Rock mainstays Def Leppard have dropped the latest video from their album Def Leppard, and it’s a funky affair!
“Man Enough” eschews the band’s glossy pop-metal production sheen for a bass-heavy groove that would be comfortable alongside classic funk rockers of the 70s. It’s a welcome new direction, not that the band needed one. In the years since Pyromania and Hysteria, the UK quintet has enjoyed the long legs of a very successful touring career.
The first two singles – “Let’s Go” and “Dangerous” are very much cut from the mold of classic Leppard tunes – not that that’s a bad thing! But “Man Enough” reveals a different side. Guitarist Phil Collen referred to the album as “probably the most diverse thing we’ve done” as well as “more liberating and expressive.”
Welcome back, guys.
