Whitesnake will release a new collection next month that features remixed and remastered versions of the English rock band’s best blues-rock songs.
The 14-track collection, titled The Blues Album, is the third in the band’s “Red, White and Blues Trilogy.”
The first two editions in the series of compilations organized by musical themes are titled Love Songs (red) and The Rock Album (white).
The Blues Album is available for pre-order now and will be available on February 19 digitally and on CD and as a double-LP set pressed on 180-gram, blue vinyl. All the tracks on this album have been revisited, remixed, and remastered.
Whitesnake’s singer-songwriter David Coverdale says, the music reflects how blues artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and the three Kings (Albert, B.B. and Freddie) continue to inspire him.
In the album’s liner notes, he writes, “It’s hard to find the words to show how profoundly they connected with my soul. But ‘blues’ to me is a beautiful word that describes emotional expression… feelings, be it feelings of sadness, loneliness, emptiness… but, also those that express great joy, celebration and dance, sexiness and Love!!!”
The new compilation delivers a mix of hits and deep tracks that originally appeared between 1984 and 2011 on six Whitesnake studio albums and Coverdale’s solo album, Into the Light.
The Blues Album showcases two of the band’s biggest hit songs: “Slow An’ Easy,” and a new guitar based remix of “Give Me All Your Love.”
