Deep Purple covering Fleetwood Mac? doesn't get much better than this.

Deep Purple have released their cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well', which is the first single from their upcoming studio album, Turning to Crime.

“Everyone knows ‘Oh Well’ is a great song,” Roger Glover says.

“Steve did the demo for that one. You never quite know where it‘s gonna go with Steve because he is very inventive. Right up until the point, with a couple of verses in, it was pretty much the same as the original. And then, all of a sudden, it took off like a rocket… in some other space.”

Deep Purple's 'Turning To Crime', out November 26, will be made entirely of covers of songs by Boy Dylan, Cream, Bod Seger, and more. 

Speaking with UCR last year, drummer Ian Paice said this album is all about having fun.

"There’s enough crap out there messing our lives up. Music is one of the things that should give us pleasure."

"Now, hopefully, if you go through a long career like I’ve had, it can still be fun. There’s no reason why that should change. Okay, it gets a little more serious. You know, you have to treat it with a lot more respect. But it’s still fun."
