"Out of My Mind / Holy Water" is a fund-raising two-track CD single from the supergroup WhoCares, a Tony Iommi and Ian Gillan collaboration, a direct continuation of the Rock Aid Armenia project. The CD contains the single "Out of My Mind" and the song "Holy Water" with the latter using the traditional Armenian instrument, the duduk by two Armenian musicians Arshak Sahakyan and Ara Gevorgyan.

The sale of the CD is to raise money to rebuild a music school in Gyumri, Armenia after the destruction of the city in the 1988 earthquake in Armenia and to buy musical instruments for the school. The CD was released on May 6, 2011 by Ear Music / Edel.

The recordings also appear on the WhoCares 2-CD release Ian Gillan & Tony Iommi: WhoCares on 13 July 2012.
