oe Elliott of DEF LEPPARD has acknowledged to Download festival host Kylie Olsson that he and his bandmates have been working on new music during the coronavirus hiatus. “I can’t deny that we have composed some songs remotely as an experiment to test if we could, and I can declare that it was really successful,” he remarked (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “What are our plans for those songs?
Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott claims the band has created several new songs during the pandemic
JThat will have to wait and see. We’ll have to wait and see because everyone is on other continents, in different cities, and all sorts of things. So there’s a lot of work ahead of us before we can release a final product. But we haven’t squandered the year.” “The industry being what it is, we’re all aware of the fact that there’s an aspect of the media that can’t let go of the concept that albums aren’t that essential anymore,” Joe remarked, referring to DEF LEPPARD’s last studio album, 2015’s self-titled effort. And I realise it’s a sombre statement, but it’s the truth. Touring is hugely crucial now, much more so than it was when you were promoting important recordings. Particularly for “legacy” bands, or whatever you want to call them. Listen, in 1989, I went to see THE ROLLING STONES in case one of them passed away. It’s the year 1989. Since the 1960s, they haven’t had a death. “I’m aware that when you have a history, whether it’s THE EAGLES or FLEETWOOD MAC or any of the bands from the 1980s, like us and [IRON] MAIDEN and whomever else, you have a legacy audience who want to see you continue the journey.
And it’s gotten a lot more crucial.” ” We never really considered doing another record after finishing that  album until we felt the time was perfect “Elliott clarified. “And we always seem to fall into place by ourselves. We’re continuously writing songs, so it’s not like they’re all brand new, just written, hot-off-the-press material when it comes to sewing songs together. Some of them are concepts that have been brewing for a year or two but are missing a key component. And you wait and wait and wait until you either get an insight or one of the other guys says, ‘Why didn’t you ask?’ I have a piece that would be wonderful in there.’ As a result, there’s been a lot of that. That, however, is a constant and has nothing to do with coronavirus. We’ve been doing it since the release of the ‘Def Leppard’ record, and we’ll keep doing it whether or not we make an album. We have tunes stuck in our minds.”
