Steven Tyler has released the title track to director Robert Rodriguez’ new film,Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which hits theaters on Friday (August 22nd). Tyler’s solo track — “Sin City” — appeared without fanfare on the movie’s soundtrack, which was released on Tuesday (August 19th), according to Ultimate Classic Rock. The movie, based on the graphic novel, is a sequel to 2005’s Sin City, and co-directed by writer Frank Miller and Rodriguez — who along with Carl Thiel, wrote and performed the soundtrack. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For stars Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, with a cameo from Lady Gaga.
This isn’t the only new music Tyler’s’s released this week apart fromAerosmith; his duet with Smokey Robinson on the Miracles’ classic “You Really Got A Hold On Me” was featured on Smokey’s all star duets collection, Smokey And Friends — which also features the Motown legend singing his best loved songs with James Taylor and Elton John, among others.
- Although Steven Tyler is among rock’s most iconic frontmen for his work through the decades with Aerosmith, we asked him what creative wild oats he still needs to sow: “I’m just doing a solo record because I think it’s kinky, y’know, to go write a song with Johnny Depp. I think it’s ridiculous to go, y’know, write a bunch of songs that I started five years ago and never finished. It feeds my passion, you know. But, no, the band’s not breaking up. Me doing a solo record doesn’t mean the band’s not working on a record, y’know what I mean? But I get that in the press one has to hear that from one lead singer of one Aerosmith.” :
