Def Leppard have released the track Dangerous from their upcoming self-titled album.
Guitarist Phil Collen tells Billboard: “Dangerous is a few years old and was initially titled Dangerous Drug until Joe Elliott suggested shortening the name. I started it a few years ago; I think I had just been working with producer Mutt Lange on something.
“We copied it exactly. I redid the guitars, just a slightly different guitar sound. We didn’t change anything musically at all.”
The guitarist recently shared insight into his top five tunes from the follow-up to 2008’s Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.
In addition to its October 30 release, Def Leppard will also be available as a double-vinyl edition, while the regular CD will be released on November 27.
Def Leppard will launch the album with a UK tour in December with Whitesnake and Black Star Riders.
