Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has said the band plan to record a new album in 2013 during an interview with MusicRadar.

Phil talked about his 30 years in the band, recording the 'Pyromania' album, Rick Allen's accident, the 'Rock Of Ages' movie, the possibility of Tom Cruise joining them on stage, covers of Def Leppard songs, the Bret Michaels/Oedipus collaborations and his home recording techniques.

He then talks about the new 2012 tour, plans to release a couple of new songs this summer and a full album in 2013.

Any plans for the next Def Leppard record?

"Recording, yes, but it'll probably be a Def Leppard song or two. We're going to go on tour this summer, so we're going to try to have a new song together. Coming up with material shouldn't be a problem - I wrote two new songs this week."

"A whole album won't happen this year, I can be pretty sure on that. There's so much involved with putting a record together, and the demographics for the people who buy albums is shrinking. We'll do a record next year, but it would be cool if we could do it differently. I'd love to do what we did with the Man Raze album, recording the entire thing in two weeks."
