Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler has teamed up with Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt for a cover of The Rolling Stone’s ‘Brown Sugar’.

The track was recorded for the ‘Muscle Shoals … Small Town, Big Sound’ album paying homage to the iconic recording studio.

The album features covers of song recorded at Muscle Shoals in Alabama and all over the covers were also recorded at Muscle Shoals.

“The sound is one-of-a-kind,” explains Rodney Hall, son of Muscle Shoals co-founder Rick Hall. “When younger artists hear all of the music that came out of here over the past five decades, they want to check it out. This album is special because it brings together artists that have been inspired by the magic of the Muscle Shoals Sound.”

Keith Stegall, co-founder of Dreamlined Entertainment is also involved in the release. “This record has been a full circle for me,” says Keith Stegall. “It’s the music I grew up on and that impassioned me to become a writer and a record producer and the music to which I owe my love and deepest respect.”

Stegall started Dreamlined Entertainment in October 2017 with Australian Rob Potts. Rob died weeks later in a motorbike accident in Tasmania.

Incidentally, the song ‘Brown Sugar’ also has an Australian connection. Mick Jagger wrote ‘Brown Sugar’ in Braidwood, New South Wales when he was in Australian filming ‘Ned Kelly. In the book Rolling Stones 50 Jagger explained, “I wrote Brown Sugar in Braidwood in the middle of a field. They were really odd circumstances. I was doing this movie, Ned Kelly. and my hand got really damaged in this action scene. So stupid. I was truing to rehabilitate my hand and I have this new kind of electric guitar and I was playing it in the middle f the outback and wrote this tune”.

‘Muscle Shoals … Small Town, Big Sound’ will be released through Sony Music on 28 September.
