished, a whole stockpile that just needs to be produced up."
