The video for Steven Tyler's first ever solo single, "(It) Feels So Good" will premiere on American Idol May 12, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The song debuts on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show May 9.
The clip was shot just after Easter by Norwegian director Ray Kay, who has such credits as Lady Gaga's â€œPoker Faceâ€, Britney Spears' â€œTill the World Endsâ€ and Justin Bieber's â€œBaby.â€
â€œItâ€™s everything you would expect to get from a classic Aerosmith video,â€ a source said.
Apparently you can take the frontman out of the band, but you can't take the band about of the frontman.
Tyler will, for example, be wearing a one-of-a-kind leather jacket.
Tyler has been ramping his career up again between Idol, his new memoir and cover stories in People and Rolling Stone, and the rocker has been quite forthcoming out his past.
In one interview he revealed how much he thinks he spent on drugs over the years, and the amount is staggering. See how much after the jump!
Tyler estimates he spent $20 million on drugs over the span of his career. Considering Aerosmith has been big since about 1973, that's about $536,000 a year on drugs.
Ah, the rock star lifestyle.
