Aerosmith will play their new single on the season finale of "American Idol", Joe Perry told Rolling Stone. On the May 23 edition of the series, the legendary rockers will perform "Legendary Child", which is both the lead single from their forthcoming album and their contribution to the "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" soundtrack.

Steven Tyler and pals shot a video for the single last week. The movie hits theaters on June 29.

As for Aerosmith's still-untitled album, Perry said: "It's really close. We've started to mix. We've mixed a couple of the songs already, but I guess this week we're really kind of rolling into mix mode. We have a couple of tracks left to finish up, just to put some overdubs on, but we're kind of going from the final, final recording tracks to mixing this week."

The album is due for a fall release, following Aerosmith's summer tour with Cheap Trick, which begins June 16 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com

    I imagine Joe Perry saying all of this cheap promotional release crap with clenched teeth. This is all a ploy of Steven Tyler. The rest of those guys, I'm sure, wanted to do this legitimately. Steven Tyler, you have robbed Aerosmith of its Greatness status.

    Aerosmith: one of the greatest blues-inspired rock bands of all time. American Idol: reality competition with little legitimacy in which singers show off their talent at singing pop songs, and (if they win) receive no real popularity or "idolship" in the end. Something's not right here...

    Aerosmith is now officially bankrupt of rock-n-roll cred. Way to go fellas. Please report to the office and turn in your badges.

    Exactly, they're just a waste band. Would have been better if it weren't fronted by Tyler.

    Going to disagree with you on this one. If what you said is true, then every classic rock band has been that way since 1980.
