DEF LEPPARD is working on their first album in seven years . . . and for the first time, this one will feature lead vocals from all five members.
And they decided to do it because . . . well, why not? They aren’t going to sell a million copies of the album no matter what’s on it, so they might as well do whatever they WANT to do.
Guitarist VIVIAN CAMPBELL says, quote, “We’ve never done that before . . . frankly, candidly, we could go year after year playing our hits. A record for us is kind of a loss leader. A new record is something we do for us.”
He adds, quote, “It’s diverse, but it all sounds like Def Leppard. It’s the best album we’ve made in 23 years.”
There’s still no title or release date for the album, although it’s expected out sometime later this year.
