Today, legendary Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne shares his first new solo music since 2010’s album Scream. The single Under The Graveyard comes off a whole brand new album, called Ordinary Man, which will be released early in 2020 through Sony Music Entertainment.
“It all started when Kelly comes in and says ‘do you want to work on a Post Malone song?’” said Ozzy. “My first thing was ‘who the fuck is Post Malone?!’ I went to Andrew’s 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 and Chad 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.”
Ordinary Man was recorded with a line-up featuring producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
