Feb 25, 2015

Whitesnake have released their new single "Stormbringer", from their upcoming new studio album, "The Purple Album."

"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. It will be released on May 15th in Europe and May 19th in North America via Frontiers Music SRL. The album will be available in CD, Deluxe CD/DVD (featuring two bonus tracks), Vinyl and Digital formats. Pre-orders for the Deluxe CD/DVD: http://geni.us/WSPurpleDLXamz are available on Amazon.com. Pre-orders for Regular edition and LP are forthcoming.

“It’s a tribute. A homage. It’s 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 couldn’t have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can’t 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.
