The Struts / Def Leppard’s Collen and Elliott join for new single

The Struts will release their new single ‘I Hate How Much I Want You’ 16 October, via Interscope Records. The track features Def Leppard members Phil Collen and Joe Elliott.

Taken from their upcoming album ‘Strange Days’, which is due out 16 October, this is the bands third single. It follows ‘Strange Days’, which featured Robbie Williams and ‘Another Hit Of Showmanship’, which included Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes.

Luke Spiller told us: “Phil and Joe really gave the song so much personality, to the point it sounds like a timeless Glam Rock stomper that your mum sang along to in the ’70’s.”

Phil Collen tells us: “I loved the sound of The Struts since the moment I first heard them, so it gives me great pleasure that Luke and the boys asked myself and Joe to participate in some mutual, mischievous, explosive rowdiness.

Joe said: “When Luke called me up and asked if I fancied lending my voice to The Struts new album, I said yes before I even knew what he wanted,.

“I’ve been a massive fan of the band since I first heard them, so it’s not just a pleasure, it’s an honour to be part of this ‘Born in Covid’ album and what a song!

“Makes me feel like a kid again every time I hear it!”
