inFinite tangibles and intangibles

Further details continue to trickle down on the new Deep Purple album inFinite. The track list has surfaced on Amazon:

  1. Time for bedlam
  2. Hip boots
  3. All I’ve got is you
  4. One night in Vegas
  5. Get me outta here
  6. The surprising
  7. Johnny’s band
  8. On top of the world
  9. Birds of prey
  10. Roadhouse blues

By perusing various online retailers one can also deduce that the album will be available as a standalone CD, limited edition CD+DVD, 2LP+DVD, “small” box set (1CD + 1DVD), and a “large” a.k.a. “fan” box set (2LPs, 3 10″ singles, CD, DVD, t-shirt, poster, photo prints, and a sticker). And, of course, the ever so intangible downloads.

Release date is still set for April 7.

Thanks to Lutz Reinert for the info.

    Milan: you’re absolutely right, correct link would be https://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B01N9HR3Q9/thehighwaysta-21

    I account directly with Amazon via distribution through who’s putting the records everywhere in the US. The sounbytes should already be there, but Purple aren’t everyone. And it starts across the pond. We’ll have to play their game. Good thing I’m on the promo list, but even that doesn’t mean it will result in advanced copies beyond radio stations and very carefully chosen outfits.

    Deep Purple on ice…. can hardly wait! Just wondering if ‘Roadhouse blues’ is an original number, or if it’s a cover of The Doors’ hit song…. & BTW, who the heck is ‘Johnny’?. Smiles to ya.

    The new song sounds promising i am sure before it’s release date in April a couple more tracks down the line will be previewed, i have noticed too with new releases of classic rock artists or should i say legendary artists and Deep Purple no exception we are now seeing a number of formats rather than the stand alone cd/vinyl we are now getting both of those formats as well as a dvd and a times bluray, it gives us fans excellent choices all as i would call it deluxe super deluxe editions it’s great to see and with Thunder their new album also due the box sets look
    amazing looking forward to Deep Purple’s “final” studio album?

    Roadhouse Blues…..
    A Doors cover to end Purple’s recording career ??
    Doesn’t seem right somehow.

    Well well well, somehow the track list suprises me. For some reason or another, it does not look like a Deep Purple album track list. Hip boots, One night in Vegas, Johnny’s band, Roadhouse blues. It’s weird. Just cannot explain in more detail.

    But I’m sure the music is great.

    Robert Salmi says:

    Road house blues.
    The Doors cover?

    What the hell ever happened to iconic song titles like: Mandrake Root, Flight of the Rat, Into the Fire, The Mule, Smoke on the Water, and Burn? Now we have Hip Boots, All I’ve got is you, One night in Vegas, Get me outta here?! Indeed.

    Agreed.

    I can’t believe Hip boots made it in the set list. It’s such a weak song which the guys tried in Polad early last year. It sounded so out of tune and the lyrics is nothing more than 3 lines.
    I have a feeling it’s going to be a step down from Now What. Which I think it didn’t have enough quality of material.

    I hope Roadhouse Blues is not the Doors cover,but for some reason I am almost 100% is,given the admiration Ian Gillan and band has for the band.Kind of Weird,since im not a big fan of covers,and I want a new song instead of covers.We will see.

    Well, maybe these are the working titles…

    Let’s wait til february, when the EP is out.

    Have a nice Day!

    Oh, man! I think Roadhouse Blues (Doors) would be an absolutely perfect last song for the band.

    If roadhouse blues is the doors song, purples first bass player Nick Simper beat them to it with nasty habits live cd!

    I dont want to expect anything,but I can’t stop thinking that maybe “Time for Bedlam” is the only one of the few strong songs of the album… Titles like “Hip boots”, “One night in Vegas”, “Johnny’s band” ,”Get me outta here”, make me think on weaks fillers songs.Well , I repeat, I don’t know, I don’t expect anything, it is only a suspicion… I only hope this will be a magnificent album..

    Someone has read the comments on twitter about “Time for bedlam”? Everybody expecting the rest of the songs to be as strong as this.If all the album keep this level along the way, I am sure this will be the best DP’s Album in years.

    Erroll Arias says:

    Is impossible “Birds of Prey” to be a cover of UH’s.. If Gillan tries to sign the original version of this Song, he would fall dead on stage.. The actual Ian Gillan emulating Byron? Simply impossible!!

    I just checked the amazon-japan website, and for the “Time for bedlam” EP, it lists a song called “Paradise Bar” as well as an instrumental version of Uncommon Man and a rehearsal version of Hip Boots.

    Hey, when will this available to order in the US? So far nothing here.

    pete says:

    According to Amazon uk,the running time is only 45.50 minutes,which is VERY disappointing.I know it won’t affect the quality,but at least another 10 mins would be nice on a Deep Purple album.Not sure Hip Boots is the right choice,it’s live on youtube,a short messabout track really.Thoughts anyone?After the brilliance of Time for Bedlam,i’m a bit deflated at the moment,i agree with @8.Hope I’m wrong and it’s an absolute cracker!

    Re: Hip Boots

    I don’t think it was finalized when they played it live. I’m sure once Ezrin got his hands on it, the song was reworked. He wouldn’t let the song appear like that. However, there are some promising bits in the live performance…

    al says:

    I dont like some of the titles,and it seems like a ZZ TOP album (Hip Boots,One Night in Vegas,and All I’ve got is you,who sound like a single and a ballad song but I may be wrong) Anyway,I am going to soldiered on until April and Hope the album has the intensity and the sound of Time For Bedlam song.I loved Now What?! except It will be me and First sign of Madness which I didn’t care too much and sounded more like Gillan solo album and rock ‘n roll old school style.Just waiting,patiently until then, and hoping Roadhouse Blues is not the The Doors cover,which i think it is…but you never know.lol

    Hi Guys
    I listened to every live recording of ‘Hip Boots’ from last year DP shows and I think it’s rubbish by their standards.
    The song is just so weak in every aspect and I can’t understand the improvisation of Don and Steve on the organ and the guitar so they can make the song last a bit longer than 2 minutes.
    I am not negative but I am realistic.
    Can someone agree with the quality of this song material.

    completely agree with Adel @29… “Time for Bedlam” created such high expectations that after listinening songs like “Hip Boots ” I fear the album will be filled with a lot of weak tracks. And like @28 said : “sounded more like Gillan solo album and rock ‘n roll old school style”. Hope this won’t happen , but, the songs titles (“Paradise Bar” is another example of “empty” title) , the version of “Hip Boots” we actually know, etc.. All fill me with fears … I do not know.. I only expect that the intial expectations after listening the marvelous “Time for bedlam” to be real and don’t feel dissapointed after listening “Infinite”

    @31

    let’s just wait and see what the mighty Purple has in store after Time For Bedlam.I hope Ezrin “collected” the best pieces,titles suck and I am hoping the music behind the titles is good!

    DKT says:

    Oh ye of little faith! “I fear the album will be filled with a lot of weak tracks.” “Can someone agree with the quality of this song material.” “I don’t like some of the titles and it seems like a ZZ TOP album.” This negativity is based on what? Song titles and a trial run-through of “Hip Boots” that’s more than a year old? Assumptions that are based on next-to-nothing. “Time For Bedlam” is hardly an “iconic song title” but the song itself is, by all agreement, great!

    You should be ashamed.
