Hear the Deep Purple version for Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well”:
In an official statement, bassist Roger Glover talked about the song, saying: “Everyone knows ‘Oh Well’ is a great song. Steve did the demo for that one. You never quite know where it‘s gonna go with Steve because he is very inventive. Right up until the point, with a couple of verses in, it was pretty much the same as the original. And then, all of a sudden, it took off like a rocket… in some other space.”
“Turning to Crime” is the first studio album by Deep Purple entirely made of songs not written by the band and previously recorded by other artists. It is produced by Bob Ezrin and will be released on earMUSIC on November 26, 2021.
