Whitesnake will issue a new collection of remixed and remastered songs as The Rock Album, the first in a series of planned compilations around specific themes.

The songs on The Rock Album were originally issued between 1984 and 2011 and are pulled from six Whitesnake studio albums. The 16-track selection includes ‘Love Ain’t No Stranger’, ‘Judgement Day’, ‘Still of the Night’, ‘Give Me All Your Love’ and ‘Here I Go Again.’ This new collection also plays loose with the definition of ‘Whitesnake’ by including ‘She Give Me’, from David Coverdale’s 2000 solo album, Into the Light.

According to Coverdale, “all the songs have been revisited, remixed and remastered. Some have been musically embellished where my co-producer Michael McIntyre, my new mixer Christopher Collier and I felt it appropriate or necessary to bring out the best in these songs.” An example of this is that The Rock Album includes a remixed version of ‘All Or Nothing’ (from Slide It In) that features additional guitars pulled from the original multi-track tapes, plus an alternate arrangement of ‘Tell Me How’ from Forevermore.

The collection features the debut of ‘Always The Same’, a previously unreleased song that was recorded during the 2019 sessions for Flesh & Blood. A previously unreleased song recorded during the 2019 sessions for Flesh & Blood.  Available on The Rock Album, a new collection that features revisited, remixed and remastered versions of the group’s best rock songs!

The Rock Album is the first release in the ‘Red, White and Blues Trilogy’. Forthcoming collections will be Love Songs (red) and The Blues Album (blue, obviously!). The Rock Album is pressed on double white vinyl, so clearly the other compilations will follow suit with their respective colours.

The Rock Album will be released on 19th June 2020.
