Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has been interviewed by The Nervous Breakdown and revealed a recent songwriting session with producer Mutt Lange.

Phil told the magazine that he worked on a song with Mutt without saying who or what it was for. Various band members had said they worked on a few songs with Mutt prior to the release of the 2008 studio album 'Songs From The Sparkle Lounge'. None of which were used.

The Nervous Breakdown - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"It would be really nice if we had some new music out. We're so slow at doing stuff. That's just part of our thing. People used to blame it on Mutt Lange, but that's not it at all. He's done about four albums in the time it takes us to do three songs. You know what I mean? So we can't really use that excuse anymore. (laughing) He's fantastic. I actually saw him recently and we played together and worked together on a song, and it was killer. But I think that for Def Leppard, it would be really nice if we got some new music out. We're painfully slow. We have issues. We love each other - it's not that - but we're in different parts of the world and for some reason, it takes us a long time. It's weird."
