The new album “Drastic Symphonies” will have Def Leppard’s biggest songs deconstructed and rebuilt with the collab of the majestic Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Due for release on May 19, the album represents a bold new approach to the band’s most loved songs.
Drastic Symphonies also includes new vocals and guitars to create epic new symphonic arrangements. At different stages of the record, listeners will hear front man Joe Elliott belting out a duet with his younger self. Very cool and “animalistic”!
Joe Elliott said “Although we’re far from the first band to ever do this, working directly with an orchestra at Abbey Road on some of our more orchestrated songs seemed too good of an opportunity to pass up.” The first track from the project, “Animal,” is available now.
