Def Leppard recently released a new single, “Just Like 73,” featuring Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello.

The song arrives on 7-inch vinyl on August 2 and will be available in a special color variant only through the band’s D2C store and in black at all retailers.

“Just Like 73” marks the first collaboration between Def Leppard and Morello.

“It encapsulates a time that burned deep into our DNA. We wanted to celebrate that very important and glorious time,” says Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott.

“When I saw David Bowie on TV between 1972 and 1973, everything I thought I knew about music went from black and white to vivid technicolor,” guitarist Phil Collen adds. “Our song ‘Just Like 73’ represents that awakening.”

“I had a blast rocking a solo on “Just Like 73,” says Morello. “I played ‘Rock Of Ages’ in my college cover band almost 40 years ago and here Def Leppard are still killing it in stadiums with a brand new tune that’s one of their best.”

An animated music video for Just Like 73 will be released on June 20 at 4 PM BST.
