Def Leppard 2020. The Struts 2020

Def Leppard members Joe Elliott and Phil Collen have contributed to The Struts new album Strange Days which is due out in October.

The Struts will release their third studio album 'Strange Days' on Friday 16th October.

Joe Elliott and Phil Collen have been listed as special guests on track 4 - 'I Hate How Much I Want You'.

Joe revealed the collaboration during the 16th May 2020 edition of his Planet Rock radio show without going into too much detail.

His comments at the time suggest the collaboration was set up at the time of the phone call mentioned on the show.

He has played the band many times on the show and hailed them as his favourite new rock band of the last few years.

Joe and Phil are not the only high profile contributors to the album.

Ex-Take That singer Robbie Williams guests on track 1, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine is a guest of track 5.

Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes also features on their current single 'Another Hit Of Showmanship'.

Joe's second new release of 2020 after the collaboration with SIXX A.M. which came out last week.

The Struts explained in a press statement that the album was recorded in only ten days.

Track 3 is a KISS cover and a song which Phil Collen also covered with his band Girl in the early 1980s (search for the video on YouTube).

The Joe Elliott Show - 16th May 2020 Quote

The Struts

"Had a great chat with Luke Spiller this week. We spent about an hour on the phone talking about this that and the other. Which will remain between the two of us for now. However it was quite exciting I have to say. There his band The Struts from the album Young And Dangerous with a great bit of work called Primadonna Like Me."

The Struts - Press Release Quote

“Finding all of our plans for 2020 canceled or postponed, we gathered together safely in the studio and wrote and recorded the entire album in just ten days. It was undoubtedly a magical ten days for us—and we hope when you hear the album, it gives you a taste of that magic too.”
