Guitar International - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

2015 Def Leppard Studio Album

"But, we've filled them up with songs that will be in the album. We'll probably pick 12 from 16 or something like that. But we've got 12, and I'm going to be working on one of them this evening."

"The vocals get done last, so I'll be singing up to and beyond Christmas. I'm hoping, fingers crossed, but I am making this up as I go along, so bear that in mind that we can actually deliver the CD by February 2015."

"On these new recordings, they're all very much guitar-based, rock and roll songs - almost punk. Some of the stuff is Beatlesque with mellotron. We're all over the place. It's not unfocused; itís not a collection of songs that all sound the same. It's very, very wide cinemascope when it comes to the kind of tunes that we've written. There really is a bit of everything."
