Def Leppard Announces a New, Self-Titled, Album for October 30

by Music-News.com Newsdesk

Def Leppard are pleased to announce the release of a new studio album, Def Leppard, on October 30.

Def Leppard is the bands eleventh studio album, the first since 2008's Songs From the Sparkle Lounge.

From the instant hooks of album opener and first single Let's Go to the bass groove of Man Enough, from the anthemic Sea Of Love to the beautiful album closer and future classic Blind Faith, from the instant hit of Dangerous to the acoustic Battle Of My Own, this is timeless Def Leppard: fourteen tracks that will delight fans and win over a whole new generation alike.

Def Leppard have always known how to write hits, and this album is packed with them. The album was produced by Def Leppard, and longtime producer/engineer Ronan McHugh and recorded at Joe's Garage.

Joe Elliott says, "We got together to see what we had with maybe putting out a three track EP in mind. All of a sudden we had twelve songs on the go, and two more would come just a few weeks later. It's the first album we've ever made with no deal in place & no one looking over our shoulders so the freedom was immense & I think you can hear it in the songs."

The track list:

  • Let's Go
  • Dangerous
  • Man Enough
  • We Belong

  • Invincible

  • Sea Of Love

  • Energized

  • All Time High

  • Battle Of My Own
