    New DEEP PURPLE album!

    https://www.ear-music.net/turning-to-crime/

    It's all quite mysterious right now, but it appears as though a new album is on the way already after last year's Whoosh! (which I loved, as I've loved all three of the Ezrin-produced albums of the last decade... I hope he's onboard again.) I'm guessing they seized the opportunity with lockdowns preventing them from being on the road. Pretty great for a fan like me who loves all eras of their career, since I honestly thought Infinite would be the last one, and that will now be two albums ago.

    I'm excited to see what they reveal in the next 35 days (according to the counter at the bottom of the page). Hopefully some little hints here and there will appear. Good fun!

    Great news! I too enjoy the Bob Ezrin trilogy. I think Whoosh is my least favorite of the bunch, but it's still a fun album. Glad to hear that Purple are still inspired to create new music.

    Every time we think it's over, there's another one coming ! Good news if it's confirmed !
    With the two previous albums, the titles suggested that it might be the end, and now... who knows ?
    I just hope that it's better than those previous two albums, since I think they were OK but a bit lightweight (InFinite sounded... unfinished to my ears, and Whoosh a bit too poppy). I would like something a little more ambitious, although it may not be a realistic expectation at that point. Bring it on anyway.

    Oh. It's a covers album. I must say, that's disappointing to me. Might be okay still, but just not what I was expecting or had hoped for. Out in late November.

    Rush did two of these on their FEEDBACK album as well. Real perennials.

    It'll be fun to check this out. Good mix of tunes. I *thought* this was a little too soon after Whoosh! for another studio LP of originals. So be it.

    These guys are in a nice position. They are rich enough to do whatever they want and this seems like a good way to have some pandemic fun. And some fun that should be enjoyed by the fans too.

    It might be good fun, I was just prematurely excited because of how much I love the most recent few studio albums. I'm interested to hear them do White Room, I can hear Gillan sing that in my head. (I always thought young Ian Anderson could have done that one justice too.)

    I'd love their version of "Oh Well," too.

    Gillan did New Orleans with his own band IIRC.

    Yep, on Gillan's classic Future Shock record.

    Looking forward to the new Purple album. Like Lorne, I'm slightly disappointed that it's a covers album, but it's Deep Purple. So for me, an essential purchase.

    ^^ The verses remind me of The Byrds' version of Hey Joe.

    He really hasn't. I often list Paice/Glover among the more unsung rhythm sections in all of rock, despite the band itself being monstrously successful.

    The new single sounds good to me. It's great to hear Paice in a more energetic style than on Whoosh.

    He's keeping Paice....on his Paiste cymbals.
