The band are currently recording their 14th studio LP with producer Jack Douglas. It will be their first since 2004's Honkin' on a Bobo.
Frontman Steven Tyler told Rolling Stone: "We've been in the studio for the last month. We're going to have a vintage sound, 'cause we're going to tape and a lot of good things like that.
''We're keeping tracks lean, not a lot of overdubs, and like I said, we're using Jack to his fullest. So you're going to hear some stuff where you might think Aerosmith's back.''
The 63-year-old American Idol judge added: "I'm having such a good time writing again.
"You got the songs right now where they're like shells, with no lyrics and no melody, and I get to fill in the blanks like I did with 'Back in the Saddle' when it was just a track.''
Aerosmith's new album is expected to be released later this year.
