Whitesnake stream unreleased version of Is This Love



Whitesnake are streaming audio of a previously unreleased version of “Is This Love” ahead of the October 6 release of multiple editions of an expanded 30th Anniversary reissue of their classic 1987 self-titled album.

An early draft of the single is featured on a disc entitled “Evolutions 87”, which delivers a series of demos and rehearsal takes of every song from the record.

“Is This Love” hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 as the “Whitesnake” album went on to US sales of more than 8 million copies and Top 5 chart status in several countries around the world.

The 4CD/DVD "Whitesnake: Super Deluxe Edition" includes the original album with newly remastered sound, unreleased live and studio recordings, classic music videos, concert footage, a thirty-minute documentary, a 60-page hardbound book that's filled with rare and unseen photos from the era, an extended essay based on new interviews with David Coverdale, plus a booklet of the album's lyrics, handwritten by the rocker.

2CD and 2LP Deluxe Editions will present the newly-remastered album alongside a selection of unreleased bonus recordings, while a single-disc version of the project will also be available; all will be available via digital download and streaming services.

Whitesnake’s most recent release is 2015’s “The Purple Album”, which saw Coverdale re-record classic songs from the Deep Purple’s Mark 3 and Mark 4 records he appeared on: “Burn” (1974), “Stormbringer” (1974) and “Come Taste The Band” (1975).

Coverdale was inducted into the 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last year as a member of Deep Purple alongside players from the group’s first three lineups.
