DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT/GHOST's Spillways Added To BBC Radio 2 Playlist

Def Leppard 2023. Ghost/Joe Elliott 2023

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott features on the reworked Ghost single Spillways and it has now been added to the BBC Radio 2 playlist.

Joe appeared on a new version of their song 'Spillways' earlier this year.

The song and lyric video were both released on 26th January.

The single artwork features the familiar Def Leppard triangle in red/yellow with the Ghost logo over the top and the title written in Def Leppard pyrite font.

The original song was released in March 2022 on their fifth studio album 'Impera' and was also released as a single in July 2022.

'Spillways' has now been added to the BBC Radio 2 New Music Playlist.

It is currently listed as part of the A List for 18th to 24th March.

Def Leppard's 'Kick' single was also added to the same playlist exactly a year ago upon its release just as the 'Diamond Star Halos' album was announced.

Read some of Joe's quotes again from recent interviews where he mentioned writing/recording new music together and possibly appearing live on the song with Ghost at a festival if their schedules allow.

The Joe Elliott Show - 28th January 2023 Quotes

Show Intro

"This song that we're about to hear has been out for a while."

"But not this particular version. Featuring yours truly, this is Ghost."

Ghost Spillways

"So how did that collaboration come about I hear you ask."

"Well turns out that about probably 9 months ago now I was pointed towards an interview that Tobias had done saying he was a bit of a Def Leppard fan."

"And of course as you all know if you've been listening to my show regularly."

"That I am a fan of the band Ghost. And I guess we both heard about each other's mutual love for each other."

"And it just became a very organic get together. And he said would I like to sing on a re-recording of the song Spillways."

"In actual fact the backing track's the same, but I added my parts to it. And there you have it."

"And we had such fun just a couple of weeks ago doing a kind of a webisode I think he calls them. A mini video for the song which was shot in pretty much my local."

"At a place called the Blue Light in Dublin. And great fun was had. Always up for a bit of a laugh."

"And it was great to meet Tobias. A lovely guy and a great artist. And there is the re-recording, if you like, or the additional version of the song Spillways."
