DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT Reveals New Cover Song To Feature In Upcoming Advert

Def Leppard 2022. Def Leppard 2022

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has revealed a new cover song has been recorded and will be released via an advert.

'Diamond Star Halos' is the band's 12th studio album.

The album was announced on 17th March and was released on Friday 27th May 2022.

Joe revealed news of a new cover version while speaking backstage on 14th August in Minneapolis, MN.

He had recorded his lead vocal for the unnamed song by a "specific" band earlier that day and noted he doesn't ever record vocals on show days.

He did not reveal the "specific" artist or indeed the "specific" song but it will feature in an upcoming advert.

A full release of the song is also possible.

Earlier in the new Behind The Scenes video Joe also cheekily referenced the David Bowie Heroes cover the band have recorded as it played on the PA behind him.

This cover may also be part of another upcoming project.

The fact Joe is seen wearing a Rolling Stones T-Shirt with Keith Richards' face on it is probably not a hint to the band in question (probably).

New Music

The song released as part of as advert and/or a full release will be their first new music since May when 'Diamond Star Halos' was released.

Technically of course 'Heroes' has been sort of released by it's playing on the PA before each show of The Stadium Tour so far.

But as yet there are no announcements of any release for the studio version unlike 'Personal Jesus' in 2018 which was released on Spotify within a month or two of it's debut at shows.
