Deep Purple has recently released a video footage of their rehearsal performance for German television of the 1966 Arthur Lee and Love track, “7 and 7 Is.” The video debuted on earMUSIC label’s official YouTube channel.
Deep Purple filmed the video in a warehouse in Germany, where they also did the cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Oh Well.”
The band stated:
“This is a previously unreleased version, recorded in November 2021 during a promotional and press tour of Germany for the latest album.
“It was during this same trip that the video for Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Oh Well’ was filmed.”
The song appears on the band’s latest album, “Turning To Crime” produced by Bob Ezrin. The album was recorded remotely during the COVID-19 lockdown in Nashville, TN, and was released last November 2021. It was their first studio album entirely made of songs not written by the band and previously recorded by other artists.
The album consists of 12 tracks including versions of Bob Dylan‘s “Watching the River Flow,” Little Feat‘s “Dixie Chicken,” The Yardbirds‘ “Shapes of Things,” Cream‘s “White Room” and more.
Deep Purple has launched a website dedicated to the new album where you can order it, TurningtoCrime.com.
Last month, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers kicked off its 2022 tour itinerary with a pair of concerts in Florida. They also took part in the latest edition of the Rock Legends Cruise. Deep Purple will be in a May 22 show in Tel Aviv, Israel, that will be followed by a series a European concert.
