Whitesnake are premiering video of the classic Deep Purple track, “Soldier Of Fortune”, as a preview of their upcoming May 19 release, “The Purple Album.”

It’s the fourth tune issued in advance of the record, following "Stormbringer", “Burn” and “Lay Down Stay Down.”

The group’s 12th album sees frontman David Coverdale re-recording classic songs from the Deep Purple Mark 3 and Mark 4 records he appeared on: “Burn” (1974), “Stormbringer” (1974) and “Come Taste The Band” (1975).

In addition to Coverdale, Whitesnake’s current lineup includes guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, bassist Michael Devin, keyboardist Michele Luppi and drummer Tommy Aldridge.

Whitesnake will launch a North American tour on May 28 in Airway Heights, Washington.
