Iconic songwriter and prolific singer Steven Tyler revealed last week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that his highly anticipated debut solo album will be released July 15 worldwide on Dot Records, underneath the Big Machine Label Group umbrella.
Revealing the cover art while chatting with Ellen, Tyler shared that he co-produced the 13-track album entitled We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, alongside legendary musicians/producers T Bone Burnett and Dann Huff in addition to Marti Frederiksen and Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three). On June 24, Tyler will release the album’s title track “We’re All Somebody From Somewhere” at Country radio and digital retail partners everywhere.
“I headed down to Nashville last spring to start working on this project, wrote some kick ass songs with some of Music City’s finest songwriters and now we get to share them with the world on July 15,” said Tyler. “Country music is the new Rock ‘n Roll. It’s not just about porches, dogs and kicking your boots up. It’s a whole lot more. It’s about being real. And nothing is more real than understanding We’re All Just Somebody From Somewhere.”
Fans across the country can experience live versions of the new tracks, in addition to signature hits throughout the limited-run, 19-city solo tour, STEVEN TYLER’S OUT ON A LIMB.
