Def Leppard Reveal ‘Kick’ Single + New Album: Look + Listen

Def Leppard have announced their first album in seven years.

The legendary rockers Joe Elliott, Rick Allen, Vivian Campbell, Phil Collen and Rick Savage have been teasing their fans with a countdown timer on the band’s website, and now, the glam metal act have unveiled Diamond Star Halos, their 12th studio album.

The follow-up to their 2015 eponymous-titled LP, the British musicians also revealed ‘Kick,’ the anthem-ready single for their upcoming stadium tour with Motley Crue and special guests Poison and Joan Jett.

Frontman Joe Elliott has confirmed that Def Leppard will perform new music at their rescheduled shows, which were originally planned for 2020, but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, stating:

“Had we done that tour when we were supposed to, we’d have been doing the tour with no new music. “Now we’re doing it with a new album to promote, which puts a totally different slant on it. I think the fact we’re going out there refreshed and energized by new music that we can incorporate into the show, which we wouldn’t have been able to do in 2020, is going to make a huge difference in the way we present ourselves.”

The ‘Stadium Tour’ also marks Motley’s return after (their) confirmed plans to reunite following their ‘Final Tour’ in 2015. The trek kicks off on June 16 at Atlanta’s Truist Park and and concludes on September 9 in Las Vegas.

‘Diamond Star Halos’ will be released on May 27 and includes the following songs:

1. ‘Take What You Want’

2. ‘Kick’

3. ‘Fire It Up’

4. ‘This Guitar’ (featuring Alison Krauss)

5. ‘SOS Emergency’

6. ‘Liquid Dust’

7. ‘U Rok Mi’

8. ‘Goodbye For Good’

9. ‘All We Need’

10. ‘Open Your Eyes’

11. ‘Gimme a Kiss’

12. ‘Angels’

13. ‘Lifeless’ (featuring Alison Krauss)

14. ‘Unbreakable’
