In January this year, guitarist Morse said that Deep Purple were planning a new album, which would be the follow-up to 2017’s InFinite.

Speaking with Andertons Music Co. at the NAMM show in Anaheim, Morse said: “We’re starting two albums – one with Flying Colors and one with Deep Purple.

Asked if the band would tour around the world in support of the record, Morse replied: “I don’t know. This year, I think it might be US, but there's nothing booked for sure. I'm running on rumour power!”

In September 2018, Deep Purple’s Machine HeadWho Do We Think We Are?BurnStormbringerCome Taste The BandMade In JapanMade In Europe and Last Concert In Japan were remastered and released on purple vinyl.

Last week, Dipak Rao – a former director of Deep Purple’s royalty companies Deep Purple Overseas Ltd and HEC Enterprises Ltd – was jailed fox six years and four months for taking £2.4 million from the firms’ accounts.
