Steven Tyler is "itching" to do a solo album, the singer said in an interview with Rolling Stone released on Thursday.
"That's what I'm gonna do next," Tyler said.
"I've got some great people that want to get involved. It's early on right now, but that's the itch I got. I got that itch to do something that's a lot different than Aerosmith," he said.
Other than a single entitled (It) Feels So Good, Tyler has only had his name attached to Aerosmith albums for the past 40 years.
The singer said he wants to do "weirder, off-the-cuff stuff" and that he's "into electronica."
There's a lot of music he wants to "get off his chest," he said and that he is in talks with Deadmau5 to work on his solo record, which he plans to start working on in January 2014.
The band has upcoming tour dates in the U.S. and will be headlining at the LivingSocial Festival in New York City on July 13. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Yeasayer are also set to perform at the launch of this new festival. More artists are expected to be announced.
The Aerosmith frontman and the band's guitarist, Joe Perry, will be inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Saturday, June 22. Patti Austin and John Legend, who is being introduced into the hall by Stevie Wonder, are also being recognized.
The proceeds from the event will go toward funding for music programs in schools, and Tyler and Perry are big supporters of the cause.
They will be performing five songs at the Hollywood Bowl, including Walk This Way and I Don't Want to Miss a Thing. A 98-piece orchestra will accompany them.
The two were honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame in April.
"Music expresses what cannot be put into words," Tyler told Rolling Stone.
"So here we are getting an award for it," he said.
