100.3 Jack FM - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

2015 Studio Album

"We've actually been recording. We're doing a new Def Leppard record which actually started off as a project. We thought we'd like do a couple of songs or an EP or something, and it turned into a 15 song kind of marathon. So we're actually gonna get that out for next year. So we're really excited about that as well."

"It's very diverse. It's the first album you know where we've had no real interference from labels or A&R men or anything. So it's a record that we just wanna do ourselves. We're really psyched about it. It's very exciting, very cool and kind of energetic kind of album."
