Deep Purple Confirm New Album
Deep Purple will release a brand new album in April next year. It will be their 19th LP, and follows 2005's "Rapture In The Deep". Producer Bob Ezrin is at the helm, and it's said to match the spirit of their classic 79s sound with fresh modern production. No album title has been revealed, but track titles will include "Out Of Hand", "Hell To Pay", "Weirdistan" and "Uncommon Man". A tribute to their keyboardist Jon Lord, who died in July, will be titled "Above And Beyond". "There's a big question mark over the [album] name at the moment," singer Ian Gillian told. "And possibly an exclamation mark as well. All will become clear, as mud, later on." Meanwhile, a limited edition Deep Purple collector's book called "Deep Purple At The California Jam" will be available soon. It documents the day the band appeared before 165,000 fans at the Ontario Speedway in 1974 with hundreds of unseen photographs from front and backstage. A signed edition, including the signature of Jon Lord before he died, is bound in purple leather and includes a double vinyl recording of the performance. You'll have to be quick - only 350 copies will be available, at 300 ($484) each. If that's too pricey, there's also a 200 ($322) vinyl edition and standard edition for 120 ($194).
