Def Leppard Streaming New Song 'Let's Go'
"It has that swaggering, mid-tempo rhythm, like 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' and 'Rock Of Ages'," Elliott tells Rolling Stone. "The idea was, we wanted something familiar. I mean, when AC/DC comes back after years away, you're not going to get 'Bohemian Rhapsody' from 'em, you know? And you don't want it, either - you want 'Back In Black,' or something like it. For us, this is what we do. And it's something we enjoy doing.
"It's a call to arms, you know? Rick Savage wrote 80 percent of the song. I wrote the verses, he wrote all the music and the choruses. He came in with it, and we knew it was a classic Def Leppard song."
Elliott unveiled the tracklisting for the 14-song project this week as the group continue an extensive North American tour with Styx and Tesla. Stream the new song here.
