Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Deep Purple were forced to cancel all activities the band had planned after the successful release of their latest album “Whoosh!”. Spending their time in isolation without being able to play together in person, an idea came up that the band had actually been playing with for years: making a record packed with songs written and originally performed by other artists. What would be a better time for doing this than now? So, from their home studios, the band recorded a new album unlike any other they have ever made before, titled “Turning To Crime”. Have a listen to the first single “7 And 7 Is”, out today on all digital platforms, and head over to www.turningtocrime.com to receive lots of information, pre-order options, and get the chance to receive a very extraordinary goodie! “Turning To Crime” will be out November 26th.
“Take five unemployed musicians under house arrest, add a smattering of technology, mix in a spoonful of songs that shaped us over the years, bake for a few months and this dish is the result. Serve with a pinch of salt and play loud! ” – Deep Purple
