Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott was recently interviewed and spoke about the third Down 'n' Outz studio album.

He was speaking to Classic Rock Magazine for their January 2018 issue about the newly released Down 'n' Outz live DVD/2CD. Joe is included on the front cover.

'The Further Live Adventures Of...' was released on 1st December on 2CD/DVD and Blu-ray.

Joe talked about Down 'n' Outz bass players, the live DVD recording, their next studio album, songwriting, his highlights of 2017, Def Leppard's South American tour, archive releases and the 2018 world tour.

Joe says the third Down 'n' Outz studio album (with all original material) is not due to be released until September 2018.

With Def Leppard playing a full world tour through most of 2018, the next live shows by the band will not take place until at least 2019.

This third album was first started in September 2013 and the new music was mentioned in this April 2014 interview just as the second album was being released.

Joe now says that one cover song (not by Mott The Hoople) will also be included.

Classic Rock Magazine - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Third Down 'n' Outz Studio Album

(Covers on third album?) "It got discarded when I sat down at the piano and found myself channelling stuff. I was writing a song a day."

New original material?

"Yeah, but of such a style that it doesn't matter because they're right out of the 1970s. I've played the songs to the guys and they thought they were great. So we jumped ahead to the fourth record I'd been planning, which was always going to be selfpenned. I've got around seven or eight songs, and there will be one non-Mott cover."

Album Release?/Next Tour?

"It's not due until September 2018. The next Down 'n' Outz gigs will probably be in 2019."

Live DVD/CD Audio

"I was dying of pneumonia. And I'll be completely, brutally honest, this was filmed in Sheffield but it ain't recorded in Sheffield. Some of the music is cobbled together from various performances on that tour."
