The title of our new album is still a question mark to all of us… We have recorded a new album, and it’s a fantastic collection of songs.
At the moment that’s the only affirmative point we can offer…”
-Ian Gillan, December 2012
Eight years after the release of Rapture Of The Deep, Deep Purple, one of the most important and influential British rock bands of all time, have confirmed the release of a new album featuring brand new studio material. This yet-to-be-titled album will be released stateside on April 30, 2013.
Following various songwriting sessions in Europe, the band recorded and mixed the album in Nashville with famed producer Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd’s The Wall, Alice Cooper and many others), creating a work that blends the classic 70s Deep Purple spirit with modern production and a progressive mindset. A few working song titles, recently revealed by Ian Gillan are “Out Of Hands”, “Uncommon Man” and “Hell to Pay”.
record company earMUSIC will reveal details about the new album as soon as they become available, on a dedicated website where all band members will also be able to post and interact with the fans: www.deeppurple2013.com
