EEP PURPLE: Back to Work
Deep Purple released Rapture of the Deep in 2005 and then waited eight years for its follow-up, Now What? Bassist Roger Waters says the won’t be nearly as long this time.
He writes on the band’s Facebook page, “At this point in life I don’t want to wait another eight years before the next album, none of us do. The good experience that came from the recording of Now What has whetted our appetites for doing another one with [producer] Bob Ezrin. We will have a writing/jamming session very soon.” Glover also says they filmed and recorded their recent show in Tokyo for a forthcoming release.
