According to Billboard.com, DEF LEPPARD is "about 85, 90 percent finished" with its next CD, which frontman Joe Elliott describes as "a very rock album." "I'm not gonna say it's radically different to anything we've ever done," Elliott told Billboard.com. "There's classic DEF LEPPARD. There's stuff that sounds like it's going back to the middle, late-'70s AC/DC and new wave-type sounding stuff. There's definitely some moments on it where anybody that's familiar with our music will go, 'Whoa! I wasn't expecting that!' We've just been very adventurous, musically, on certain numbers." Elliott said the "Sparkle Lounge" album title refers to a room the group maintained backstage during its 2006 tour dates, where the musicians would congregate with co-producer and live sound technician Ronan McHugh to work up and record ideas.
