Deep Purple
(UK) / December 16, 2012

Forthcoming release:

Deep Purple's new studio CD will be released in April 2013. Says frontman Ian Gillan: "The title of our new album is still a question mark to all of us... We have recorded a new album, and it's a fantastic collection of songs. At the moment that's the only affirmative point we can offer.” After various songwriting sessions in Europe, the band recorded and mixed the album in Nashville with producer Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Kiss, et al). The album is rumored to be the perfect match from the original spirit of ‘70s Deep Purple, and a fresh and modern production.

    Special offer (coming from the label’s manager Leonardo Pavcovic):

    Dear MoonJune Friends,
    After an amazing success of this great promotional compilation in every single corner of the world, I have decided to extend this promotional sale of high res digital downloads via
    BandCamp until January 2, 2013, and now for slightly higher price, of Only $2 (minimal contribution). Fans can buy legal downloads in the following, better quality formats: MP3 320, FLAC, MP3 VBR (V0), AAC, Ogg Vorbis or ALAC. The quality is far better than what iTunes, Amazon mp3, etc are offering and which is mostly in mp3 format and 192kb only. This compilation features almost 7hrs of music and/or 60 tunes (1 from each MJR's catalog, 1 from each Nevermore/Copernicus catalog, and 1 each from ZoZe Music catalog). You can pay whatever You like, and as much You can afford ($2.00 for 60 tunes / 7hrs of music is a minimum suggested donation). This offer is valid until January 2, 2013. Additionally, a selected number of MJR albums are available at the label’s promotional price of $5 per album, also until Jan 2, 2013. Hopefully this compilation will encourage You to support even more a truly independent label and all hard working artists on the label, – purchasing MoonJune Records' physical product - CDs - , at a very reasonable price and always with free shipping worldwide, or, legally downloading high resolution digital file. MJR will offer you similar promotional compilations almost on monthly basis.
