Legendary Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has tapped equally iconic Cheap Trick singer Robin Zander for a new track, “Aye, Aye, Aye.”

The song is taken from Perry’s upcoming solo album, Sweetzerland Manifesto, due to debut Jan. 19.

Zander and Perry’s relationship goes way back. The pair have been friends for four decades, and according to an interview with Rolling Stone, they’ve always wanted to write a song together. So when they were in the same place at the same time, Zander called Perry up with a song in mind, and after hearing the chorus, Perry was sold.  

“Aye, Aye, Aye” is one of three collaborations between Perry and the Cheap Trick frontman slated for Sweetzerland Manifesto, which also features appearances from New York DollsDavid Johansen and Zak Starkey and is executive produced by Johnny Depp.
