English singer/guitarist Billy Morrison’s new song “Gods” features a guest appearance by Ozzy Osbourne (hear it below). The track is taken from Morrison’s second solo album, “God Shaped Hole”, which was released Friday, October 23 via his own King Mob Music label.

Morrison — who currently plays guitar in Billy Idol’s band and co-wrote songs on Idol’s latest album — is joined by Idol bandmates Steve Stevens and Erik Eldenius, Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro and Ozzy (lead vocals on “Gods”, a Morrison/Osbourne co-write) for the new album. “God Shaped Hole” — co-produced by Morrisson and Erik Eldenius — was mixed by Mike Clink (who produced GN’R’ classic debut album, “Appetite For Destruction”) and John Spiker.

Morrison explains the inspiration behind “God Shaped Hole” which features 10 tracks — five originals and five cover songs (track listing below). “The five original songs were written with the spirit of independence that was so important at one time in music, and the complete autonomy and freedom that comes with a project like this,” he says. “The covers are not huge hits, and most are by bands that never received the recognition they deserved. This record comes from a place inside me — thanking and paying respect to bands and songs that truly made me want to play, to perform and to do it my way.”billy morrison godshapedholecd_0
