With the release of their 21st studio album Whoosh! approaching, Deep Purple embark on the next part of their journey by releasing their new radio single “Nothing At All”.
The lyrics of “Nothing At All” sound like an observation of what we humans have done to Mother Earth in our short time of existence. After exploring the subject of time and space with “Throw My Bones” and following the concerned look into the future of the second single “Man Alive”, “Nothing At All” brings a big philosophical question: is it really “nothing at all”?
With the music videos for the two previous singles “Throw My Bones” and “Man Alive”, Deep Purple have sent their spaceman on a very special journey and rumor has it that the spaceman’s story is going to be continued very soon…
On August 7th, Rock N' Roll Hall Of Fame icons Deep Purple will release Whoosh!, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin - available as a Standard CD, a Digital Album, a Limited Edition CD+DVD Mediabook (including the 1-hour feature “Roger Glover and Bob Ezrin - In Conversation” and, for the first time, the band's stellar full-length live performance at Hellfest 2017 video), plus a deluxe Vinyl 2LP+DVD edition.
Band members Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse, and Don Airey were invited by Bob Ezrin to Nashville to write and record, during which the band were inspired to push their creative boundaries. Letting go of any artistic limitations, they adopted the motto “Deep Purple is putting the Deep back in Purple”. Whoosh! embodies that freedom, with lyrics that reflect their sentiments on the current situation of the world. “We’ve included everything that made the whole band smile, including Bob Ezrin,” exclaims Morse. “We’ve always enjoyed making music and having the incredible luxury of a loyal audience.”
Whoosh! marks Deep Purple’s third studio album produced by Bob Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, Kiss). The first, 2013’s Now What?!, charted at #1 in five European countries, as well as Top 10 in over 15 countries worldwide. Cementing itself as one of their most successful albums, inFinite, released in 2017, broke chart records the band had accumulated over their 50+ year history. With chemistry this electric, it only made sense for Deep Purple and Ezrin to collaborate a third time.
One of the most important rock bands of all time, Deep Purple has built a legacy that is nothing short of immeasurable. The band continues to evolve and elevate the possibilities within hard rock, which is fully displayed on "Nothing At All", as well as on Whoosh!
