Whitesnake 2014

Speaking in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Whitesnake vocalist David Coverdale revealed their next album plans. According to him, they are planning to release their new album in 2018.

Here’s the statement:

“We’ve never had such an immense amount of positive material. I’ve worked, for the first time as writers, with [guitarists] Reb Beach and with Joel Hoekstra. Because when Joel came in, we were doing ‘The Purple Album,’ of course. And not only do we have great Coverdale/Hoekstra and Coverdale/Beach songs, but we have the three of us combining [as writers].

The songs are fucking excellent. We have 18 or 19 extraordinarily positive, potent, juicy classic Whitesnake songs, from balls-to-the-wall [rockers] to blues, to epics to ballads.

It’s kickass. It’s definitely got me fluffed up. That will be [coming out in] late spring next year. We’re looking at getting out [on tour] in the U.S. around June, so probably May.”
