Hear Steven Tyler’s ‘We’re All Somebody From Somewhere’
Steven Tyler is gearing up to release his debut solo country project in mid-July, and in advance of its release, the singer has shared the disc's title track, "We're All Somebody From Somewhere."
Tyler co-wrote and co-produced "We're All Somebody From Somewhere" with the Cadillac Three's Jaren Johnston. The song's lyrics juxtapose various facets of life -- "Seattle coffee" with "Memphis blues," "Hollywood" with "New Orleans" and "that fine red wine off the vine" with "cheap brown whiskey," for example -- to explain that, as the song's title says, "we're all somebody from somewhere."
"There's a thousand stories 'tween me and you," Tyler sings before leading into the tune's chorus: "Yeah, we're all somebody from somewhere / Some mama, some daddy, some love in the air / Some big, some little, some left, some middle / Some white, yellow, black or red / Yeah, we're all somebody from somewhere ..."
"We're All Somebody From Somewhere" is the third solo single from Tyler, following “Love Is Your Name” and “Red, White & You.” Tyler, who is signed to Big Machine Label Group's Dot Records, performed the song on Today, as part of the show's summer concert series, on Friday (June 24), and the tune is now available for download on iTunes.
We're All Somebody From Somewhere is due out on July 15 and will feature 13 tracks; Tyler co-produced the album along with legendary musicians-slash-producers T Bone Burnett, Dann Huff, Marti Frederiksen and Johnston. On July 2, Tyler will begin a solo tour, dubbed the Out on a Limb Tour, which will include a stop at WE Fest 2016.
