DEF LEPPARD new album! Yes, this is what fans have been waiting for.
In a new interview with Mitch Lafon, DEF LEPPARD axeman Vivian Campbell talks about the upcoming record, saying:
“There’s always songs in the go. Everyone in the band is songwriter, you know, we all have these little ideas in our back pockets. It’s all a question of making a collective effort to get together and actually start recording something.
“There’s been rumors of maybe addressing that sometime in 2020 – I don’t know if it’ll be an album, I doubt it – but I think probably what will happen, we’ll go into the studio and we’ll just try to focus on two, three or four ideas and see what comes out of it.
“The last time we did that it ended up being an album, which was the eponymous Def Leppard album in 2015. We got to keep exercising that muscle, you know, as creative beings and as a creative unit, we have to keep doing that, even if it’s essentially just an excuse to go on tour because, ‘Hey, we’ve got a new album.’
“It’s important for us as musicians that we keep doing that, and there’s a certain percentage of Leppard’s fan base that really is hungry for new music, you know, so then there’s a whole other generation of people who are just discovering Def Leppard for the first time and coming to our shows.”
