Jon Lord will release a classical album, Concerto for Group and Orchestra, recorded by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, sometime in September.
The LP features a host of guests alongside Lord and the Philharmonic, including Bruce Dickinson, Joe Bonamassa and Steve Morse, along with Jon's house singers, Steve Balsamo and Kasia Laska.
The original version premiered in 1969 and got over a hundred performances. The new version was recorded by a team from Abbey Road Studios.
The recording was conducted by Paul Mann, whose history with the concerto includes its 30th anniversary performance at the Royal Albert Hall in 1999 and Deep Purple's performance of it on their 2000-01 world tour.
Concerto for Group and Orchestra will be packaged with a DVD documentary.
