Def Leppard’s Diamond Star Halos issued on SDE-exclusive blu-ray

Def Leppard’s 2022 studio album Diamond Star Halos will be the next release, on blu-ray audio, in the ongoing SDE Surround Series.

The 15-track long-player includes the singles ‘Kick’, ‘Fire It Up’ and ‘Take What You Want’ and features guest vocals from Alison Krauss on two tracks: ‘This Guitar’ and ‘Lifeless’. The album – the band’s 12th – was co-produced by Ronan McHugh and was a critical and commercial success, peaking in the top 10 of both the UK and US album charts.

The new forthcoming SDE-exclusive blu-ray edition will feature a Steven Wilson Dolby Atmos Mix of Diamond Star Halos, which is the first time this spatial audio mix has been available on a physical product. It will also include an exclusive instrumental version, the standard stereo mix and two rare bonus tracks, unreleased physically outside of Japan (‘Angels Can’t Help You Now – Stripped Version (Covent Garden Mix)’ and ‘This Guitar – Joe Only Version’).
