According to a major Deep Purple feature in German publication Rocks (#75), the upcoming Purple album is titled “Whoosh!”. Produzed by Bob Ezrin, it is said to feature only seven new songs, all of them quite lengthy. In fact, you need to go back to “Machine Head” (1972) and “Who Do We Think We Are” (1973) to find that kind of format, so in a way this is pretty exciting news. Apparently, the title alludes to climate change, but maybe, just maybe there is a closet Xena fan in the band? Just joking, but one of the great Xena sites is called Whoosh!

No official release date right now, but this should be out in the Spring.
