The eleventh full-length studio album by legendary British Melodic Alternative/Hard Rock band.
Def Leppard's first studio album since "Songs From The Sparkle Lounge" (2008) (marking the longest gap between two studio albums in their career) and their first on earMUSIC Records, it became their seventh top ten album after debuting on the Billboard 200 at number 10.
Embracing their fresh burst of creativity and armed with a stockpile of new songs, Leppard repaired to Elliott’s Dublin studio, Joe’s Garage, with long-time sound engineer/producer Ronan McHugh. In familiar surroundings, the band was in an ideal situation to do what they do best – and were determined not to be shackled by expectations. They decided to call the album “Def Leppard” “because it doesn’t sound like any one specific era” of their music.
The satisfyingly disparate Def Leppard once again showed Joe Elliott and company were true to their word. Kicking off in vintage form with the irresistible swagger of the "Hysteria"-esque “Let’s Go”, the album went on to absorb everything from the crunching NWOBHM-style anthem “All Time High” to barnstorming Alt-Rock workouts such as “Sea Of Love” and the chest-beating “Wings Of An Angel”, which recalled the band’s mid-90s "Slang" era. Yet the experimentation didn’t end there. The proudly eclectic Def Leppard also found space for exciting departures, including the atypically Funky “Man Enough”, the cool, beats and Electronica-driven Pop of “Energized” and the ambitious “Blind Faith”.
The album shot to No.10 on the Billboard 200 and to No.11 on the UK Top 40. “Def Leppard” also won a 2016 Classic Rock Roll of Honours Award for Album of the Year.
Def Leppard’s self-titled album gave its creators a mighty shot in the arm, and the indefatigable Hard Rockers have been on a high ever since!
