Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen shared the story behind the band's just released new song "Dangerous." The track comes from their forthcoming self-titled album, which is set to be released on October 30th (vinyl on November 6th).

Collen shared the following background on the new track with WRIF radio (via Blabbermouth), "I had a demo for 'Dangerous' as well, pretty much the whole music of that I had done.

"It was called 'Dangerous Drug' and Joe [Elliott] said, 'Wouldn't it be great if we called it 'Dangerous' and make it this kind of singalong chorus? We literally copied it exactly [for the album version]. I'd redone the guitars. We'd just done a slightly different guitar sound.

"We might have even kept some of the original demo, I'm not sure. That's really how it went...We didn't change anything musically at all."
