WHITESNAKE’s David Coverdale Talks About “Still Of The Night” Leading Off Legendary 1987 Album - “I Don't Compromise, I Don't Write Singles”

Deep Purple’s official YouTube channel has a vintage chat between Whitesnake's David Coverdale and interviewer/journalist Mick Wall, looking back at the band’s peak album from 1987, Whitesnake and the “Still Of The Night” video. About leading off with such a lengthy first single Coverdale says:

“I don't compromise, I don't write singles. The entire new album has been arranged to give Whitesnake a brand new stage show. It's like a live show. I'm a songwriter first and all the songs are arranged to have legs to walk straight off the disc and into arenas and concert halls.”

A 30th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition of Whitesnake’s 1987 album will be released on October 6th. A new video trailer for for the upcoming release can be found below.

The 30th anniversary edition of the 8x Platinum 1987 album will include unreleased studio, live and video material.
