Coverdale Revisits Deep Purple On New Whitesnake Album

. Whitesnake have revealed that their forthcoming album will find frontman David Coverdale revisiting and "re-imagining" some of the classic songs that he performed in the Mk III and Mk IV eras of Deep Purple.

The new album, entitled appropriately "The Purple Album", is set to be released in North America on May 19th in a standard edition, double LP vinyl version and a deluxe edition that will feature two bonus tracks, four music videos and a Behind The Scenes featurette. You can preorder the various versions here.

The band has also released a music video for "Stormbringer," the first single from the album. You can watch the video here. Coverdale had the following to say about the album, "It's a tribute. A homage. It's a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago

"As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldn't have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can't wait to play these songs in concert!"
