On Friday, David Coverdale and his long-running rock band Whitesnake returned with a new studio album, Flesh & Blood. The record was in the works for a while, and was previewed over the past months with some very loud and very rockin’ songs — but also a bit of variety, style-wise.

To that end, guitarist Joel Hoekstra recently told Rock Cellar’s Michael Mascioni about the process that went into recording Flesh & Blood:

“I think the new album is influenced by every era of Whitesnake, and all eras of the band are represented on the album. Reb and I threw a lot of ideas at David for the new album, and he threw a lot of ideas at us.  I think some of the bonus songs on the album’s deluxe edition take the band in some new directions.  Ultimately, David made the decision on the mix of songs on the album — he steers the ship.”

Stream the record below, via Spotify:
