Deep Purple share new album update

Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan is sharing an update on the band’s forthcoming album, “Whoosh!”

The rocker explains the current global health crisis has affected the originally scheduled June 12 release date for their first new record since 2017’s “inFinite.”

“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction,” says Gillan, “...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 have decided to delay the release of ‘Whoosh’ until August.”

“During my quarantine,”
he continues, “I’m 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 recently issued “Throw My Bones” as the lead track and first preview of the project, which they recorded with producer Bob Ezrin in Nashville, TN.
