Def Leppard stream new single Take What You Want

Def Leppard are streaming “Take What You Want” as the latest single from their forthcoming album, “Diamond Star Halos.”

The tune follows “Kick” as the second preview to the UK band’s twelfth studio record and first since a self-titled 2015 set.

Over the past two years, Def Leppard recorded “Diamond Star Halos” simultaneously in three different countries with Joe Elliott in Ireland, Rick Savage in England, and Phil Collen, Vivian Campbell and Rick Allen in the United States.

The 15 track album mixes the group’s classic sound while giving a nod to influences such as David Bowie, T. Rex, and Mott The Hoople, among others; the title itself references T. Rex’s “Bang a Gong (Get It On).”

Special guests on the record include Alison Krauss – on “This Guitar” and “Lifeless”, and David Bowie pianist Mike Garson, who performs on “Goodbye For Good This Time” and “Angels (Can’t Help You Now).”

Due May 27, “Diamond Star Halos” will be available in multiple configurations, including a Deluxe Edition, 2-LP Vinyl, Digital formats and more.

Def Leppard will team up with Motley Crue for a rescheduled US stadium tour this summer, with shows starting June 16 in Atlanta, GA.
