Def Leppard 2018. We All Need Christmas 2018

Def Leppard have today released a new single called We All Need Christmas ahead of their new best of album.

One of three new releases announced earlier today.

The Story So Far...The Best Of Def Leppard will be released on 30th November an the first single is out today.

'We All Need Christmas' is listed only as a bonus digital and seven inch single track on various editions of the album.

It has been released today to streaming and download services with a new promo video to follow soon.

Written by Rick Savage and produced by Ronan McHugh.

The (sort of) second Christmas song to be recorded by Def Leppard but the first to be released.

In the run up to the 2014 Slang Deluxe Edition album Vivian revealed Vivian said the band had recorded a song called 'Heavy Metal Christmas' in late 1995.

This turned out to be the music from 'All On Your Touch' which had new lyrics written and recorded by Joe in 2012.

The joke 'Christmas' song actually had no lyrics at first and wasn't really a Christmas song at all.

Listen to the new song below which can also be purchased digitally.

A physical version will be available as part of a bonus 7" disc with the 2LP vinyl edition of the album.

Once again the new releases are being put out by Virgin EMI Records.

News Quote

"Stay on the lookout for the music video’s debut soon."

Vivian Campbell - December 2011 Facebook Quote

"We did once record a song called "Heavy Metal Christmas" during the Slang sessions - tongues very firmly in cheeks! It was actually a proper (and rather good!) song but was lacking lyrics - hence the goof-off title. It'll likely see the light of day when we re-release Slang soon."
