THE ROCK LEGENDS HAVE SHARED THE SECOND SINGLE FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM ‘DIAMOND STAR HALOS’
Rock titans and kings of Sheffield Def Leppard have released a brand-new single Take What You Want. The track is the second song to be released from their forthcoming twelfth (!) studio album Diamond Star Halos. Rock fans can look forwards to listening to the whole album on May 27th.
Following the previously released track Kick, is new single Take What You Want. Opening in typical Def Leppard style, we are treated to a Sweet influenced, melodic guitar intro, before a pounding riff crashes the party! The track continues with Joe Elliot sounding back to his best, and this is most evident on the sing-a-long, anthemic chorus. Viv Campbell and Phil Collin trade blows in an epic guitar duelling solo, but the true highlight is during the outro, when we hear the band with the greatest backing vocals of all time, belt out some of the finest “Woah Oh Oh’s” in recent recorded memory.
The full album Diamond Star Halos is compromised of 15 tracks, and will be the first new studio release from the rock titans since their 2015 self-titled collection. There are also notable collaborations on the album, with singing sensation Alison Krauss appearing on two songs, and longtime David Bowie and Michael Tinholme pianist Mike Garson also appearing on two tracks.
Following the album’s release, Leppard will finally embark on their long-delayed US stadium tour, where they will be co-headlining alongside the recently reformed (in 2020) Motley Crue.
You can listen to Take What You Want right now, and pre-orders for Diamond Star Halos are available via the official Def Leppard website.
