Deep Purple Stream New Song 'Time For Bedlam' was a Top 3 story on Thursday: (hennemusic) Deep Purple have released a lyric video for "Time For Bedlam", the lead track from their forthcoming album, "Infinite." Due April 7, the follow-up to 2013's "Now What?!" was recorded earlier this year in Nashville, TN with legendary producer Bob Ezrin.

"Time For Bedlam" will be available as instant download as part of the digital album pre-order, as well as on all streaming platforms starting Thursday, December 15 at midnight worldwide with the physical pre-order of the album to start at the same time.

A limited edition EP for "Time For Bedlam" - with non-album songs and unreleased recordings - will be released on February 3. Deep Purple will support their 20th studio release with dates on The Long Goodbye tour, with speculation it may the group's farewell trek.

"If you take it literally you may, quite reasonably, think the 'Finite' part of the word describes the life of Deep Purple, with a clear beginning and a nebulous end; but what of the 'in' bit?," says singer Ian Gillan. "The word infinite is a three-dimensional, double-edged sword. It describes something that goes on forever in all directions; not unlike its temporal equivalent 'Eternal' What's that all about?

"Stephen Hawking declared (in A brief History Of Time) that, before the Big Bang there was nothing. That would put the kybosh on the idea of our universe being Infinite, as he provides a starting point, which is not acceptable to the concept. So, Hawking's universe is 'Finite' by definition; whether he agrees or not."

"Ironically, he is quite wrong (scientists always are eventually)," Gillan adds, "therefore the Universe is infinite, which means it will never end, and also means that it never started, and the corollary to that of course is that we don't exist.

"There is a metaphysical solution to all this, but it will have to wait until the tour is over because (thanks heavens) there are only 24 hours in a day (for the time being) or 10 hours in a metric day. More on that later…" Stream the new song - here.
