Whitesnake have announced the Oct. 19 release of Unzipped, a collection of rare and unreleased acoustic performances, recorded over the past two decades.

Unzipped will be available in a number of different formats, including single-CD; double-CD and double-vinyl-LP versions; streaming and electronic formats; and a “Super Deluxe” five-CD/DVD set. The latter will include Starkers in Tokyo, a 1997 Japan-only release that will make its North American debut in this package.

"These songs are some of the most personal I've been involved with through my almost five decades as a professional musician, singer and composer,” frontman David Coverdale said. “This is me at my most unguarded ... innocent ... writing, as I still do, for the fun ... the expression ... the poetry ... all LOVE songs."

Disc One of the set contains more recent material from Whitesnake’s Good to Be Bad and Forevermore records, as well as songs like “Love Is Blind,” from Coverdale’s 2000 solo album, Into the Light. All 11 tracks from the first disc will be available in all formats.

The second disc contains Starkers in Tokyo, an album culled from an unplugged concert (“starkers” is British slang for “naked”) Coverdale and guitarist Adrian Vandenberg played in Tokyo in 1997. All facets of Coverdale's career are represented, from his days in Deep Purple ("Soldier of Fortune") and his solo albums ("Too Many Tears") to his Whitesnake hits “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love.” The Starkers album will be available on the double-CD and double-LP configurations, in addition to the Disc One material.

The DVD included in the “Super Deluxe” edition contains a trove of live, unplugged performances from around the world, including a complete acoustic show recorded at the Cutting Room in New York in 2008 and the Starkers in Tokyo concert video, remixed in 5.1 and stereo. Interview and bootleg footage round out the DVD.

Whitesnake just wrapped up their summer Juke Box Heroes tour with Foreigner and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening. Whitesnake have three more scheduled dates on their itinerary, including a headlining slot Aug. 11 on the third day of Cannafest 2018 in Grand Forks, British Columbia, Canada.
