Sheer Sound / Gallo Record Company is proud to announce the release of Def Leppard’s brand new self-titled album in South Africa.
“Def Leppard” is the band’s eleventh studio album – the first since 2008’s “Songs From the Sparkle Lounge”.
The album has already peaked at #1 on BILLBOARD’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ Chart and is currently still in the Top 10, ahead of Kurt Cobain (Montage of Heck Soundtrack), Fall Out Boy, Alabama Shakes and Disturbed!
From the instant hooks of album opener and first single “Let’s Go” to the bass groove of “Man Enough”, the anthemic “Sea Of Love” & “Dangerous” to the acoustic “Battle Of My Own”, to the beautiful album closer and future classic “Blind Faith”, this is timeless Def Leppard: fourteen tracks that will delight fans and win over a whole new generation alike.
Def Leppard have always known how to write hits, and this album is packed with them. The album was produced by Def Leppard, and longtime producer/engineer Ronan McHugh, and recorded at Joe’s Garage.
Joe Elliott remembers, “We got together to see what we had with maybe putting out a three track EP in mind. All of a sudden we had twelve songs on the go, and two more would come just a few weeks later. It‘s the first album we‘ve ever made with no deal in place & no one looking over our shoulders so the freedom was immense & I think you can hear it in the songs.”
