Def Leppard's new album, guess who?

DEF LEPPARD To Reunite With MUTT LANGE On New Album - June 21, 2007

According to The Def Leppard Satellite Of Love, DEF LEPPARD will reunite with producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange after the tour is over to write a few songs for the new album, "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge", it was revealed on the June 20 edition of "Rockline".

"He's very enthusiastic actually," bassist Rick Savage told the listeners of "Rockline". "He's just heard a few ideas that we had knocking around and he really wants to do a couple things with us, which is great after all this time that we've known him for him to still dig what we're doing and there still that chemistry there for future songs."

The collaboration would be the first between the band and Mutt Lange since 1999's "Euphoria" album.

According to Billboard.com, DEF LEPPARD is "about 85, 90 percent finished" with its next CD, which frontman Joe Elliott describes as "a very rock album."

"I'm not gonna say it's radically different to anything we've ever done," Elliott told Billboard.com. "There's classic DEF LEPPARD. There's stuff that sounds like it's going back to the middle, late-'70s AC/DC and new wave-type sounding stuff. There's definitely some moments on it where anybody that's familiar with our music will go, 'Whoa! I wasn't expecting that!' We've just been very adventurous, musically, on certain numbers."

Elliott said the "Sparkle Lounge" album title refers to a room the group maintained backstage during its 2006 tour dates, where the musicians would congregate with co-producer and live sound technician Ronan McHugh to work up and record ideas.

Ok, so Mutt will be working with Def Leppard after "The Sparkle Lounge" CD comes out? Is that right? So it'll probably be after the work on Shania's album is finished. It would make sense. Shania and Def Leppard do have the same management.

This is awesome! It'll be like the old days. Something to look forward to; a new Shania CD and a new Def Leppard/Mutt Lange CD. The next couple of years are gonna be great!

Just writing a couple of songs on TSL might not be enough... the few highlight songs Mutt did with The Corrs on their 'In Blue' album made that album feel somewhat patchy IMO... and I'd really prefer Mutt to produce the whole album... we shall see...

The Corrs wrote some excellent songs for their first couple of albums. Perhaps they were struggling for inspiration by the time "In Blue" came around.

Well, if we didn't know before that there would be no Shania this year, now we do, although I'm happy Mutt is doing this. We'll have lots of stuff to listen to before too long now.

We all know how much time Mutt likes to spend in the studio with the production phase of an album. I don't think producing a few songs with Def Leppard will make much of a difference time wise in delaying the production of Shania's new album. We shall see.

I think if it was the whole album, that would be a different story.
