The Struts Team Up With Def Leppard for ‘I Hate How Much I Want You’!

October 7, 2020

Don’t you love it when rockers collaborate? This is cool. The Struts grabbed Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot and Phil Collen to guest on a new song called “I Hate How Much I Want You”.


In a statement, Struts singer Luke Spiller said the guys in Def Leppard make the song sound like “a timeless glam rock stomper that your mum sang along to in the Seventies.”

Def Leppard’s Phil Collen added, “I loved the sound of the Struts since the moment I first heard them so it gives me great pleasure that Luke and the boys asked myself and Joe to participate in some mutual, mischievous, explosive rowdiness.”

Said Leppard singer Elliott, “When Luke called me up and asked if I fancied lending my voice to the Struts’ new album I said yes before I even knew what he wanted. I’ve been a massive fan of the band since I first heard them so it’s not just a pleasure, it’s an honor to be part of this ‘born-in-Covid’ album, and what a song! Makes me feel like a kid again every time I hear it!”

You can hear “I Hate How Much I Want You” on The Struts’ next album, Strange Days, which arrives October 16th!

Great sound on this one. What are you listening on repeat lately?
