The new album, NOW What?! has been produced by Bob Ezrin, one of the most important rock producers of all time (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Kiss and many others) it features 11 new songs. Apparently it was recorded with no musical rules and it shows a modern and fresh production.  Deep Purple have never sounded so close to the spirit of the 70s in the last 20 years as they do now. The record has the excellence and elegance of Perfect Strangers and the wild freedom of Made in Japan.

 

It will also be released as a limited edition with a bonus DVD featuring the band discussing the new album and one bonus studio cover version. It will be released as double vinyl LP and will be released in the UK on April 29th. Worldwide release dates can be found at www.deeppurple-nowwhat.com which will be updated daily with news, lyrics, photos & more.
