Arrow Significant new Deep Purple album in 2012 (official announcement)!

According to the official Deep Purple website they will definately go back to the studio this summer (2012) for recording their next studio album. Maybe a classic in the making (as they announced officially on their site, that this next album will be a significant album). After this album they will go touring in the fall of 2012 an far into 2013

Of course we look forward to the new album, Willem. Let's say we are just a bit reluctant because it has been promised for a long time.
As I hadn't planned to go to any of the summer dates, the cancellation doesn't affect me at all.

KISS came after more than ten years with a very good album Sonic Boom, it was creative and sold pretty well (for standards nowadays). ACDC came after more than six years (or something like that) with Black Ice: that album sold very good. Motorheads last album The World is Yours, is also very good(Lemmy is the same age as big Ian and Roger) and sold good.

There is enough prove that these old geezers can make good music

Hoj Willem,

I'm afraid you misunderstood me. It's not the quality of the next Purple album I'm questioning, just the timing, the when and if at all. There has been so much talk and rumours about another album. They were in a studio in Spain and nothing came out of it.

When I have the assurance that they really are in a studio and recording some new horny Purple music, then and only then I will believe it!

And of course I hope that they will play a few of the new songs during the next tour

And yes, I must admit that I don't want to hear SOTW on the encore anymore! It's time for something hotter than smoke. I want FIRE!!

(And you're absolutely right about AC/DC! )

Smoke on the water is not the problem for the encores... the real problem is Hush and Black night...

Smoke on the water should be the real closer IMHO...

Funny kind of problems you have, my friend And I thought the French had real taste...

P.S. What's wrong with Hush and Black Night?

Very recent interview in the Calgary Herald with Ian Gillan says a.o. I think it's time for some new material. We have a lot of ENERGY for this and we are having a good time. The sessions in Spain from last year: Nothing really happened and we were not in the mood (). We"ll start from scratch now and see what happens
Ian G. is very positive and eager about it, because they haven't written anything in quite a while.

Let's rock

I'm just watching the dvd "Deep Purple The Ultimate Collection" about the history of the band from mk1 until mk4.
Very interesting, and Glenn is talking also here. Must have been a couple of years ago maybe on 2006?
So what is important for a significant purple album?
I think it's just tension, that's the magic word.
When musicians are able to push one another into higher regions it is a good thing.
On mk2 it was the tension between Blackmore and Lord musically and certainly Blackmore and Gillan. But between them it went wrong like we all know.
Until "Machine Head" it worked, for me the tension was on optimum on "In Rock".
Then after mk2 the tension became stronger with Glenn and Coverdale joining the band.
On "Burn" all members of purple were grown, and Blackmore played better than before on my personal opinion.
Blackmore is a "funky" guitarplayer indeed in a subtle way, also Glenn said that here, and together with Glenn Ritchie Blackmore could grow on a rythm level again.
"You fool no one" is a masterpiece of that new rythm quality of the band.

The tension was pyramidal, rock against soul, classic against blues.

Like in a good musical instrument the tension has to be perfect to achieve a good tone, the same thing happens in a band. Sometimes

greets
Sigurd

The plans to make a SIGNIFICANT new DP album seem to be very serious. Because Steve said in a interview very recently, that Bob Ezrin is going to be the producer of this album. Bob Ezrin is one of the most famous classic rock producers (same level as Martin Birch, I suppose). A better producer is hard to find
He is famous because of epic productions. So, let's make this new album significant and epic. Deep Purple and Bob Ezrin: what a combination

I think it's great to have such a famous producer on board.
This alone will get the attention of the press.

But if he's the right producer for Deep Purple I don't know.
He did some great productions, but also some where too much was added to the sound (choirs, orchestras etc).
And on a lot of albums he also got writing credits.
Completely different from what DP is doing.

But they may surprise me and come up with a killer album.
I hope they do, they deserve it.

No good having a great producer if the songs are crap!

I'd rather they had an unknown producer and wrote some decent songs.

How about having a great producer and horny material on top of it? That'd be the icing on the cake.

Just hope they will include two or three of the new songs during the November tour.
Otherwise poor Stormy will have to endure Hush or Black Night during 12 shows. Or is it 13 or 14...
