Def Leppard's New Music Is A Mixture Of Styles

. (Classic Rock) Def Leppard's Rick Allen says their latest material is a "wonderful mixture" of styles. They're currently working on the follow-up to 2008's Songs From The Sparkle Lounge and hope to release their 11th album later this year.

And the drummer reveals the new tracks encapsulate everything they've done before while still paying tribute to their musical influences.

On the subject of album he tells Talking Metal Digital: "We continue to pay homage to our roots - a lot of the bands we grew up listening to during the 70s. I think it's a wonderful mixture of everything that inspired us and everything we've done. I think people will hear many different influences."

Allen says the majority of the 16 tracks they've been working on are almost finished and reveals some are "just about ready to present."

He continues: "We've carved out three good long sessions where we all got together. And within those time periods we were able to put about 16 songs together and as of right now, they're more or less about 85-90% finished - some of them even more so. Some are just about ready to present, so we're really excited about it. It's been a really nice project. " Read more here.
