Deep Purple‘s next studio effort will be an album of covers, entitled “Turning To Crime”. Due on November 26, 2021 via earMUSIC, the LP will contain Deep Purple‘s versions of great rock classics and musical jewels — including songs originally recorded by Bob DylanFleetwood MacBob SegerCream and The Yardbirds — carefully chosen by each member of the band.

Produced by Bob Ezrin, “Turning To Crime” arrives only 15 months after “Whoosh!”, Deep Purple‘s 21st studio album, which received acclaim by critics who praised the creative strength of a band that continues evolving with every release, and prestigious chart achievements (third consecutive No. 1 in Germany, No. 4 in the U.K., and topped the U.S. Independent Album and Hard Music Albums charts).

Chaoszine had the honor to talk with one of rock’s most iconic and most influential vocalist of all time Ian Gillan via phone in late October and discuss about the pandemic time, “Turning To Crime” album, fan meet & greet as well as how does Gillan himself see the future of the band.
