PostHeaderIcon WHITESNAKE RETURN WITH FIRST NEW STUDIO ALBUM IN 4 YEARS

 
Rock icons Whitesnake are set to return with their 12th studio album this spring. The Purple Album will be released in North America on May 19th via Frontiers Music SRL. The Purple Album is a re-imagination of classic songs from David Coverdale's time as the lead singer for Deep Purple's Mark 3 and Mark 4 studio albums. The album is currently available for pre-order in various configurations on Amazon: a standard edition, a deluxe edition featuring 2 bonus tracks, 4 music videos and a Behind The Scenes featurette on the recording of the album and in a double LP vinyl format. Plans are also underway for a special limited box set edition with memorabilia and merchandise. All details will be announced soon.
 
Its a tribute. A homage. Its a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago, states Coverdale. As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldnt have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We cant wait to play these songs in concert!
 
From the opening notes of the classic track Burn, to album closer Stormbringer, Whitesnake are back and better than ever. Songs like Lady Double Dealer, Soldier of Fortune and Sail Away are given a new energy in the very capable hands of the current Whitesnake lineup featuring David Coverdale on vocals, Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitars, Michael Devin on bass and Tommy Aldridge on drums. A video for the first single Stormbringer can be seen below.
