Destiny's Child and Aerosmith are among the acts contributing new music to the soundtrack to the forthcoming movie "Charlie's Angels."
Aerosmith just finished a new song titled "Angel's Eye" for the album, which is due out on October 17. The disc will also include Destiny's Child's "Independent Woman," which was recorded specifically for the film. The remaining tracks on the LP have yet to be confirmed.
Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu star in "Charlie's Angels," which was helmed by music video director McG and is currently due in theaters in November.
In other Aerosmith news, singer Steven Tyler is reportedly recording an album on the side called "Mob Story: A Hip-Hoprah" under his real name, Steven Tallarico. The project is being produced by Jack Douglas, who (not coincidentally) is also producing the soundtrack to the mob-oriented TV series "The Sopranos." Tyler's project also features appearances from Sopranos stars Vincent Pastore
and Tony Sirico and Kamal from the Jerky Boys. Release information, including a label, is yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, Aerosmith is said to be shooting for a March release for its next album. The band went into the studio a few months ago to do pre-production with producer Matt Serletic, who did the chart-topping "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" (see "The Aerosmith Song You May Never Hear"), but the word is that the group is now producing the bulk of it on its own.
