Deep Purple Debated Making New Album
"There were different theories in the band about whether we should do a record again, whether we should release an EP, or some singles on the Internet," Glover tells Vintage Rock. "But the bottom line of thinking is: we're an album band and we always were an album band.
"We kind of railed against doing singles. That's kind of strange vanity – but an album, especially with a band like us, is a sort of state of the union address, if you like. It's the state of the band that we're in now.
"Every album we make is a kind of a point in time. I thought we needed to do one. Three years ago, we started thinking seriously, 'Let's have a writing session.' We had no idea where or when we were going to record it." He continues here.
