Deep Purple has just completed their new album, produced by Bob Ezrin.
This marks the band's first album since the 2017 inFinite.
Announced via Facebook by singer Ian Gillan, he jokingly recalled that he was renting a renting a lovely AirBnB in Nashville called 'Rose River Cottage' in March while other bandmates were staying in "more urbane accomm".
"This was a shock, as we are famous for our lack of planning," he said. "and we all wondered what had drawn us together in this place and time."
"An even greater surprise was to follow; each member (arms and legs I’m talking about) arrived at a rehearsal studio and then a recording studio at roughly the same time on roughly the same day with roughly no idea of what we were doing," Gillan explained. "It was a total coincidence, the like of which has probably never been witnessed since – unbelievably – exactly the same thing happened a few years earlier when we spawned some In-Finite ideas."
The singer teased that a tour will most likely to follow, but he's not sure what would happen. Full details are expected to arrive early next year.
