June 20 will mark the release of a special DEEP PURPLE EP that will exclusively be available via indie retailers.
The limited 10” vinyl is not only the first physical format release from the band’s upcoming album “Whoosh!”, it also comes with a special surprise.
In addition to “Throw My Bones” and “Man Alive”, previously available on digital shops, it includes a third song, taken from the album, that will only be available on this EP until the release of “Whoosh!” on August 7.
The title of the track will be revealed on the band’s social media channels in the coming days!
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.” – Ian Gillan
“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 Box Set and Digital on August 7 on earMUSIC.
