After a couple of teasers (see below), Deep Purple have finally pushed a full track out from the Infinite album project, titled Time For Bedlam. It seems to have promise, a blend of vintage Purple and a more modern sound, with IG getting quietly worked up, though I hope the production sound on the drums is better when we get to hear it in CD quality.
This will be the lead in to the album, and is to be released as an “EP” on February 3rd (formats not yet known, laminated card sleeve unlikely) with non-album extras. I love the way the press release speaks of it about to “hit the shops”, to which many will reply “what shops?!”
They have scheduled the album now for as late as April 7th 2017, which kind of suggests a second single may be on the way.
There is a sort of label made video of ice-breakers charging around, while IG has taken on Stephen Hawking to try and have a go at explaining the album title…
Thanks to Lutz Reinert, Tim Summers and many more for the heads up.
