Ian Gillan said about the postponement of the new Deep Purple album:

“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction…well, not exactly in this case; more cause and effect, where the latter is often greater than the former. Distribution lines (the physical sales of CDs, vinyl, cassettes (?) etc). And retail outlets are closed until The Dreaded Lurgy* gets indigestion.”

“Therefore, as there are still so many of us who love to hold a new record in our hands. And following advice from our magnificent label, we have decided to delay the release of Whoosh until August.”

“During my quarantine I’m listening to a lot of music. And guessing that it’s the same for many of us during this scary disruption to our lives. We know, don’t we, that music will play a big part in our celebrations as we step back into the light.”

“But, health comes first, so I must stuff my excitement about sharing Whoosh with you back into a box for a little while. Stay well and follow the light…”

Deep Purple is composed by: Ian Gillan (Vocals), Steve Morse (Guitar), Roger Glover (Bass), Ian Paice (Drums) and Don Airey (Keyboards).

In promotional material, they claim that the motto of “Whoosh!” was “putting Deep back in Purple”, in the sense of giving more depth to the songs. The band points out that “it extended in all directions, without limitations, allowing creativity to flow” on this new album.
