Published Nov 08, 2019Ozzy Osbourne is making his next album move, and he's teasing it with the new single "Under the Graveyard."
The Black Sabbath legend's next solo album with be called Ordinary Man, and you hear its newly shared song "Under the Graveyard" below.
Ordinary Man will mark Ozzy's first new solo material in 10 years, following up 2010's Scream. While there's no firm release date yet, the album will arrive in early 2020 via Epic Records. Previous reports hinted it would be released in January.
"This album was a gift from my higher power — it is proof to me that you should never give up," Osbourne said in a statement.
The album will feature Andrew Watt on guitar, Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses on bass and Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith on drums.
Ozzy had this to say about the upcoming album and its origins:
It all started when [his daughter] Kelly comes in and says 'do you want to work on a Post Malone song?'" Osbourne said of the album. "My first thing was 'who the fuck is Post Malone?!' I went to Andrew's [Watt] house and he said we will work really quick. After we finished that song, he said 'would you be interested in starting an album.' I said 'that would be fucking great, but now I am thinking I don't want to be working in a basement studio for six months! And in just a short time, we had the album done.
Duff [McKagan] and Chad [Smith] came in and we would go in and jam during the day and I would go work out the songs in the evenings. I previously had said to Sharon I should be doing an album, but in the back of my mind I was going 'I haven't got the fucking strength…' but Andrew pulled it out of me. I really hope people listen to it and enjoy it, because I put my heart and soul into this album.
More info about Ordinary Man is expected in the coming weeks, but for now, hear "Under the Graveyard" below.
