DEF LEPPARD REVEAL TRACK LISTING AND COVER ART FOR NEW ALBUM
Def Leppard have revealed the track listing and album cover for their forthcoming self titled album tentatively scheduled for release on October 30th.
Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott explained the reasoning behind releasing a self-titled album at this point in the band’s career, saying, “It’s just called ‘Def Leppard’ because that’s what it sounds like. It doesn’t sounds like any one specific era of Def Leppard. It’s got everything.”
That “everything,” Elliott argued, includes bits of Def Leppard’s many influences. “You’ll listen and you go ‘Oh, that sounds like Def Leppard’ or you’ll go ‘That is Leppard, but sounds a bit like Led Zeppelin or Queen but you can hear the AC/DC or the Crosby, Stills and Nash coming through,” he predicted. “We have not shied away from anything that’s influenced us in our growing up periods of our life. Just because we’ve made the kind of music we’ve made doesn’t mean to say we don’t like all of this other stuff.”

On Through The Night
High N’ Dry
And Hysteria, Euphoria and 1 song off of adrenalize
Every one of those song titles has been used already, maybe it’s just a coincidence? It’s got to be hard here in 2015 to come up with any kind of song title that hasn’t already been used before. I just hope DL went back to their roots like the Scorpions did on “Return To Forever,” and sound like DL again, unlike the last couple of albums.
I just listened to “Let’s Go” for the first time, good song! Yes it sounds like “Sugar,” and that’s a good thing. DL sounds like DL again! 🙂
The first two Def Leppard albums are my favorites. After High N’ Dry, it lost it’s hard rock edge, to me. I prefer Ded Flatbird. :o)
Actually, after Screaming For Vengeance, Pyromania is probably my second favorite album, but to each their own. However, High N’Dry is definitely up there, as well.
Even if you don’t like the direction, Hysteria is a classic record, start to finish, and even better if you include the b-sides.
Let’s go sounds just like pour some sugar on me with different lyrics!
