Deep Purple Debated Making New Album

(Classic Rock) Deep Purple spent three years wondering whether they should make 19th studio album Now What?! says bassist Roger Glover. The band struggled over the decision until they spoke to producer Bob Ezrin last year, and he crystallized their thinking.

"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.
