Whitesnake has announced the upcoming release of an album featuring a compilation of their blues songs.
The album — called, appropriately, “The Blues Album” — is the third release in the band’s Red, White and Blues trilogy. The first entry, “The Rock Album,” represented white and last year’s “Love Songs” represented red.
“Blues to me is a beautiful word that describes emotional expression — feelings of sadness, loneliness, emptiness,” says vocalist David Coverdale. “But also those that express great joy, celebration and dance, sexiness and love.” The album is due February 19th.
