Sheer Sound / Gallo Record Company is proud to announce the release of Def Leppard’s brand new self-titled album in South Africa.
The album has already peaked at #1 on BILLBOARD’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ Chart and is currently still in the Top 10, ahead of Kurt Cobain (Montage of Heck Soundtrack), Fall Out Boy, Alabama Shakes and Disturbed !
From the instant hooks of album opener and first single “Let’s Go” to the bass groove of “Man Enough”, the anthemic “Sea Of Love” & “Dangerous” to the acoustic “Battle Of My Own”, to the beautiful album closer and future classic “Blind Faith”, this is timeless Def Leppard: fourteen tracks that will delight fans and win over a whole new generation alike.
Def Leppard have always known how to write hits, and this album is packed with them. The album was produced by Def Leppard, and longtime producer/engineer Ronan McHugh, and recorded at Joe’s Garage.
Joe Elliott remembers, “We got together to see what we had with maybe putting out a three track EP in mind. All of a sudden we had twelve songs on the go, and two more would come just a few weeks later. It‘s the first album we‘ve ever made with no deal in place & no one looking over our shoulders so the freedom was immense & I think you can hear it in the songs.”
