[lastfm]Def Leppard [/lastfm]has announced that they will release their first-ever full-length live album.
The band, who last scored a top-five album with 2008’s Songs From The Sparkle Lounge, has revealed that the new disc will contain recordings from last year’s tour.
“There’ll be stuff from this century on it — ‘Rock On,’ ‘Nine Lives,’ ‘Come On Come On’,” singer [lastfm]Joe Elliott [/lastfm]said in a statement.
Elliott also added that the band is considering putting together additional material for the release.
“I think initially we’re going to put out a coffee table book . . . that covers all aspects of our career, from On Through the Night through last year, with commentary from the band and the photographer and maybe a few celebrities and fans.”
No release date, tracklisting or title for the album has been confirmed.
The band is currently taking a break from touring and working on new material, including tracks for an EP of new songs to be released with the live album.
