    I’m gonna keep my expectations for the new album in check.All the advance promo for InFinite led to a fairly big let-down for me.I play the documentary more than the CD.
    Hoping for better this time around, even though that title makes Bananas seem like a stroke of creative genius.

    On several shops the vinyl version is advertised as a double album. There’s also a limited edition on coloured vinyl exclusive to Nuclear Blast Mailorder. While the description tells it is on purple vinyl the link says “white vinyl”. So we’ll have to see.

    The vinyl box set includes the album on gatefold double vinyl and a mediabook with CD and DVD. There are also three ten inch vinyl records with yet unreleased live recordings from 2017, artprints and a T-shirt. So it seems very similar to the box set for Infinite, which I really like.

    My worst fears, and title, have come to life. Oh well, new Purple is new Purple. The music has got to better than the title.

    Long live Purple.

    Hope it’s good as Now What, Infinite was a let down. But why the DVD and not blu ray disc? Much better picture quality with the latter.

    ‘Time means nothing but time is all we ve got’ all we want is simple songs on the album as they are the ones that makes an impact.

    I like the art of the cover.
    Waiting to see if it will have a Japanese version with unreleased studio tracks.

    Nutking says:

    Looks like the 2xCD is in fact CD+DVD like earlier ‘deluxe’ editions from Infinite and Now What!? from what I understand there’s just 7 songs like most albums in the 60’s and 70’s lol

    Blackwood Richmore says:

    13 songs, including “And The Address”!.
    Deja vu?……..

    Title “WHOOSH” is not important, important is that we are all very happy for a new album from the greatest hard rock band. Long live deep Purple and ……some more “WHOOSH”-es!!!

    Looking forward to the new release by the mighty purps and to listening to it with an open mind, especially And the Address. It looks like the new album will have 13 songs:

    Throw My Bones
    Drop The Weapon
    We’re All The Same In The Dark
    Nothing At All
    No Need To Shout
    Step By Step
    What the What
    The Long Way Around
    The Power of the Moon
    Remission Possible
    Man Alive
    And the Address
    Dancing In My Sleep

    @22 Cover looks like the guy is suffering the same fate as the others did at the end of the Avengers: Infinity War.

    “Whoosh”…Blackmore is rolling over in his grave at the title of that….oh wait…he’s still alive…and probably doesn’t care!!

    There’s a song on the new album titled, And The Address.
    Sounds familiar….

    Kalle says:

    1. Throw My Bones
    2. Drop The Weapon
    3. We’re All The Same In The Dark
    4. Nothing At All
    5. No Need To Shout
    6. Step By Step
    7. What the What
    8. The Long Way Around
    9. The Power of the Moon
    10. Remission Possible
    11. Man Alive
    12. And the Address
    13. Dancing In My Sleep

    The title “And The Adress” reminds me, of course, of the “Shades Of DP”-album.
    As there is a 13th. song: I hope that this not means that “And The Adress” is the first and last Deep Purple Song.

    Also Deep Purple is just a “Woosh!” in the history of mankind.

    Well, at least it seem like the title is not on the cover.

    I found this on “dictionary.cambridge.org”:

    “With one powerful whoosh, a skilled sucker can defy the laws of gravity and make a token dance right up into his mouth.”

    rik_uk says:

    Bemusing artwork, it’s okay but the title is missing(?).

    I noticed a song listed as ‘And the Address’. Is this a cover from their first album or an original? And again the typography is reminiscent of their first album.

    “Whoosh, stars, rockets!”

    Kim Peters says:

    I like that the title is missing from the album cover, however, visually….we still see it.

    stoffer says:

    Seriously….bitching about the title?? The Purps have never been mainstream or pandered to a PC culture! Why start now? @26 well said! I can’t wait to enjoy new Purple music?!

    Bernhard Huebl says:

    I think the title “Whoosh” was inspired by the opening noise of “Fireball” (before the
    drums sets in) – in fact that was the air conditioning in the studio being switched on !

    GOD bless Deep Purple and the music they are giving to us all!!!
