Alison Krauss will feature on the upcoming Def Leppard album ‘Diamond Star Halos’.
It has emerged that the Bluegrass Country singer has record two tracks for the band’s latest album, which will arrive on 27 May.
Alison Krauss is a 27 time winning Grammy Award winner. Five of these awards came from her 2009 collaboration with Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant for the album ‘Raising Sand’. The duo also released the album ‘Raise The Roof’ last year.
Def Leppard have already released their first track from the new album ‘Kick’. Check it out below.
The record ‘Diamond Star Halos’ is also the first new Def Leppard album since they released their self titled ‘Def Leppard’ back in 2015.
The band still includes the original band members Rick Savage, Joe Elliot, Rick Allen, along with Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell who joined Def Leppard in 1982 and 1992 respectively.
Along with the contribution of Alison Krauss, the album will also features long time David Bowie collaborator Mike Garson. The pianist performs on the tracks ‘Angels (Can’t Help You Now)’ and ‘Goodbye For Good This Time’.
