DEF LEPPARD To Release New Album & New Single

Legendary U.K. rockers DEF LEPPARD have announced they will be releasing a new single this Thursday (March 17) on BBC RADIO 2's "Zoe Ball Breakfast Show". The new track is to be a part of the band's new album, 'Diamond Star Halos' to be released in the near future. The band has also opened a brand new website which features a countdown clock which set to hit zero at 5 a.m. ET on Thursday, March 17th, 2022.

In 2021 Joe Elliott told that the band had been trading ideas virtually during the pandemic and are "ahead of the game".

Earlier last year (2021) Elliott said to Download: "I'm aware of the fact that when you've got a history — whether it be THE EAGLES or FLEETWOOD MAC or any of the bands from the '80s, like us and [IRON] MAIDEN and whoever else, we've got this legacy audience as well that wanna see us continue the journey, if you like," he continued. "And that's become way more important.

"When we finished that [2015] album, we never really thought about making another record until we just felt the timing was right," Elliott explained. "And we always just fall into place. We're constantly writing songs, so when it comes to piecing songs together, it's not like they're all absolutely brand spanking new, just written, hot-off-the-press stuff. Some of them are ideas that have been percolating for a year or two with a piece missing. And you wait and you wait and you wait, and then you have this epiphany, or one of the other guys goes, 'Why didn't you ask? I've got a bit that would fit in there perfect.' So there's been a lot of that going on. But that's a constant; that's nothing to do with coronavirus. We've been doing it since the 'Def Leppard' album came out, and we will continue to do it, whether we release an album or not. We've got songs in our heads."
