The Struts Team Up With Def Leppard On New Single ‘I Hate How Much I Want You’

The Struts have shared their new single “I Hate How Much I Want You” the new single from their upcoming album, Strange Days.

The fiery new song sees them teaming up with Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot and Phil Collen. The Struts frontman Luke Spiller shares vocal duties with Elliot while Collen unleashes a blistering guitar riff. Listen to the song below.

“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,” says Collen.

“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,” says Elliott. “I’ve been a massive fan of the band since I first heard them so it’s not just a pleasure, it’s an honor 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!”

Spiller adds, “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.”

Previously, The Struts shared singles “Strange Days” featuring Robbie Williams and “Another Hit of Showmanship” featuring Albert Hammond Jr. Their new album Strange Days comes out October 16th.
