DEEP PURPLE Bassist ROGER GLOVER - "Every Album Is Potentially Our Last Album"

Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover guested on Talkin' Rock With Meltdown to discuss the band's forthcoming 21st album, Whoosh!, and their longevity. Check out the interview below.

Glover: "Whoosh!... 50 years in the making. Every album is potentially our last album. We thought the last album was the last album, but there's another one. So we just keep going. I remember Jon Lord (keyboards) once described Deep Purple as an atomic toy - it just keeps going."

Deep Purple's new album, Whoosh!, will be released on August 7 via earMusic. Whoosh! will also be available as a Standard CD, a Digital Album, a Limited Edition CD+DVD Mediabook (including the 1 hour feature “Roger Glover And Bob Ezrin In Conversation” and, for the first time, the full live performance at Hellfest 2017 video), and a Vinyl 2LP+DVD edition (earMUSIC). Pre-order here, and watch Ian Paice unbox the box set, below:

According to Darker Than Blue, HMV Records are offering a limited edition CD/DVD book box, which includes three more tracks from Rio 2017 added at the back end of the new studio album (not a separate disc).

Says Deeper Than Blue: "They are also doing their own limited vinyl version in purple wax. This may be the same as the German purple edition content wise; the reliably terrible hmv website isn't clear."

Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse, and Don Airey were invited by Bob Ezrin to Nashville to write and record, during which the band were inspired to push their creative boundaries. Letting go of any artistic limitations, they adopted the motto “Deep Purple is putting the Deep back in Purple”. Whoosh! embodies that freedom, with lyrics that reflect their sentiments on the current situation of the world.

“We’ve included everything that made the whole band smile, including Bob Ezrin,” exclaims Morse. “We’ve always enjoyed making music and having the incredible luxury of a loyal audience.”

Whoosh! marks Deep Purple’s third album produced by Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd). The first - 2013’s Now What?! - charted at #1 in five European countries, as well as Top 10 in over 15 countries worldwide. Cementing itself as one of their most successful albums, inFinite, released in 2017, broke chart records the band accumulated over their 50+year history. With chemistry this electric, it only made sense for Deep Purple and Ezrin to collaborate a third time.
