Before Phillip Phillips teared his way through his coronation song “Home” on the American Idol finale, Idol judge Steven Tyler took the stage with Aerosmith to bust out the group’s new single “Legendary Child”. The rock tune comes off the band’s forthcoming album Music From Another Dimension, due August 28 on Columbia. The LP is their first studio release since 2004’s Honkin’ On Bobo, and their first album to feature only original music since 2001’s Just Push Play. So, it’s been over a decade since Aerosmith have attempted a serious try for radio domination. Can “Legendary Child” nab them their first Top 10 hit since 2001’s “Jaded”?

Hear the studio recording of the single below, then check out the tracklisting for their 15th studio album.
