Deep Purple Delay New Album “Whoosh!”

Deep Purple’s new album, “Whoosh!,” has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The effort, which was originally set to be released on June 12, is now expected to be released in August.

Ian Gillan commented:

“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction…well, not exactly in this case; more cause and effect, where the latter is often greater than the former.

Distribution lines (the physical sales of CDs, vinyl, cassettes (?) etc) and retail outlets are closed until The Dreaded Lurgy* gets indigestion.

Therefore, as there are still so many of us who love to hold a new record in our hands, and following advice from our magnificent label, we have decided to delay the release of Whoosh until August.

During my quarantine I’m listening to a lot of music and guessing that it’s the same for many of us during this scary disruption to our lives.

We know, don’t we, that music will play a big part in our celebrations as we step back into the light.

But, health comes first, so I must stuff my excitement about sharing Whoosh with you back into a box for a little while.

Stay well and follow the light…
