Hear ‘Trouble Is Your Middle Name,’ an Anthemic Song from Whitesnake’s New Album ‘Flesh & Blood’


As previously detailed, Whitesnake will get back at it on May 10th with Flesh & Blood, a new studio album and the follow-up to 2015’s The Purple Album.

To ramp up anticipation for the record, David Coverdale and the band premiered a new song, the hard-charging anthem “Trouble Is Your Middle Name,” as a preview of the LP:

This is the second song released thus far from Flesh & Blood, following the lead single, “Shut Up & Kiss Me,” which came with a music video featuring the iconic Jaguar featured in their classic ’80s song “Here I Go Again.”

The record, which also features Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitar, Michael Devin on bass, Tommy Aldridge on drums, and Michele Luppi on keyboards, is expected to be a fun, energetic release from the band. Said Coverdale to that effect:

“We’ve got some really dark energy going on in the world right now, so we’re gonna write & record a fun, knees up, song about falling in love with a fabulous babe. You’re over-talking, over-compensating & she just looks at you, takes the reins & says, ‘Shut Up and Kiss Me!’ and that’s it!! My video director and creative partner Tyler Bourns and I discussed a great storyline for the video, which involves a surprise guest: my fabulous old white Jaguar. We ended up cleaning and detailing it, as it has been in storage since I moved to Lake Tahoe, then we dusted off my old turquoise silk jacket from the original ‘Here I Go Again’ video and I was thinking, “man, this is going to be fun!” It’s a respectful acknowledgment and positive nod to the past, just fun stuff.”

The album’s track listing:

1. “Good To See You Again”
2. “Gonna Be Alright”
3. “Shut Up & Kiss Me”
4. “Hey You (You Make Me Rock)”
5. “Always & Forever”
6. “When I Think Of You (Color Me Blue)”
7. “Trouble Is Your Middle Name”
8. “Flesh & Blood”
9. “Well I Never”
10. “Heart Of Stone”
11. “Get Up”
12. “After All”
13. “Sands Of Time”
