Def Leppard Release Re-Recorded Hysteria

Def Leppard have released their newly-recorded version of "Hysteria," in anticipation of their upcoming Las Vegas residency, VIVA Hysteria. The track is available for purchase now at the band's official website.

The band began re-recording their old material note-for-note due to a digital royalties disagreement with their label, Universal:

"It was, well, let's just say a sensible business decision on our part," Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott told MTV.

"How can I put this politely? We were having a major disagreement with our ex-record label about the digital rights for our back catalog. We couldn't come to a mutual understanding that seemed fair for both sides.

During the run, which is comprised of 11 shows between March 22 and April 13, the band will play its 1987 album of the same name in full, along with a greatest hits segment.
