Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler signs with new management

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has made some changes to his team as he prepares to work on his debut solo album.

Billboard reports Tyler is now being managed by Larry Rudolph and Rebecca Lambrecht of Rudolph's ReignDeer Entertainment, which counts Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus among its clients.

"At this exciting new time in my career, there was need for a big change,” says Tyler. “After meeting and getting to know Larry and Rebecca and seeing that we all share the same vision, I knew it was the perfect time for me to work with people who truly have my best interest and well-being in mind. I look forward to making incredible history together and having FUN while we take over the world, work and travel on the most adventurous journey you could ever imagine."

The singer has also added Amanda K. Ruisi of AKR Public Relations to his team.

Fresh off Aerosmith’s Let Rock Rule tour, Tyler will now focus on writing and recording his debut solo album, a project that’s been in the works for some time.

“I’m going down to Nashville [in] January, February, March, April to write and see what we get,” Tyler revealed during a video Q&A with Twitter Music at Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco this past week. “You know, doing an album is kind of like panning for gold. You get so much sand and dirt until you find a little nugget and you work on the nugget. I always go backwards, you know? ‘Living on the Edge,’ why? Or ‘Janie’s Got a Gun,’ why? Who’s Janie? And then it works. You fill in the blanks.”

In 2011, Tyler released a single, “(It) Feels So Good”, which debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 at No. 35, the highest charting song by any member of Aerosmith since 2001's "Jaded".

Last fall, the singer said he was in talks with Rick Rubin to produce his solo debut.
