Def Leppard Finish New Album, New Song Coming Next Month: Def Leppard News

On Friday Def Leppard Finish New Album, New Song Coming Next Month was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott says the band's new album is essentially done and he provided more details about the effort and says that the first single will be released next month.

"Yeah, it's finished. We're just doing simple, last-minute adjustments," Elliott tells the Grand Forks Herald. "The first song is going to go to radio next month. It's a 14-track, 55-minute album. It's just called 'Def Leppard' because that's what it sounds like. It doesn't sounds like any one specific era of Def Leppard. It's got everything.

"You'll listen and you go 'Oh, that sounds like Def Leppard' or you'll go 'That is Leppard, but sounds a bit like Led Zeppelin or Queen but you can hear the AC/DC or the Crosby, Stills and Nash coming through.' We have not shied away from anything that's influenced us in our growing up periods of our life. Just because we've made the kind of music we've made doesn't mean to say we don't like all of this other stuff."

Expected to be released later this year, the UK rockers worked on the follow-up to 2008's "Songs From The Sparkle Lounge" after completing some marathon songwriting sessions last year, and Elliott says the band is proud of the results.

"We made this record as an artistic statement that we'd be happy to play in 10 or 15 years in time and go 'You know what? That is a great record. That was a great period in our career.'" Read more - here.
