Back in early June it was reported that Carrie Underwood was rumored to have a duet on the new Aerosmith album Music From Another Dimension which comes out November 6th.
Now we have confirmation that the duet exists and is in fact part of Aerosmith's album.
Mix 104.1 Music Director Mike Mullaney recently got to go backstage with Steven Tyler at one of Aerosmith's concerts this week and Tyler pulled out his iPod and let Mike take a listen to the record. Mike says about the Carrie Underwood duet:
"Then the surprise track was a duet -- and he recorded the duet with Carrie Underwood. I think people should kind of think back to the one that Bon Jovi did with Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland, so that was kind of the vibe, you know what I mean? Obviously he's fresh off 'Idol' and he knows the power of Carrie Underwood. At first the rest of the band didn't want to put it on there but their label convinced them, 'Guys, this will get you airplay in red states.' So that was that."
He didn't mention what the name of the duet is, but iTunes has the album up for pre-order and lists the tracks below, so fans can go ahead and take a guess.
- "What Could Have Been Love"
- "Street Jesus"
- "Legendary Child"
- "Oh Yeah"
- "We All Fall Down"
- "Another Last Goodbye"
- "Out Go the Lights"
- "Love Three Times a Day"
- "Shakey Ground"
- "Love a Lot"
- "Freedom Fighter"
- "Up on the Mountain"
UPDATE: According to MJ's Blog, the song that Carrie sings on the Aerosmith album is called Beautiful.
There also is a decidedly country song, “Beautiful,” that Hamilton (the band’s bass player) helped write and which features country superstar Carrie Underwood.
“I mean, we didn’t really sit down and say, ‘Let’s write something that sounds country,’ but it did come out, you know?” he says. “And it’s just a reflection of the fact that everybody in the band loves country music, so it’s going to be an influence at some point.”
