Def Leppard Share Orchestral Version Of 'Hysteria'

Def Leppard recently shared an orchestral version of “Hysteria”, the second single off their upcoming Drastic Symphonies orchestral album.

The rebooted “Hysteria” follows Drastic Symphonies‘ lead single “Animal,” which the band released in March.

Drastic Symphonies, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, will be released on May 19. The 15-track Drastic Symphonies features Def Leppard’s greatest produced tracks dramatically reimagined and sounding larger and more exhilarating than ever before.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the album includes new vocals and instrumental from the band.

“Def Leppard has always enjoyed veering off the expected path – working with the likes of Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift & Alison Krauss for example,” said lead singer Joe Elliott. “So, when the offer to revisit some of our back catalogue with the Royal Philharmonic was presented to us, to a man we all jumped at it.”

He added, “Although we’re far from the first band to ever do this, working directly with an orchestra at Abbey Road on some of our more orchestrated songs seemed too good of an opportunity to pass up.”
