Regarding their lead off single “Let’s Go”, Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott told RollingStone.com: “It’s a call to arms, you know? Rick Savage [bass] wrote 80 percent of the song. I wrote the verses, he wrote all the music and the choruses. He came in with it, and we knew it was a classic Def Leppard song. It’s that three-minute pop-rock stuff with big chunky guitars and a big chorus. And it has that swaggering, mid-tempo rhythm, like ‘Sugar’, and ‘Rock Of Ages’. The idea was, we wanted something familiar. I mean, when AC/DC comes back after years away, you’re not going to get ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ from ’em, you know? And you don’t want it, either — you want ‘Back In Black’, or something like it. For us, this is what we do. And it’s something we enjoy doing.”

The new album is the band’s first since “Songs From the Sparkle Lounge” in 2008.
