Next Def Leppard Album

"Already started the new album actually. I started it last year. I know Joe and Sav have got new songs, you know, I started writing this pretty awesome song and I already passed it on to Joe and Sav. Yeah so that's really how we do it and we'll do a song at a time."

"Pretty much like how we did the Tesla album. You know we actually, instead of going OK we're gonna carve out X amount of months and sit in the studio, you actually start today."

"You know you start it on your laptop or your phone. You collect the ideas and all of that stuff and before you know it you've got a finished song and before you know it you've got two finished songs. It's kind of what we did on the last Def Leppard album. You know we had a writing period. We thought we was gonna get like one and before we knew it we had twelve songs in no time at all. And it was like oh my god I guess we better do an album. So I think that that's really exciting and so instead of carving time out for that, you know, we've already started the next album. So for sure they'll be something at some point."
