I'm so sorry if this has already been discussed!

???

Roger Taylor

"New album coming for 2010 ---> The Unblinking Eye (Everything Is Broken) with a
single "The Unblinking Eye (Everything Is Broken)" Just Enjoy"

Have anyone heard/read something about this?

My NOT so good source:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Roger-Taylor/10432543894?ref=search#!/pages/Roger-Taylor/34591867096?ref=ts

It's not Roger Taylor's facebook profile - it's just a fan-page by some dude...

I really like the message and the song - The Unblinking Eye

That is an old new my friend.

New Roger's album is called Fun In Space.

Roger's last two albums were recorded fairly quietly, as he didn't make a big deal about what he was doing. Since he has no real website he maintains, he can keep things quiet. Which is the opposite of Brian, who regularly posts what he's doing in the studio and with whom.

I'm not sure which method I prefer, knowing what's being recorded and looking forward to it or having an album appear out of nowhere having only heard a single in advance.

I like "The Unblinking Eye" and the CD single has an excellent instrumental version ("Almost Naked") which is well worth getting a hold of.

No it very well isn't! There is no "(Instrumental)" in that version's title. Do you even own the CD-Single?

I own the CD single, but didn't have it in front of my when I posted about the instrumental version. I couldn't remember if it was "Nude" or "Naked".

Anyway, it's excellent.

Anyone suppose that "Woman, You're So Beautiful," either the Felix And Arty Main Mix or a solo Roger version might appear on this album? I've been kicking that possibility around lately.

I would love to hear a Roger version of Woman, You're So Beautiful. I read that he originally sang on it, wasn't happy and brought Felix in, but Felix sounds so much like Roger on the finished track that I can't imagine Roger's version was bad!

I'm also curious whether there will be a cover version or two, as, like Brian (and Freddie, with "The Great Pretender"), Roger seems to like recording them:

Strange Frontier:
Racing In The Street
Masters Of War
Keep On Running

The Cross:
Foxy Lady

Electric Fire:
Working Class Hero
Keep A'Knockin'

Throw "I Wanna Testify" in there too, though let's be honest, how much of Roger's version actually covers Parliament's song of the same name?
