Deep Purple have released a new song, “Nothing at All,” the third single from their upcoming 21st album, Whoosh!, due out on August 7.
The song finds Ian Gillan and his group tackling the concept of nothingness, dealing with it philosophically and through action.
The lyrics come out strongly against the damage caused to Mother Earth by humans.
“And the junk that sails out seven seas / Is very nearly up to my knees / When I hear about the doom and gloom/It’s around the corner and coming soon,” Gillan sings to the accompaniment of Steve Morse and Don Airey on electric guitar, and Hammond on the organ. “It’s nothing at all / And the old lady smiles / It’s nothing at all / Then she blew all the leaves off my tree.”
Deep Purple had previously released, “Throw My Bones” and “Man Alive,” two other tracks from the upcoming album, which was produced by Bob Ezrin. The band had originally planned to release the album in June.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Gillan said, “I remember very clearly Bob’s speech when we first met in Toronto. He wanted us to be like we are on stage and jam and improvise and make [songs] out of that and not worry about how long they are or any of those side issues. He was like, ‘Let’s do what Deep Purple does and it’ll all work out,’ and the results of that have become manifest.”
