According to a posting on the Deep Purple Appreciation Society web site, it looks as if DEEP PURPLE singer Ian Gillan's new solo album, "One Eye On Morocco", is now due out in January 2009. The album sees him reunited with Steve Morris, who worked on the 1998 CD "Dreamcatcher" and earlier projects. This set follows Ian's ambitious "Gillan's Inn" project, which he released to celebrate 40 years in the music business. The CD, which came out in April 2006, spans the four decades of Gillan's professional life and features some of his friends as guest performers, including his mates in DEEP PURPLE, the GOO GOO DOLLS, and singer-guitarist Jeff Healey, among many others.
"Gillan's Inn" was released as a DualDisc, and the DVD side has a track-by-track commentary from Gillan, along with scenes from the recording sessions, rare live footage, and other extras.
