After various songwriting sessions in Europe, the band recorded and mixed the album in Nashville with producer Bob Ezrin (PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER, KISS, etc). A short audio teaser for the upcoming album can be found below:

Says frontman Ian Gillan: "The title of our new album is still a question mark to all of us... We have recorded a new album, and it's a fantastic collection of songs. At the moment that's the only affirmative point we can offer.”

The album is rumoured to be the perfect match from the original spirit of '70s Purple, and a fresh and modern production. Ian Gillan recently revealed a few working titles of songs that might appear on the album: 'Out Of Hands', 'Uncommon Man' and 'Hell To Pay'.

earMUSIC will reveal more details about the new album as they become available on a dedicated website, where all band members will also be able to post and interact with the fans. The site can be found at this location.
