The Aerosmith frontman is on his way with his debut album.
Steven Tyler is stepping away from the rock 'n' roll mythology that is Aerosmith to venture into more country territory for his upcoming debut solo album. And it really doesn't get more country than his uber hippy video for 'Love Is Your Name'.
Steven Tyler is going solo with 'Love Is Your Name'
The video for the new single has a woodland setting decked in vibrant scarves with a wooden shack and a white clad female 'muse', who personifies the concept of the whole visual, which Tyler describes as 'gypsy chic'.
'It became clear to me that Steven doing a country record, he's just following his muse like he's done his whole career', explains director Trey Fanjoy. Part of this muse was inspired by his own upbringing, which we get a glimpse of within the shoot. 'I came from a family that was a touring band. I grew up as a young boy with my pet raccoon, with my slingshot', Tyler reveals.

'It's a beautiful beginning of what this album will soon be like', insists Tyler, who will be working on getting the record completed later this year with his band Loving Mary.
