RollingStone.com are premiering the album, one track at a time, in the weeks leading up to the release.
The initial spark behind the mid-tempo track 'Closer' started with Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer. He had an idea that he wanted to explore and dove into it during a 90-minute jam session with longtime band collaborator Marti Frederiksen.
"He's one of the few guys who has the patience to hear out my ideas, because I'm not musical that way. I wanted to do something at that particular tempo, so Marti and I started jamming together," Kramer says of songwriting with the producer-composer. "You always come out with something at the end of the day. Always. There's never a blank day."
