Whitesnake to release new record in 2018 and 30th year anniversary deluxe edition of self-titled album

Great news for Whitesnake as the group has partnered with Warner Music Group Worldwide and Rhino Entertainment to release both new and archival recordings in the future, which includes a 30th year anniversary deluxe edition of the 1987 released Whitesnake album as well as a brand new studio album, with the latter being anticipated for the spring of 2018.

Billboard spoke to Whitesnake‘s frontman David Coverdale and the following are excerpts from the article / interview:

“The Whitesnake album, which turned 30 in April, is the appropriate debut project under the new deal. The set launched the hit singles (and accompanying videos) “Here I Go Again” (Billboard Hot 100 No. 1), “Is This Love” (No. 2), “Give Me All Your Love” (No. 48) and “Still Of the Night” (No. 79) and the new editions — a four-CD/DVD Super Deluxe Edition and a two-disc Deluxe Edition — will feature plenty of bonuses, including some of Coverdale‘s demos with guitarist John Sykes.

“It was a lot of fun to do,” Coverdale says of the reissue, “because I don’t go back a lot. I kind of learn from the past to apply those lessons to the future and the present. But my gratitude for (the album) is beyond words. I’ve only ever gone into a studio to try to improve on the last record…There was no, ‘Right, I’m gonna sell 30-odd million fucking records!’ It was amazing, just amazing, so it’s great to revisit all of this.”

More archival reissues are planned for the future, while Coverdale and his main Whitesnake mates, guitarists Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra, have been convening for regular writing sessions towards an anticipated late spring of 2018 release — Whitesnake‘s first set of original material since 2011’s Forevermore. “I’m actually very excited about it because it’s the first opportunity both Reb and Joel and I have actually had to sit down and write together,” Coverdale says. “There’s a lot of what one would refer to as arena rock; Reb and I were talking the other night over dinner and he said, ‘Man, there’s so many songs here that no matter where we play — Portugal or Brazil or Tokyo — they’re gonna get this hook. They’re gonna be punching the fuckin’ air and have a great night.’ And I went, ‘Oh, absolutely — and more than usual,’ which is great. I can’t do throwaway shit. The only reason I’m doing this record are the songs are gonna be a great Whitesnake album for Whitesnake fans — and the band. It’s very exciting.””
