From Def Leppard.com:
Songs From The Sparkle Lounge release date and U.K. competiton
With March 27 being the start date of the band’s World Tour to support their upcoming album SONGS FROM THE SPARKLE LOUNGE, many of you have been wondering if the album will actually be released before the kickoff show. We can hereby tell you that as of today, the album is scheduled for release on MARCH 17 in the UK and MARCH 18 in the rest of the world. That’s right — in about two months the band’s new album might be in the shops! Please note this is a TENTATIVE date and therefore may change.
Furthermore, the first single off the album will be called “NINE LIVES” and will feature a guest appearance by country star TIM MCGRAW.
