Billboard - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

2015 Studio Album

"It's very varied," Elliott says. "It sounds like Def Leppard, but it sounds like Def Leppard stretching their wings a little bit. There are a couple of songs tied to our DNA, instantly recognizable as us, and some of the stuff that's not so much like that and represents who we are now, a band that's in their early- to mid-50s, the kind of music they should be making without it sounding old and farty. We're not trying to write 24-hour party songs at our age; that would be silly."

Band getting - "an unprecedented amount of offers from various different people to release this record, which we weren't expecting and has changed the whole dynamic of how we want to put this record out." Elliott says Def Leppard is still "weeding through" the offers but is confidently the album will be out "absolutely this year."
