Joe Elliott of Def Leppard is talking about the group’s 25th anniversary album with the release of ‘X’ on July 30. Elliott addressed the fact that Swedish producers Andreas Carlsson and Per Aldeheim will contribute work on the disc, whose credits include Britney Spears and *NSYNC. Elliott explained, “Although that may sound strange to a lot of you out there; Mutt (former Leppard producer Mutt Lange) has worked with Britney Spears, and people still ask us why we don’t work with him. These guys worked with Celine Dion, Britney Spears, N’Sync, Backstreet Boys, but … They are the biggest Dio fans on the planet! Big rockheads! And so, we got this message that they wanted to do a song with us, so we accepted that. As much as Andreas and Per work in the pop field, they’re huge rock fans, which is only a good thing.”
