DEEP PURPLE have released a video for their version of the 1966 Arthur Lee and Love track, "7 and 7 Is", the lead single from their forthcoming album "Turning To Crime."

The project came about as a result of the Covid pandemic, as the band were forced to cancel all planned activities after the release of 2020's "Whoosh!"; spending their time in isolation without being able to play together in person, an idea came up the group had actually been playing with for years: making a record packed with songs written and originally performed by other artists."
Due on November 26 via earMUSIC, the LP will contain DEEP PURPLE's versions of great rock classics and musical jewels — including songs originally recorded by Bob DylanFLEETWOOD MACBob SegerCREAM and THE YARDBIRDS — carefully chosen by each member of the band.
