In a new interview, guitarist Brad Whitford tells Billboard Argentina that his band recently hit a London studio while they were touring Europe to start recording a new song.

“This song is a musical idea of Joe Perry‘s,” Whitford reveals. “We’re doing it very much like we did songs back when we started out. It’s a very rock ‘n’ roll [tune].”

Aerosmith currently is preparing to kick off a fall tour leg of South America and Mexico that will begin September 15 in Quito, Ecuador.

While rumor have circulated that the band may be considering retiring from the road in the not-too-distant future, Whitford tells Billboard Argentina that he thinks the group hopefully has at least “five more years.”

He adds with a laugh, “We’re going to keep playing until we can’t play anymore.”
