LOVE SONGS

15-Track Collection Presents Revisited, Remixed
And Remastered Versions Of The Band’s Best Love Songs,
Plus Unreleased Tracks From David Coverdale’s Into The LIGHT

Available From Rhino On CD, 2-LP 180-gram Red Vinyl,
And Digitally On November 6

LOS ANGELES – Whitesnake brings together some of the most-passionate music of its multi-platinum career on LOVE SONGS, a new collection that contains remixed and remastered versions of the group’s best love songs. It’s the second release in the band’s “Red, White and Blues Trilogy,” a series of compilations organized by musical themes that began this summer with The ROCK Album (white) and will conclude next year with The BLUES Album (blue).

The new collection includes a mix of hits and deep tracks that were originally released between 1987 and 2011 on five Whitesnake studio albums and David Coverdale’s third solo album, Into the LIGHT. Available for pre-order now, LOVE SONGS will be released on November 6 as a CD , as a double-LP set pressed on 180-gram red vinyl, and digitally. The album will also be available via Rhino.com.

 

Like The ROCK Album, Coverdale says all the tracks on LOVE 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,” he explains.

Coverdale continues, “As most of you know, pretty much all the songs I write are love songs in some way, shape or form. These are some of my favorites. Not all are ballads. Some are out and out rockers with powerful romantic themes…and of course…include heavy breathing in all of them!!”

A New 2020 Remix Of Smash Hit “Is This Love” Is Out Now

A fresh, new remix of one of Whitesnake’s biggest hits, “Is This Love” (2020 Remix) from the band’s multi-platinum self-titled album, is available today. Released in October 1987 as the follow-up to the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” “Is This Love” would peak at #2 on the U.S. singles chart, making it the second-biggest hit of the band’s career. The group’s next album, the platinum-certified Slip of the Tongue (1989), is represented here by the hit singles “The Deeper The Love” and “Now You’re Gone.”

In addition to the album tracks “Don’t You Cry” and “Midnight Blue,” the set also introduces three previously unreleased outtakes from the Into the LIGHT album sessions: “With All Of My Heart,” “Yours For The Asking,” and “Let’s Talk It Over.” The albums Restless Heart (1997), Good to Be Bad (2008), and Forevermore (2011) are also represented on the compilation with multiple tracks (“Too Many Tears,” “Summer Rain,” and “Easier Said Than Done”).

In the coming months, some of the band’s most adored MTV-era hit videos will be released on Whitesnake’s YouTube channel in brand new HD, including a fan-requested promotional video for the song “Easier Said Than Done” from the Forevermore album.

    Well spank my bottom until it turns RED.

    Day one for me,as it has been since 1981….

    Great list! But, by my opinion, one great song is missing: Sailing Ships. That is amazing song!

  • Christine

    Another great album to look forward to buying when it’s released

  • Garry

    Agreed.

    My only comment, is this could have easily been a 2 cd set, and neither would leave my stereo for months at a time – at least until the next WS release. Keep it coming David – and if you haven’t already – start working on the next all new album to followup Flesh & Blood with – it’s been far too long for this member of the WS choir!

    Love it but one of my faves was omitted. Not sure why but FOREVERMORE is one that should definitely be on the CD/Album!

    I would have liked to see ‘ain’t no love- in the heart of the city’ and Northwinds on there but I guess we all have our own favorites

    I just keep missing the really old WS songs. The Last three albums should not have been covered in these collections.

    Whitesnake are the only ones who can have remixes and they sound so different in a good way.
    Hope we get a doug Aldrich set!

    So, none of the old songs at all? It’s hard to see this as very representative without at least some of the early songs.

    For those complaining about the omission of early Whitesnake tracks, I interviewed David when ‘The Rock Album’ came out and he told me then he would love nothing better than to revisit those albums, but due to various record label red tape, he can’t touch anything that came before ‘Slide It In’.

    Can’t wait for this to come out! just wish Looking For Love had made the cut but maybe that will be on The Blues Album? Love all the songs covered here. And the video for Is This Love! AWESOME! Thank you David for doing this for us! This will be the icing on the cake for my Whitesnake collection! I have EVERY album you’ve ever done! Love You!

    David doesn’t own the rights to any of the Sunburst recordings, but I believe he is close to acquiring Northwinds.

    Great shame there are legal restrictions preventing the inclusion of the back catalogue of Only my soul, Blindman, Sailing ships etc. Would have been nice to see The last note of freedom , which hasn’t appeared on any of the Whitesnake albums previously.

  • Piotr L.

    9/22/2020

    There are no restrictions to put out Sailing Ships or Looking For Love.
    Just that The artist choose differently.
    Myself would love to see Sail Away (version 2015) on blues cd. Please!

    David, you need to re release one of your gretaest songs all time. You need to include it in the live setlist too. THE LAST NOT OF FREEDOM. You thank me later. Wainting patiently on this “new” album. All the best for you, and Whitesnake.

    Would it not have been better to have released this album in February next year? Think about it. I bet it would have charted pretty high if you’d done that. The Blues album should have been next… THEN the Love album. Oh well.

  • Miguel Gomes

    9/27/2020

    Excellent, but for me one very important missing…BLINDMAN.
    Cheers.

    With such a great catalogue of love songs it’s hard to pick. Personally I really think FOREVERMORE should have been on here. In my opinion one of the all-time great Whitesnake songs from one of your very best albums of the same name.

    Hello, I would like to verify something with you if it’s ok. From October 2019 to December 2019 , I was receiving all of David Coverdale’s tweets as messages sent directly to my phone. Can you tell me, as I need to know for security reasons, has hid official page ever been hacked where those tweets did not come from him? I just want to be sure it was him sending them and not someone posing as him. If you could please verify that if it came from official page, and it was him or he authorized them. Thanks.
