Rock Legends Deep Purple Go Deeper On New Album
Rock Legends Deep Purple are back with a new single, Nothing At All
and a new album entitled Whoosh
. Lead vocalist Ian Gillan explains about the new single and album:
“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction...well, not exactly in this case; more cause and effect, where the latter is often greater than the former.
Distribution lines (the physical sales of CDs, vinyl, cassettes (?) etc) and retail outlets are closed until The Dreaded Lurgy gets indigestion.
"Therefore, as there are still so many of us who love to hold a new record in our hands, and following advice from our magnificent label, we decided to delay the release of Whoosh
"During my quarantine I’ve been listening to a lot of music and guessing that it’s the same for many of us during this scary disruption to our lives. We know, don’t we, that music will play a big part in our celebrations as we step back into the light. But, health comes first, so I must stuff my excitement about sharing Whoosh
with you back into a box for a little while. Stay well and follow the light…"
Deep Purple’s brand-new studio album “Whoosh”
follows their worldwide chart-topping albums “inFinite” (2017) and “NOW What?!” (2013). For the third time, Deep Purple joins forces with producer Bob Ezrin, and together they created the most versatile album in their collaboration, “stretching out in all directions” without any limitation, letting their creativity go.
As Ian Gillan says, the new album takes the band back into deeper territory:
“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 a 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.
is an onomatopoeic word that, when viewed through one end of a radio-telescope, describes the transient nature of humanity on Earth; and, through the other end from a closer perspective, illustrates the career of Deep Purple."
