    Rock icons Whitesnake are set to return with their twelfth studio album this spring. The Purple Album will be released in North America on May 19 via Frontiers Music SRL. The Purple Album has nothing to do with Prince. It is a re-imagination of classic songs from David Coverdale's time as the lead singer for Deep Purple's Mark 3 and Mark 4 studio albums.

    "It's a tribute. A homage. It's a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago," states Coverdale. "As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldn't have asked for better teachers. The University of Deep Purple was an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can't wait to play these songs in concert!"
