Def Leppard Release New Recording of Hysteria

(hennemusic) To celebrate the kick off of their Las Vegas residency, "VIVA Hysteria!" on Friday, Def Leppard have released a newly recorded version of "Hysteria," the title track and hit single from their 1987 album of the same name.

Leppard will perform 11 shows at The Joint between March 22 and April 13; they'll play the "Hysteria" album in full, in addition to a greatest hits segment.

The new single is the latest song re-recorded by the band, who explained the situation in interviews last year.

"It was, well, let's just say a sensible business decision on our part," Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott told MTVHive. "How can I put this politely? We were having a major disagreement with our ex-record label about the digital rights for our back catalog. We couldn't come to a mutual understanding that seemed fair for both sides. So we finally just decided to re-record all our hits. We started with 'Sugar' and 'Rock of Ages,' and I think we did a pretty good job. It's hard work trying to recreate something you did 30 years ago." more on this story
