Posting on her Twitter account, Billie Perry shot down stories that sessions for the new Aerosmith album would be delayed because of Perry’s alleged hearing issues. So, all this talk is just the same old song and dance.

Joe Perry had previously announced that Aerosmith will enter the studio in July with legendary producer Jack Douglas to work on the band’s first album of all new material since 2001's ‘Just Push Play.’

Perry said that the new album will draw inspiration from fan commentary, which has apparently been place in some kind of futuristic “creative blender.” We are working hard to get photos of this machine for you.
