new music 28/02/2020

Deep Purple has announced a new album, 'Whoosh!' will be hitting stores near you this 12th June.

The band will be going on a Europe & U.K. trek in support of their new record.

Whoosh! marks the band's 21st studio album, produced by longtime producer, Bob Ezrin.

"Together they created the most versatile album in their collaboration," says their label, earMusic.

"Deep Purple' stretched out in all directions' without any limitation, letting their creativity go," they continued. 'Deep Purple is putting the Deep back into Purple' was the half-joking motto in the studio after the first songs made it clear that Ezrin and Purple were on their path to creating an album pushing the boundaries of time, while voicing their resentment about the current situation of the world and addressing all generations."

Guitarist Steve Morse explained that they have included everything that "made the whole band smile, including Bob Ezrin". He explained that the band had always enjoyed creating music and is thankful for having a very loyal fan base.

Singer Ian Gillan previously confirmed the new album was in the works last year. "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," he said.

You can pre-order the album here. See the track list below.
