Audio samples of all the songs that will appear on DEEP PURPLE‘s next studio effort, an album of covers titled “Turning To Crime”, are available in the YouTube clip below. Due on November 26 via earMUSIC, the LP will contain DEEP PURPLE‘s versions of great rock classics and musical jewels — including songs originally recorded by Bob Dylan, FLEETWOOD MAC, Bob Seger, CREAM and THE YARDBIRDS — carefully chosen by each member of the band.
Produced by Bob Ezrin, “Turning To Crime” arrives only 15 months after “Whoosh!”, DEEP PURPLE‘s 21st studio album, which received acclaim by critics who praised the creative strength of a band that continues evolving with every release, and prestigious chart achievements (third consecutive No. 1 in Germany, No. 4 in the U.K., and topped the U.S. Independent Album and Hard Music Albums charts).
DEEP PURPLE‘s “time trilogy”, consisting of “NOW What?!” (2013), “inFinite” (2017) and “Whoosh!” has sold over 1 million albums, topped the charts 11 times and achieved more than 40 Top 10 positions worldwide.
