Deep Purple release animated video for The Surprising

Deep Purple have issued an animated video for “The Surprising”, a track from their latest album, “inFinite.”

Directed and illustrated by Matt Rooke, alongside producers Peter Rogers, Craig Hooper and Collin Games, the clip takes the viewer on a journey through the 50-year history of the band with sometimes subtle visual references to their classic albums and tracks.

Deep Purple recorded “inFinite” last year in Nashville, TN with producer Bob Ezrin, who also worked with them on 2013’s "Now What?!"

Coinciding with the video premiere for “The Surprising”, Deep Purple will issue a limited gold edition of “inFinite” on November 3.

The 2CD digipack release will deliver the original album alongside a previously unreleased 80-minute live show from Hellfest 2017, the biggest metal festival in France.

The concert will also be issued on the 3LP set, “The inFinite Live Recordings, Pt. 1.”

In addition, Deep Purple will release the 97-minute documentary, “From Here To inFinite”, on Blu-ray; it presents, for the first time, the development of the album and a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the band.

The package delivers two hours of bonus material, including music videos for "The Surprising", three previously unreleased live videos ("Time For Bedlam", "Birds Of Prey" and "Smoke On The Water"), all filmed and recorded at Hellfest 2017, as well as in-depth behind the scenes footage, movie documentary outtakes, interviews, and an audio commentary by Deep Purple themselves — all previously unreleased.

Currently on a break from the road, Deep Purple will resume their “inFinite – The Long Goodbye Tour” with dates in Europe beginning November 6 in Stockholm, Sweden.
