Aerosmith performed their new single ‘Legendary Child’ Wednesday night (May 23) on the season finale of ‘American Idol,’ as well as one of their classics ‘Walk this Way.’ ‘Legendary Child’ will be featured on the new album ‘Music From Another Dimension,’ due out on August 28th.

‘Legendary Child’ was to be on the soundtrack for the movie ‘G.I. Joe: Redemption,’ but the release date on the movie has been delayed until a March 29, 2013 release due to an upgrade needed on 3D. It was slated to be in theaters on June 29th. Didn’t a commercial for the movie air during the Super Bowl? Very poor planning on that one Paramount. Regardless, the track kicks ass and we can’t wait to hear more of the album.
