Listen to Whitesnake’s 2019 remix of Love Ain’t No Stranger

Whitesnake have released a 2019 remix of their track Love Ain’t No Stranger.

The new version will appear on the upcoming Slide It In reissue which will not only feature alternative mixes, music videos and previously unreleased live and studio cuts, but will also see the UK and US versions being brought together for the first time.

It’ll be released this Friday (March 8) on CD, 2CD, 2LP on digital and streaming platforms, and as a seven-disc box set titled The Ultimate Special Edition, to mark the record’s 35th anniversary.

Whitesnake previously released a live version on Ready An' Willing from the reissue.

Last week, frontman David Coverdale shared a 10-minute video of him unboxing the special edition where he spoke about the new remix.

He said: “It’s fascinating for me on an emotional level because, as most of you know, 50% of this band passed away.

“It was just such joy to listen to their work from the 24-track transfers, just to hear Jon Lord’s solo, or Mel Galley singing, or Cozy Powell’s thunderous, Panzer Division attack force on the drums. It really is terrific. It’s very fresh, it’s very now.”

Whitesnake are also preparing to release their new studio album Flesh & Blood, which will arrive on May 10 via Frontiers Music srl. The record will feature the lead single Shut Up & Kiss Me.
