Whitesnake share behind the scenes video look at Flesh And Blood album

Whitesnake are streaming a behind the scenes video look at the making of their latest album, “Flesh & Blood.”

Issued this past spring, the band’s thirteenth studio set presents 13 new tracks with David Coverdale joined by a lineup featuring guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, bassist Michael Devin, keyboardist Michele Luppi and drummer Tommy Aldridge.

The project was introduced with the lead single, “Shut Up & Kiss Me”, whose companion video featured a Whitesnake throwback and went on to top 1 million views in its first month on YouTube.

“We’ve got some really dark energy going on in the world right now, so we’re gonna write and record a fun, knees up, song about falling in love with a fabulous babe,” explained Coverdale. “You’re over-talking, over-compensating and she just looks at you, takes the reins and says, 'Shut Up And Kiss Me!' and that’s it!!

“My video director and creative partner Tyler Bourns and I discussed a great storyline for the video, which involves a surprise guest: my fabulous old white Jaguar. We ended up cleaning and detailing it, as it has been in storage since I moved to Lake Tahoe, then we dusted off my old turquoise silk jacket from the original ‘Here I Go Again’ video and I was thinking, "man, this is going to be fun!" It’s a respectful acknowledgment and positive nod to the past, just fun stuff.”

Whitesnake will return to the road in February for shows in Australia and New Zealand with the Scorpions before performing in Indonesia, Singapore and Japan the following month.
