The Struts’ latest track preview from their new album, Strange Days, features Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen.

Embedded below is “I Hate How Much I Want You,” and it features a big sing-song chorus, so it’s definitely up Def Leppard’s alley. The track is the third preview from Strange Days following the release of “Another Hit of Showmanship” featuring The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr. and “Strange Days” featuring Robbie Williams. Tom Morello also guests on the album on a track called “Wild Child.”

In a statement from the band, they said of the new album, “Finding all of our plans for 2020 canceled or postponed, we gathered together safely in the studio and wrote and recorded the entire album in just ten days. It was undoubtedly a magical ten days for us—and we hope when you hear the album, it gives you a taste of that magic too.”

Strange Days is due out October 16 and is currently available for pre-order at StrangeDaysAlbum.com. The album is also available for pre-save on all major digital platforms here.
