Northwinds is the title of the second solo album by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, released in early 1978.
Originally entitled North Winds, the album leans more towards blues-based rock. Coverdale also touched on the genre in his previous album.
The original release of Northwinds contained eight tracks, with two more songs added on recent reissues. Four tracks (Keep on Giving Me Love, Queen of Hearts, Only My Soul, Breakdown) from this album would later be combined with the tracks from the EP Snakebite from his band Whitesnake, to form the album Snakebite.
A number of other titles, written by David Coverdale, were published at the time, which have yet to be released. The titles include “It Would Be Nice”, “Love’s A Crazy Game”, and “Till The Sun Doesn’t Shine Anymore”.
