Deep Purple Confirm Release Date and Track Listing for New Album, ‘inFinite’
Deep Purple have confirmed the release date for their new album and unveiled the track listing. inFinite will come out on April 7 and feature 10 songs, including the lead single “Time for Bedlam,” which premiered in January.
You can see the track listing for the album, Deep Purple’s 20th studio record, below. The final song on the album is “Roadhouse Blues,” a cover of the Doors‘ classic song from 1970, which Deep Purple have performed in concert.
The lineup for inFinite includes classic-era band members Ian Gillan (vocals), Ian Paice (drums) and Roger Glover (bass), along with guitarist Steve Morse and keyboardist Don Airey. This will be the fifth record by the current lineup. The album was produced by Bob Ezrin, who’s worked on albums by Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd during his long career.
Deep Purple will be hitting the road in support of the album with the Long Goodbye Tour, which kicks off in Bucharest on May 13. On Aug. 12, the band will join Cooper for a U.S. tour that starts in Las Vegas and ends in Cincinnati a month later. You can see those dates below.
“If you take it literally, you may, quite reasonably, think the ‘finite’ part of the word describes the life of Deep Purple, with a clear beginning and a nebulous end; but what of the ‘in’ bit?” asked Gillan in a press release announcing the album, in an attempt to clarify the album and tour’s names. “The word ‘infinite’ is a three-dimensional double-edged sword. It describes something that goes on forever in all directions. … The universe is infinite, which means it will never end, and also means that it never started, and the corollary to that of course is that we don’t exist.”
