Whitesnake will release a deluxe edition of 2015’s The Purple Album, their tribute to David Coverdale’s three-year stint in Deep Purple, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his debut with the group.

The collection arrives on Oct. 13 as a two-CD/Blu-ray set or a two-LP set. Both are available to preorder now. You can see the full track listing and watch the video for a newly remixed live version of “Burn” below.

The Purple Album: Special Gold Edition will feature a remixed and remastered version of the original album — comprising Deep Purple classics such as “Mistreated” and “Stormbringer” — along with previously unreleased recordings, including the 1972 four-song demo that landed Coverdale the Deep Purple gig. Other previously unreleased goodies include Coverdale’s demo ideas for the 1974 Stormbringer album, alternate mixes of six album tracks, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album and song-by-song commentary from Coverdale.

“I had no idea my mam had the tape,” Coverdale says of the 1972 audition demo in the new liner notes. “For me, to open my mam’s trunk of personal items, 30 years after her passing, was a gift from heaven.”

Coverdale was forced to pull Whitesnake off the road in July 2022 amid their farewell tour due to a multitude of health issues among the band. The frontman still intends to resume the tour, but he doesn’t know when.

"I really don't know [when we’ll be back onstage]," Coverdale told UCR in April. "I'll be 72 this year. But, you know, my passion is that of a much younger man, particularly with the new creative team that I have, working on these legacy projects and also new things at the same time. It's like bluebirds flying out of every orifice."
