Def Leppard Share Snippet Of New Song ‘Just Like 73’


Def Leppard have shared a snippet of their new single ‘Just Like ’73’.

The band shared this sneak peek of their single in the most unique way. Included in the post is a pair of phone numbers, one from the US, another in the UK.

These numbers allow fans in the US and UK access to a hotline, where they will hear a recorded message, followed by a little snippet of their hit: ‘Just Like ’73’.

The post also includes this caption from Def Leppard: “Light up the fuel. Just Like 73. Hotline Now Open”.

The band’s lead singer Joe Elliot can also be heard singing, what appears to be the pre-chorus: “A stardust religion, It’s the end of days / I ride through the crazy on electric phase / A universal lust, it’s so crazy cool / So turn on to me, it’s time to light up the fuel”.

Joe Elliott and a “drunken rampage”

‘Just Like ’73’ would mark Def Leppard’s first new music since their album Diamond Star Halos, which arrived in 2022.

However back in March, the band did confirm plans to release a live album  ‘One Night Only Live At The Leadmill Sheffield May 19 2023’, for Record Store Day. More on this here.

Last month, the band’s frontman Joe Elliott revealed that a “drunken rampage”, led to Def Leppard scoring a major hit, with ‘Photograph’ from their 1983 album ‘Pyromania’.

Pyromania sold over 10 million copies in the US, eventually going on to be certified diamond. Find out what Elliott had to say on this album here.
