(hennemusic) Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan reveals in a new interview that the band's new album has been completed and that he expects it to be released in February of 2017.

"I just heard it for the first time yesterday," Gillan tells AntiHero magazine. The group recorded the follow-up to 2013's "Now What?!" with legendary producer Bob Ezrin earlier this year.

Gillan revealed some inside details on the group's approach to songwriting. "Deep Purple is primarily an instrumental band," he says. "Primarily an instrumental band and the routine is, we book a running finish in 10 days, generally in a studio somewhere and the guys come in at noon. They start jamming and they work till 6 o'clock, take a break at 3 for a cup of tea and then do that every day.

"(Bassist) Roger (Glover) and I listen to the music and clock out the occasional bit and think that might be okay for a tune on the album or something. Then we start refocusing on making arrangements and how to develop the song. Then when it is all tucked away I start thinking about the lyrics and the tunes." Read more here.
