Despite all the band–fueled rumors last winter, Steven Tyler never left Aerosmith. Technically, he still hasnt. After 40 years, though, he has recorded his first-ever solo song. That seems like enough reason to crank up the rumor mill OMG STEVEN TYLER IS LEAVING AEROSMITH, BEING REPLACED BY JUSTIN BIEBER!!!
His solo debut appears in a strange place: Space Battleship Yamato, a Japanese sci-fi film based on a popular anime television series. Tyler contributed Love Lives, a very Aerosmith-ey ballad not too far from Armageddons I Dont Want to Miss a Thing. Apparently Tyler wrote the song after reading an English translation of the movie script and viewing a few clips.
Love Lives will be released as a single on November 24th, one week before the movie opens in Japan. There are no plans for release in America or Europe. Check out part of the tune in a trailer below, and see what you think about the definitely true fact that STEVEN TYLER QUITS AEROSMITH FOR CAREER IN JAPANIMATION.
