Julian Lennon announced Wednesday his new single “Someday” that features Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler will be released next month on iTunes.
The song, which will be released April 8, “highlights another year of inspiration for me, in regards to my music, photography and philanthropy work, and 'Someday' is a reflection of that,” Lennon said in an email announcing its release.
Tyler told the London Evening Standard that he and Lennon decided to collaborate after Lennon heard him sing in the shower.
"A lot of stuff happens in L.A. We were staying at a hotel where Julian Lennon was staying, and one morning I was singing in the shower. The window was open, and I just heard, 'Steven?' We brought him over to the studio and he sang on the opening track," he said.
Lennon's contribution to Aerosmith was to add backing vocal to "Love XXX," which appeared on the group's "Music From Another Dimension" album.
