One of my favorite albums is Metallica’s S&M where they performed with the San Francisco Symphony. I absolutely LOVE when two genres of music come together to form something new.

It sounds like Def Leppard agrees with that sentiment!

Released today is the album Drastic Symphonies. It’s album that DF recorded at Abbey Road featuring the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

This is their 13th album.  They teamed up with the orchestra to reimagine hits like “Hysteria” and “Love Bites” with a classical twist.  The album featuring new vocal and guitar recordings and fresh arrangements using previously recorded audio as well. Singer Joe Elliott even got to duet with his younger self by mixing new vocals with original audio.
