The Purple Album is the twelfth studio album by British hard rock band Whitesnake, released in April 2015 by Frontiers Records.

The album contains remakes of songs from Deep Purple’s Mark III and Mark IV lineups, i.e. when David Coverdale was a member.

The Purple Album starts with Burn, the ultimate classic that was often included in Whitesnake concert set lists. The revamped rendition assaults with a sharp, metallic, twin guitar formula. You Fool No One has a massive, modern sound. but the funky-ish groove of the original is nevertheless preserved here.

Love Child, much heavier and guitar-oriented than the Come Taste The Band original sounds contemporary, bluesy and simply excellent. Sail Away has been turned into a raw, acoustic piece, stripped it down to the basics added a whole new dimension to the 1974 classic.

The Gypsy and Lady Double Dealer are not as drastically revamped, a bit heavier in comparison with the originals.

Mistreated retains its bluesy, soulful, emotional greatness, while Holy Man receives an impressive acoustic re-arrangement.

Stormbringer which, with a rough metal vibe to it with its raucous flurry of guitars, somehow corresponds with the opening Burn.

The Purple Album split fans into two camps, the older Purple die-hards, calling the concept sacrilege, and then those open to reinterpretations of old classics, importantly by the man that wrote / performed them.

This Double LP on 180 Gram heavyweight vinyl includes two bonus tracks, comes in a Gatefold sleeve and was pressed in Europe.
