RICK SAVAGE Says DEF LEPPARD To Release Single FT. Tom Morello Guitar Solo

Def Leppard 2024. Def Leppard 2024

Def Leppard bassist Rick Savage has said the band will release a new single featuring Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello.

Sav returned to Instagram recently with two posts that teased new music.

And now he has revealed more during a band interview promoting the new 'Pyromania 40' box set.

New Def Leppard Single w/ Tom Morello

Sav has now told the Stereogum site that the band have finished mastering a new single.

He also says the new one-off single release will feature a guest guitar solo from Tom Morello.

Tom is of course best known as the guitarist for Rage Against The Machine and according to Sav a huge fan of the 'High 'n' Dry' album.

Sav talked of new music in his two recent Instagram posts in the last week or so.

Vivian Campbell Hint

Vivian may have given a clue to this news in his own Instagram post when he mentioned "Guerrilla" style recording.

A likely reference to the 1999 Rage Against The Machine single 'Guerrilla Radio' taken from their third album 'The Battle Of Los Angeles'.

Rick Allen Meeting 2022

In July 2022 Rick Allen met Tom at a hotel when the band played in St. Louis, MO on The Stadium Tour and posted a photo of them together on Instagram (see below).

Pyromania Album/Career Highlights

The rest of the lengthy interview deals with the #Pyromania# album recording.

Plus a look back at the band's many career highlights including the first show in 1978 and the 3 Continents 1 One Day event.

This interview was likely conducted a couple of weeks ago when the band were in the UK to film scenes for 'Bank Of Dave 2'.

"This is hot off the press, but we have just mastered a one-off single."

"And playing on it is Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine, who was a huge fan back in the day when he was growing up."

"High ‘n’ Dry was like his Bible. He’s playing a solo on our new single, it’s going to be out there pretty soon."

"That’s just another example - you keep passing the baton around, and it’s fantastic."
