Def Leppard is the latest band to record a two-song "Spotify Single" for the streaming service. Leppard tackled its own 1987 classic "Hysteria" as the A-side, with a unique selection for the "flip" -- "Personal Jesus" by Depeche Mode. Ultimate Classic Rock reported, "Spotify Singles were launched in late-2016, with artists venturing to Spotify Studios in New York City to record two songs per session: a new recording of an original track and a cover version of another artist’s work."

Def Leppard's lead singer Joe Elliott told us that new bands starting out today wouldn't be allowed to make money touring and growing their audience over the course of four or five albums, because record companies are so demanding and give new bands a raw deal: "Contracts nowadays, record labels, what's left of 'em, are trying to actually get parts of a band's merchandise when they tour. It's like, how dare you! It's two separate things! Y'know, I just can't see Roger Waters willingly giving up 20 percent of his T-shirts. Luckily we aren't in that kind of bag. I just feel bad for the new bands. I mean, there's the odd artist that can sell records these days. But most people, if they don't have a second record make profit, they don't make a third record."
