Def Leppard is releasing classical music!

Well, to be specific, the band is releasing an album with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

According to a press release, the band “Deconstructed and rebuilt not only some of their most well-known tracks but also some of their hidden gems as well. By and large, they have intertwined the audio from the original tapes and performed them alongside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The album includes new vocals and guitars which culminates in stunningly beautiful symphonic arrangements. At different points, you can hear Joe Elliot duetting with his younger self.”

You can check out the orchestral version of Def Leppard’s hit “Animal” now.

Check out the whole album, called “Drastic Symphonies,” when it is released on May 19th.
