About Deep Purple/Whoosh!
Deep Purple has just confirmed a new album titled Whoosh! which is slated for a August 7TH release via earMUSIC.
The Bob Ezrin-produced recording (his third for the band) is the iconic group’s 21 and a limited edition version will include for the first time the band’s full live performance at Hellfest 2017.
Musicians Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse, and Don Airey were invited by Ezrin to visit Nashville where they would write and record where the guys adopted the motto
“Deep Purple is putting the Deep back in Purple.” Morse notes, “We’ve included everything that made the whole band smile, including Bob Ezrin. We’ve always enjoyed making music and having the incredible luxury of a loyal audience.”
Deep Purple’s brand-new studio album “Whoosh!” follows their worldwide chart-topping albums “InFinite” (2017) and “NOW What?!” (2013). For the third time, Deep Purple joins forces with producer Bob Ezrin, and together they created the most versatile album in their collaboration, “stretching out in all directions” without any limitation, letting their creativity go.
“Deep Purple is putting the Deep back into Purple” was the half-joking motto in the studio after the first songs made it clear that Ezrin and Purple were on a path to creating an album
pushing the boundaries of time, while voicing their resentment about the current situation of the world and addressing all generations.
“Whoosh is an onomatopoeic word that, when viewed through one end of a radio-telescope, describes the transient nature of humanity on Earth; and, through the other end from a closer perspective, illustrates the career of Deep Purple.” - ig
“Whoosh!” will be available as Limited CD+DVD Mediabook (incl. the 1h feature “Roger Glover and Bob Ezrin in conversation” and, for the first time, the full live performance at Hellfest 2017
as video), 2LP+DVD Edition, Limited Boxset and Digital on August 7th, 2020 on earMUSIC.
Already the content of the Limited Box Set has been revealed. It will contain the 2LP Gatefold, the CD+DVD Mediabook, three 10” vinyls containing previously unreleased live recordings from Deep Purple’s performance in Rio 2017 “The inFinite Live Recordings, Vol. 2”, an exclusive Deep Purple Collector’s T-Shirt as well as three Art Prints.
