Music fans are patiently waiting until November 6th to hear Music from Another Dimension, Aerosmith’s first album in eight years, but you can watch the band’s new music video for the lead single “Legendary Child” today.
Steven Tyler announced on his website yesterday that the video would premiere on Aerosmith’s VEVO Channel July 10th and even posted three screen shots. “OK…THE LABEL MAY KILL ME 4 THIS…LEAKING SOME PICS B4 THE PREIMIERE TOMORROW…OOOOOOOOPS!!!!” Tyler posted, with excessive use of caps lock and creative spelling giving away his obvious excitement. Watch below.
The video begins like a movie trailer about “America’s Greatest Rock band,” mentioning that they have survived varying musical trends, industry struggles, divorce, drug addiction and even bad sushi. If Aerosmith keeps up with the episodic theme, “Legendary Child” might be part one of what could be many cinematic music videos… with girls on roller skates (“Legendary Child” stars Alexa Vega, famous for her role as Carmen Cortez in Spy Kids).
