Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has announced a new solo album, Sweetzerland Manifesto MKII.
The new record drops on May 26. The new LP includes six new tracks and alternate vocal appearances and mixes from the earlier version.
“We had so many songs and with everything going on with the Vampires, Aerosmith, COVID, not touring and touring, this music kept riding along for me,” Perry explained in a press release.
“It was like the engine of a train that wasn’t going to stop. I’d wanted to put these songs out, and the idea of adding them to a vinyl release or Deluxe Version turned into doing MKII,” he continued. “I tend to think in terms of albums. The first one had a vibe, and MKII is a little more rocked out. I almost prefer it. It’s one of those records I can play from front to back live.”
Perry has already released the first song from the album, “Fortunate One,” featuring the Black Crowes‘ Chris Robinson and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots.
The song was co-written and recorded in London with Joe’s sons Tony and Roman.
