On April 7, Deep Purple will return with a new album titled InFinite. It’ll be the legendary band’s first new record since 2013’s Now What?!.
The band also premiered a new single titled “Time for Bedlam” as an introduction to the new album:
InFinite was produced by Bob Ezrin, who also worked with Deep Purple on Now What?!.
It’s been a busy year or so for Deep Purple, who were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in April. Drummer Ian Paice also suffered a minor stroke that prevented him from appearing at a few concerts, as well.
2017 is shaping up to be a big, big year for the band, though, with this album and subsequent Long Goodbye Tour — and its suggestive and mysterious title, something front man Ian Gillan addressed as follows:
“If you take it literally, you may, quite reasonably, think the ‘Finite’ part of the word describes the life of Deep Purple, with a clear beginning and a nebulous end; but what of the ‘in’ bit? The word ‘infinite’ is a three-dimensional, double-edged sword. It describes something that goes on forever in all directions; not unlike its temporal equivalent ‘Eternal’. What’s that all about?”
Stay tuned for more about Deep Purple and their eventful year ahead!
