Def Leppard have today unveiled their Spotify Singles recording session. As part of the streaming platform’s coveted initiative, the multi-platinum rock legends performed the classic ‘Hysteria’ in addition to a brand-new cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’. You can hear both tracks below.
The band’s Spotify Singles session was recorded at the Spotify studio. The musicians preserve the provocative power of ‘Personal Jesus’, while imbuing their own signature style and spirit. A recording of the Depeche Mode song has preceded recent live shows. The supercharged ‘Hysteria’, meanwhile, notably serves as the title track from the band’s widely-acclaimed 1987 album of the same name, which garnered a Diamond certification from the RIAA and housed seven smash singles. The original version of the song also stands out as a fan favourite on Spotify.
Elsewhere in Def Leppard news, the group is in the midst of one of the year’s biggest U.S. tours, their co-headliner with Journey. The band will then take the tour global with dates in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland & the U.K.
