Whitesnake

Whitesnake have released a making-of video showing how they created the promo for their new single Shut Up & Kiss Me.

The band released the track on Valentine’s Day (opens in new tab) and it’ll appear on their highly anticipated new studio album Flesh & Blood.

It’ll be released on May 10 via Frontiers Music srl on CD, CD/DVD Deluxe Edition, LP, Box Set, and on digital and streaming platforms.

Speaking about the promo, vocalist David Coverdale says: “My video director and creative partner Tyler Bourns and I discussed a great storyline for the video, which involves a surprise guest: My fabulous old white Jaguar. 

“We ended up cleaning and detailing it, as it has been in storage since I moved to Lake Tahoe. Then we dusted off my old turquoise silk jacket from the original Here I Go Again video and I was thinking, ‘Man, this is going to be fun!’

“It’s a respectful acknowledgment and positive nod to the past, just fun stuff.”

Coverdale in joined in the lineup by guitarists Joel Hoekstra and Reb Beach, bassist Michael Devin, drummer Tommy Aldridge and keyboardist Michele Luppi.

Also out in May is a reissue of Whitesnake's 1984 album Slide It In. Earlier this week, Coverdale posted a 10-minute unboxing video of the deluxe edition (opens in new tab).
