Sheffield rockers Def Leppard are to release a greatest hits album – with a cover of Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus as its lead single.
The band will release The Story So Far - The Best Of’ on November 30 and it will be backed up by their own version of the 1989 top 20 hit.
The group, best known for hits including Animal and Let’s Get Rocked, are also releasing a festive single called We All Need Christmas.
It comes in the same week that the Sheffield band were announced as nominees on the shortlist for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The greatest hits album will be available in multiple configurations: a 2-CD set comprised of 35 tracks, 1-CD comprised of 17 tracks and 2 LP vinyl, and digital.
