Singer Joe Elliott talked to Cleveland.com saying Def Leppard is working on new songs for the new album.
More, he and his bandmates have been trading ideas virtually during the pandemic and are “ahead of the game” with respect to the new album progress.
“Y’know, we’ve always said that what we’ve got to try and achieve before we kick it all in the head or we’re gone is to be bracketed among the greats: Lennon–McCartney, Jagger–Richards, Ray Davies, Pete Townshend. We probably never will, but we’re never gonna stop trying.
”We’re not interested in trying to be some second division, ‘Oh, that’ll do kind of thing.’ It’s like if somebody fails climbing Mount Everest, if they’re that desperate then they’ll try again next year. That’s how we feel about what we do, so we’re just gonna try our best, again, and keep going for it.”
