Def Leppard have launched a video for their single Let’s Go.
Joe Elliott tells Rolling Stone: “It has that swaggering, mid-tempo rhythm, like Pour Some Sugar On Me and Rock Of Ages. The idea was, we wanted something familiar. When AC/DC comes back after years away, you’re not going to get Bohemian Rhapsody from them. And you don’t want it, either — you want Back In Black, or something like it. For us, this is what we do. And it’s something we enjoy doing.
“It’s a call to arms. Rick Savage wrote 80% of the song. I wrote the verses, he wrote all the music and the choruses. He came in with it, and we knew it was a classic Def Leppard song.”
The group also issued a second track, Dangerous, ahead of the project’s release.
The Sheffield outfit are launching the album next month with four shows in Japan, dates in Australia and Singapore, and a UK tour with Whitesnake and Black Star Riders in December.
