Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has given a strong hint that the fabled Slang Deluxe Edition will finally be released in 2014.

Phil posted a message on facebook on 2nd January indicating a likely release this year. Vivian later made a comment himself in response to a fan question.

The album was listed for 27th January release in October 2013 by Amazon UK. It had been listed on Amazon US for a 27th August release. It was then delayed and labelled as "Out Of Stock" but has now reappeared on the UK site with a new release date of 27th January 2014.

More details of the reissue emerged in August 2013. It will include 5 B-Sides plus a bonus second disc featuring no less than 14 previously unreleased versions, mixes and new songs.

All previous updates on this release and new music can be found in the Album News section.

Slang Deluxe Edition?

"Afraid that I know nothing more than the information generally available, Ty. I could ask one of the grown-ups I suppose."
