Frontman Ian Gillan revealed the outfit are currently working on their 20th studio album in a Portuguese studio somewhere in the Algarve.

Gillan tells Zeitung:

"The whole band is here. We have a studio in the Algarve where we're working on new songs.”

In the evening, we take a sip of good red wine and enjoy the tranquility,” he added. 

I'm woken up at dawn by a rooster in the neighbourhood and I get up when it gets light. When it gets dark in the evening, I go to bed. It's a no frills life; but it's a good life down here."

Deep Purple are currently taking a short break from their European tour in a bid to complete the songwriting sessions are expected to lead to the group’s 20th studio album, which will also be the follow-up to 2013’s “NOW What?!”
