Def Leppard to release “symphonic” album


PRESS RELEASE: Rock and classical royalty unite on brand new euphoric album Drastic Symphonies – Def Leppard’s greatest produced tracks dramatically reimagined and sounding larger and more exhilarating than ever before, teamed with London’s iconic The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and including new vocals and instrumental from the band, Drastic Symphonies is available May 19th on clear and standard 2LP, limited edition 2LP picture disc, 1CD/Blu-ray, 1CD and digital formats.

Drastic Symphonies is not only a reimagining of the band’s biggest tracks, but of those that have not yet enjoyed their full moment in the limelight. Produced with the original master tapes and alongside new arrangements for orchestra, the album includes new vocals and guitars to embellish the symphony – with Joe even duetting his original vocal takes.
