DEF LEPPARD Announce New Releases Including The Story So Far Collection, Hysteria - The Singles Vinyl Box Set; New Christmas Single Streaming

Closing out a banner 2018, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame nominees Def Leppard reveal a string of upcoming releases.

The group assemble a brand new greatest hits collection entitled The Story So Far - The Best Of, arriving in stores and online November 30th. It will be available in multiple configurations: a 2-CD set comprised of 35 tracks, 1-CD comprised of 17 tracks, 2LP vinyl, and digital.

Among a blockbuster tracklisting loaded with timeless smashes, all four versions feature three new songs, including the official recording of the band’s recent fan favorite Depeche Mode cover “Personal Jesus,” “Rock On (Remix),” and the original holiday song “We All Need Christmas.” As a bonus for collectors, the first pressing vinyl copies of The Story So Far feature an exclusive 7” single of “Personal Jesus” and “We All Need Christmas.” See full tacklisting below.

The pre-order just went live today, and it unlocks an instant grat download of “Personal Jesus.” Rolling Stone claimed it “features a little more of the group’s signature giant vocals…and to great effect.” Essential for newcomers and longtime fans alike, The Story So Far plays out like the ultimate Def Leppard set upheld by stadium-size hits.
