Whitesnake: The Rock Album

Revisited, Remixed And Remastered Versions
Of The Band’s Best Rock Songs
Released On CD And White Vinyl On June 19

Previously Unreleased Song “Always The Same” Available Today

Whitesnake will bring together some of their hardest-hitting songs of its multi-platinum career on The ROCK Album, a new collection that features revisited, remixed and remastered versions of the group’s best ROCK songs. The album is the first release in the band’s “Red, White and Blues Trilogy,” a series of fresh, new collections organized by musical themes that will include: Love Songs (red), The ROCK Album (white) and The BLUES Album (blue).

THE ROCK ALBUM became available on June 19, 2020 on CD, and as a double-LP set pressed on 180-gram, white vinyl and is available for order now. The music also will be available through digital and streaming services. The collection features the debut of “Always The Same,” a previously unreleased song that was recorded during the 2019 sessions for Flesh & Blood.

In the album’s liner notes, Whitesnake founder and lead singer David Coverdale writes: “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.”

THE ROCK ALBUM spans over three decades with songs originally released between 1984 and 2011 on six Whitesnake studio albums. One track – “She Give Me” – is taken from Coverdale’s 2000 solo album, Into the Light.

The group’s music from the 1980s is well represented by “Love Ain’t No Stranger” from Slide It In (1984) and “Judgement Day” from Slip of the Tongue (1989), as well as “Still Of The Night,” “Give Me All Your Love” and the #1 smash “Here I Go Again” from Whitesnake’s 1987 self-titled album, which has been certified mega-platinum.

Restless Heart (1997) gets its due on the collection with four songs, including the blistering “Can’t Stop Now.” THE ROCK ALBUM also features music from 2008’s Good to Be Bad (“Best Years” and “Can’t You Hear The Wind Blow”), in addition to the title track from 2011’s Forevermore. Other highlights from THE ROCK ALBUM include a remixed version of “All Or Nothing” that features additional guitars pulled from the original multi-track tapes, plus an alternate arrangement of “Tell Me How” from Forevermore.

    Thank you for letting me about this album. I will buy it on Amazon.

  • Steve Lisicki


    Why did Always The Same not make it onto the original album DC, are there anymore hidden gems like this?

  • Andy Hanson


    Should be interesting. The remix disc of the Slide It In box was a standout. Any news on the planned Restless Heart reissue? There was some good stuff played live on that tour I recall. Cheers.

  • Tiara


    Always the same…oh my..what a gem! Typical classic WS it! How THAT never appeared on Flesh and Blood??!!! Will certainly order the Vinyl..great addition to my collection.And in times of Trouble..with NO touring we all need to support our Band as good as we can!

    Always the Same will be my tune of this summer… love it already and it should have been on the F&B album ahead of a few other tunes for sure! A gem and I hope there are more for the next two compilations that will be coming out..

  • Gill Howell


    I’d love to be able to buy this on cd. I haven’t had a record player for a long time and although I’m perfectly capable of streaming music having used computers since the mid 1980’s I much prefer an actual cd to add to my iPod classic via my laptop. Much of the time I’m listening to music I’m in on a bus in rural Cornwall with no mobile signal so my “dinosaur method” works superbly.

  • alejandro


    I am from Argentina I was on the flesh and blood tour in Buenos Aires last October, I liked the new song as well as the previous album … I hope there are more debut songs

  • Igor


    Yesterday I heard this song for the first time. Amazing!!! I listened to it several times. Thank You “Whitesnake” !!!

  • Andy Simpson


    It’s available on Qobuz Digital Store to pre-order in glorious 24/96 hi res audio or 16 bit CD for those who buy digitally.

  • Andy Simpson


    DC you need to let Chris loose on a best of Live album as well. The guy is a genius his Slide It In remix was such a standout effort it blew all other versions out of the water. Looking forward to the Blues 🙂

  • Bruce


    Hi DC,
    would you please make the Blues Album a one of a Kind experience of material only from the pre-SLIDE IT IN era. There is a high demand for a fresh collection of that material!
    By my loving heart: We don’t need an umpteenth Collection of post 1984!
    Love you David since 1974 BURRRN!!!

  • Eams


    The problem with Pre 1984 stuff, I believe, is that DC doesn’t own it. This is why there have been no Super(b) box set releases pre Slide It In. A shame.

  • Robert


    During this time maybe for the fans the band could sign the pre orders some artists are doing it already it’s a nice touch during these hard times

  • Ricardo Maia


    Dear Mr. David Coverdale;

    A full Restless Heart Deluxe edition would be fantastic, as well as a Coverdale/Page Deluxe box set!

    I will be getting my copy from my local record store to try and keep it going rather than the big boys wiping them out

  • Jock


    Got the album yesterday, very impressed I have to say. Great choice of songs and the ‘lick of paint’ each song received was just right. Looking forward to the next two of the trilogy in due course.
    I wish DC all the best for his upcoming surgery. I’m hoping we see him and the boys back on the road once he’s fully fit.

    thanks david ,i love the new album !

    Love Restless Heart, Anything You Want, and Judgement Day … hope we get a video for Judgement Day… I also love the SOTT 30th box with all the cool demos … Cool to hear Vandenberg play those songs – love his sound on Slip of the Tongue song demo itself – and there is a demo of Judge ment Day where you hear Vai and Vandenberg taking solos … the Judgement Day extended solo is great – it also needs a video …

  • NOBU


    I read the interview for the August 2020 issue of “BURRN!” published in Japan.
    To David’s words, to music and those involved, and to Japanese fans
    I was really moved by the feeling of love for me!

    Thinking about future projects of WHITESNAKE, even in such a pandemic
    I could feel hope and fun!

    Everyone can feel relieved, no need to worry,
    I sincerely hope that you can watch WHITE SNAKE live in Japan!

    Please take good care of yourself.
