Def Leppard have issued a video for “Let’s Go”, the lead single from their newly-released self-titled album.
The group’s 11th record and first new album in 7 years marks the follow-up to 2008’s “Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.”
“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’,” says frontman Joe Elliott. “You just have to wait for the stars to be aligned. For this new album, they seemed to have been for us, because we all played and sang great and wrote well.
“There's some great variety on there. Every single aspect of anything we've ever wanted to put out — acoustic, heavy, soft, slow, fast — it's there. That's why we call it 'Def Leppard' because, just like Queen were, we're capable of coming up with vastly different kinds of songs.”
Def Leppard hit the road in November for dates in Japan, Australia and Singapore, and will then perform a UK tour in December with Whitesnake and Black Star Riders.
The UK rockers will kick off 2016 with a US tour in the New Year with Styx and Tesla.
