Def Leppard are celebrating the release of their new long-awaited self-titled album today (October 30th) with the premiere of the music video for the single track “Let’s Go”.
Frontman Joe Elliott had previously discussed the track with Rolling Stone. He told the publication, “It has that swaggering, mid-tempo rhythm, like ‘[Pour Some] Sugar [on Me]’ and ‘Rock of Ages’.
“The idea was, we wanted something familiar. I mean, when AC/DC comes back after years away, you’re not going to get ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ from ’em, you know? And you don’t want it, either. You want ‘Back in Black,’ or something like it. For us, this is what we do. And it’s something we enjoy doing.”
The band released a preview of the “Let Go” video on Thursday with the full clip being released on their YouTube channel at some point today.
