Deep Purple’s Roger Glover: “We’re Gonna Try And Do Another Album At Some Point Next Year”

It looks like Deep Purple are already thinking about working on a follow-up to their latest album “Whoosh!.” Bassist Roger Glover said the following about that during a virtual meet-and-greet with Finnish fan Anssi Herkkola:

“All this COVID situation has meant that we can’t tour. We’re twiddling our thumbs, really, for over a year, and the idea was to possibly go back in and do another album. And so we’re just working towards that. It’s so quick after we’d done the last album, [and] maybe that will spoil things, but we’re gonna try and do another album at some point next year. We’re experimenting with stuff.”
