Mysterious single

Deep Purple Whoosh! RSD 2020 single cover artA limited edition 10″ single from the upcoming Whoosh! will be released on April 18 June 20 in conjunction with the German Record Store Day. The content of the single is still a mystery at the time of this writing, and all we have for the cover art is this low resolution image. The single will be available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

[Update March 13] The 2020 Record Store Day was originally scheduled for April 18, but has been postponed to June 20 due to to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

Thanks to Jörg and dirie for the heads up.

    it shows a lot about the album quality with those awful snippets that they are recycling old songs from the first album.Yikes! this band sounds like Ian Gillan back up band then Deep Purple

    Deep Purple inside their protective anti-virus self-contained environmental suits… safe from the covid 19 virus & anything else…
    They are advising us of the oncoming disasters that are going to sweep us away….
    Nature: 1. Human beings: 0.

    Still… at least we’ve got 10″ from Deep Purple to look forward to! (If we’re still here)… 😷😉

    Brandon Benwell if the songs are 3 minutes or 4 and Gillian is talking more than singing no need to listen to it …. starting with Whoosh title….

    The mystery goes on. I think it will grow on you just like a rash.

    Prediction: it will be a new song. It’ll be pretty good. It will also contain some recent live stuff and perhaps another new song.

    I like Infinite and Now What a lot and I assumed the 30 second critiques were just a bunch of Morse hating curmudgeonly coots.

    But the snippets don’t sound promising. I remember the 30 second snippet of Time For Bedlam came out I was super excited as it sounded great. This stuff mostly sounds like the songs on Infinite I’m not crazy about like Get Me Out of Here….

    I hope I’m wrong

    Perhaps this album is simply comprised of leftovers from the Infinite sessions, that have been worked on a little bit to bring them up to scratch. After all, Whoosh did seem to have been recorded fairly quickly.
    It seems to me that you people work yourselves up into a frenzy over these songs, as if your lives depended on them.
    I suggest that you all settle back & soften your expectations. These guys are just running down the clock now, more or less the same as RB has done with his Rainbow band.
    Take a chill pill, sit back & relax… play an old album or two. Be happy!.

    They have got too cozy with Ezrin , he has already stated that there is something on the album to keep all the band members happy. I know at their age time is precious but if after a writing session only 4 or 5 strong ideas come out , take time out and come back later fresh maybe with more . They just seem to whoosh their way through and work with some poor to average ideas to pad out an album. Now What and the opinion splitting Rapture of the Deep had probably the most depth in terms of ideas, with the latter suffering from bad production and a few stinkers on it.

    @13: “bunch of Morse-hating curmudgeonly coots” – LOL! : – )

    And if we all lock’em into one room together and play 24/7 Dixie Dregs REAL LOUD to them? Fall to your knees and repent if you please (in strange meters)!

    PS: I own them all.

    PPS: The Dixie Dregs albums I mean. Plus the Steve Morse Band ones.

    PPS: Once you bought Billy Cobham’s Spectrum as a teenager because some guy on there (you had never heard of) was now with your favorite band, there is really no going back …

    PPPS: My son dragged me to a Marcus King Band gig only recently. I go: “He sounds a bit like Tommy Bolin in places.” My son gives me a condescending look as only a young man to his father can, how could I dare to compare one of his mojo-drenched blues giants with anyone associated with, ugh, Deep Purple?! And then all of a sudden, in a lengthy jam, Marcus King – a 21 year old young man of considerable talent and with a decent record collection to boot – and his band start playing “Spectrum” off the eponymously titled Billy Cobham album from 1973!!! In a blasting rendition.

    : – )

    Role model parent I am, I did not gloat.

    Well, only a little.
