During a recent chat with Germany’s Rockland Radio, Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott answered why the fans should listen to the band’s upcoming new album ”Diamond Star Halos”.
Here’s what Joe said:
“If you’re a Def Leppard fan, I would imagine there’s always a need to listen to some new music, because as much as it’s great to have this massive back catalog of music, new music is what keeps a band alive, so we wanna share that with our fans.
“Why would they wanna listen to it?” he continued.
“Well, I believe that this is a career-defining album. For a band that’s been around now for 45 years, to make an album that’s this strong, I believe, at this point of our career is actually quite an achievement. […]
“I believe that this album is a quantum leap. It’s not a rehash of ”Pyromania” or ”Hysteria” or any of our albums. It’s got all the flavors that DL have had in the past, but it’s got some new explorations that we’ve never done that I think our audience are ready for this journey. Because it’s 35 years since ”Hysteria” is released, it’s 39 since ”Pyromania” came out, and our audience are also older, like we are.” […]
