Aerosmith Collect the Hits

Aerosmith’s latest greatest hits collection is due June 25th. As yet, the album is still untitled, but the collection will span thirty years, featuring hits from the band’s self-titled debut, as well as recent hits like “Jaded.” “We’ve got our Columbia era, we’ve got our Geffen era and we’ve got our neo-Columbia era, and we want to cover all that,” bassist Tom Hamilton told Rolling Stone in March. “Really from [1975’s] Toys in the Attic until now.”

The upcoming compilation will have three new tracks on it, including “Girls of Summer,” which Aerosmith played a few bars during their MTV Icon special. They will also make a video for the song.

“There are a couple songs coming into their own,” Hamilton said, “but nothing definite yet. All we know is that the collection will have a couple good new songs on it, and we’re not going to put it out until we’re satisfied. It’s not like we want to take a couple of old shoes out of the closet and throw them out there.”

The band is also planning a summer tour, and a Behind the Music episode is expected to air in July.
