Ian Gillan, Tony Iommi: WhoCares Album Samples Available

Ian Gillan and Tony Iommi took everybody by surprise in 2011 by releasing a charity single, "Out Of My Mind", renewing the collaboration that led the pair to record an album in 1984, "Born Again", under the Black Sabbath moniker.

For the occasion, the two rock legends called a few friends and were soon joined byJason Newsted, Jon Lord  and Nicko McBrain. Not only jamming together for the sheer fun of things, this new project has united for a cause - rebuilding and helping the music school in Gyumari, Armenia. The single was a joyful and inspired moment. Iommi and Gillan have now decided to make WhoCares an album for their devoted fans. Classic songs and a lot of rarities and unreleased material in two CDs of fantastic rare music.

The album is set for release on July 13 via earMUSIC..
