Work in progress

Sadly, gone are the days when Roger graciously provided us with the studio updates on the progress of a new album. These days we have to resort to rumours and second hand info.

On November 2, 2019, Chameleon Studios Hamburg posted this picture to their Facebook feed:

Gillan and Glover at Chameleon studios in Hamburg, November 2 2019

The chap on the left is mixing engineer Eike Freese. So, the purpose of the visit could have been mixing the new album and/or finalizing vocal tracks. Or something else completely. Your guess is as good as mine.

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    Sorry to be rude. I think its realy arrogant to keep a tight lip on a album that is not going to sell millions. INFINITE was a great album but only sold in ten thousands figures in each of the countries that was top ten. Maybe I am wrong but my guess that Infinite only sold less than 100k copies world wide. So why all the securcy .
    Sorry if I offended anyone.
    Love and peace to you all.

    God bless Deep Purple. No doubt,the new tracks were layed down and recorded at the Tracking Room in Nashville USA under Bob Ezrin’s supervision as per Infinite. Can’t imagine these youngster’s guiding Ian through vocals and choures lines without Ezrins or Rogers overseeing. Big thanks to earmusic/edel for having faith in supporting the legends. Hope the boys can give us a last hurrah in the Land down Under. Cheers.

    Paul @1: he has not stopped communicating. but somehow, in the bad old days we had, for instance, this: https://www.thehighwaystar.com/members/final.html
    and now, in the age of multiple social media accounts managed by professional PR people, we get bubkis. by ‘we’ i assume fans in general, not specifically this website.

    @ 6 Infinite was awarded gold in Germany recently. So over 100000 copies in Germany alone.. if it makes you happier. 🙂

    @Adel Faragalla
    “Infinite” has sold more than 100,000 copies in Germany alone. It was awarded with a gold disc there only recently.

    Whilst Roger may not be communicating directly, the PR machine is clearly cranking into life given the short video clips of Roger and Bob which have been quietly dropped onto the DP Facebook page over the last few weeks…
