The making of the album

Deep Purple released in their official Youtube a making of video of the album talking a little bit more about the project.

Previous album: Whoosh!

Deep Purple released the praised album “Whoosh!” back in August 2020. In an official statement at the time, Ian Gillan talked about the album, saying: “It’s nice, to be honest. I feel like we’re back in the ’70s. There’s this energy that’s quite fascinating to me. How does it feel? It feels good because we had a lot of fun making this record.”

“We spent five or six days in Germany earlier this year. Then we went to Nashville for two and a half weeks where we did the writing and arrangements. It was remarkably quick. Then I rented a cottage on the banks of the Cumberland River, overlooking the Grand Ole Opry.”

“So I can hear the music floating from across the river until the early hours of the morning. And then I would sit up all through the night and write in this magical atmosphere. How do I feel? Pretty good. It’s nice when you finish a project and you’re happy with the result.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
