I am the AeroFANatic. The song is "Closer." Aerosmith most likely will be releasing "What Could Have Been Love" and "Another Last Goodbye" first, then Closer. So most likely it's single is planned on coming out around Jan/Feb timeframe. Promotion on Idol, Grammys maybe, etc
But of course, the album comes out in Nov, so we'll all first hear it then!
Thanks for all the information, aerofanatic. I'm truly grateful for all the information you have provided us.
I hope this song becomes a smash and tops every single chart out there. One can dream, right? :3
I'm still curious how they'll handle Carrie's singles from BA (particularly single 3, since BA will peak in the fall), if this Aerosmith duet is released to country radio. Will Team Carrie continue as normal & release a 3rd single as usual, or wait until the duet has peaked? I wonder how difficult it would be to promote both at the same time?
Aerofanatic-- is it possible that they would release Closer to country radio while releasing the rock singles to rock at the same time? Or is Closer more of a rock power ballad? Thanx!
Lots of country and pop singers have two songs climbing the charts at the same time- one a duet or collab and one a solo project. So this has been done before and shouldn't be a big deal.
Given how radio charts are manipulated these days they can just hold back one of the carrie singles a few weeks so the duet can peak first etc.
Wow, that sounds exciting! I'm glad Carrie gets to be involved in such great projects. It's cool to see her do things outside of the country music genre. I look forward to hearing her duet with Aerosmith. It's going to be great, I'm sure.
I am dying to hear a snippet.
The interviewer Said it had a Sugarland-Bon Jovi Duet vibe going on-- which sounds great!
Hmm, Tony Bennett's tweet got me thinking...... Tony was helped by the power of Carrie to get him a spot on the Grammy's.... Aerosmith coming out with the duet Jan/Feb..... I'm thinking grammy performance for promo?
On a general note, big stars sometimes sing backup only as well. Shania Twain is big, but she sang backup to Britney Spears' "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know", Ke$ha sang backup to Britney Spears' "Till The World Ends", Jordin Sparks sang backup to Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper", Justin Timberlake sang backup to Sheryl Crow's rendition of "Sign Your Name", Avril Lavigne sang backup to Rihanna's "Cheers (Drink To That)", etc.
Yes this is a duet not background vocals.
Usa today and this radio guy confirmed that. He said it has a bon jovi- jen nettles duet vibe.
Carrie's is a duet and Lauren's is Background vocals
Really deviously worded title - Carrie still hasn't confirmed the duet.
I'm getting increasingly excited though...I don't know if I want it to be more country (cuz that will hopefully get it some Nashville airplay), or more rock (cuz I REALLY WANT A HARD-ROCK STUDIO CUT BY CARRIE!)
