2CD Slang Deluxe Edition Release Delayed

Thursday, 15th August 2013

Slang 1996.

Vivian Campbell has said the Def Leppard Slang Deluxe Edition may well be delayed calling into question the recent Amazon listing for late August.

Vivian responded to another question about the album yesterday and said it is likely to be delayed - possibly until after the late October release of the VIVA! Hysteria 2CD/DVD/Blu-ray. However it may well be worth the wait (understatement).

HMV Japan have listed the album as a US import along with some very exciting details. The version listed includes the original album, 5 B-Sides and a bonus second disc featuring no less than 14 previously unreleased versions, mixes and new songs.

The new songs are listed as Raise Your Love, Black Train, Anger (early version of Deliver Me), Move On Up (a Vivian demo) and All On Your Touch (2012 Revisit) - which may well be this song. Full details of the release have yet to be announced and this tracklisting may change given the delay (30 tracks in all!).

Follow this link to see the tracklisting (while it's still there).

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

Any word on the Slang reissue??

"Yes, but it's bad news, I'm afraid... - unfortunately we missed our original release date of last Christmas and now we're about to release the Viva Hysteria stuff, so it'll be pushed back so as not to impinge upon that."
