VIDEO: Aerosmith talk about American Idol appearance

Aerosmith have a new single, “Legendary Child,” to promote, and the band did just that last week when they performed the track on the American Idol season finale.

The song will appear on both the new album, “Music From Another Dimension,” due August 28 – and in the film "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," which hits US theatres on June 29.

In addition to the new tune, the Boston band also rocked Idol with their classic, “Walk This Way.”

Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer and Brad Whitford spoke with Access Hollywood following the Idol finale about the experience.

“It was a moment we’ve been looking forward to,” explains Hamilton. “The opportunity - no matter where it is - to bring the news that we’ve got a new record out, a new song ‘Legendary Child.’ I can’t believe it – it’s up on iTunes, and it’s just an unbelievably exciting satisfying moment.”
