Joe Elliott Says New Def Leppard Single Out Next Month

We all know that Def Leppard have been hard at work on their new album and that it’s slated for release in October, but it looks like we’ll be getting our first taste of new music very soon.

Joe Elliott recently did an interview with The Grand Forks Herald, and he said the first single “is going to go to radio next month” and that fans can expect album-wise “a 14-track, 55-minute album.”

As for the album’s title, the band is simply going with Def Leppard, because, “You'll listen and you go ‘Oh, that sounds like Def Leppard.’”

Why over complicate things, amiright?
