Def Leppard guitarist’s Delta Deep issues Christmas single

Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen’s blues project Delta Deep has issued a lyric video for the seasonal track "Take Me Home for Christmas."

Available November 27, the song sees Collen joined by singer Debbi Blackwell-Cook, Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo, and drummer Forrest Robinson.

"Delta Deep has this great Christmas song reminiscent of the 1940's jazz era," explains Collen. "We didn't plan it that way but that's just how the song came out. We love it because it's not like your traditional Christmas song. It's a track that can literally be played year round simply because it's mellow and full of that smoky blues sound that's a part of all of us."

Delta Deep released their self-titled debut album earlier this year.

The set icludes guest appearances by Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott, Whitesnake’s David Coverdale, Sex Pistols/Manraze drummer Paul Cook and Girl/Manraze bassist Simon Laffy.

Def Leppard’s new, self-titled album recently debuted at No. 10 on the UB Billbard 200.

Recorded earlier this year at frontman Joe Elliott's studio in Dublin, Ireland, “Def Leppard” marks the group’s seventh US top 10 album.

Def Leppard are currently playing shows in Australia and will perform in Singapore before a headlining December UK tour with Whitesnake and Black Star Riders.

The band will return to North America in the New Year to perform on a month-long US tour with Styx and Tesla.
