After nine years Ozzy Osborne continues to be his authentic self and is almost ready to release a brand new album. Just when we thought that was all Ozzy had to give, we are thoroughly proved wrong. This unstoppable metal icon has lived life to the fullest and insists the show must go on. Ozzy is almost ready to release his 9th album titled, Ordinary Man, set to be released in 2020. Ozzy said to the press,“This is quite possibly the most important album I have done in a very long time, probably since No More Tears.” Earlier this year, Ordinary Man was recorded in Los Angles, California. The album features big time artiest Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Duff McKagan on bass, as well as Andrew Watt who is Post Malone’s producer on guitar.
Along with the announcement of the future album, he also released one song off the album called “Under the Graveyard,” which hit Youtube earlier this morning. “Under the Graveyard” has some of the same vibes as songs off of his previous albums from Ozzmosis and No More Tears. This song has Ozzy’s signature stamp on it with his classic rock and roll vocals and lyrics. The hook to the song fits the King of Darkness’ style perfectly saying,
“Under the graveyard
We’re all rotting bones
Everything you are
Can’t take it when you go.”
Being the former frontman of Black Sabbath, Ozzy branched out on his own starting with Blizzard of Ozz and then released another eight solo studio albums. Currently, at the age of 70, the Prince of Darkness is still creating works of art in the music scene.
Unfortunately, the beginning of this year was a bust for Ozzy, who was undergoing some serious pain from an injurious fall. Sadly this caused him to cancel touring for this year. The future is definitely looking brighter for the Metal God who has said that this next album is going to rock our world. In Ozzy’s Biography, it states, “By the end of the decade, Osbourne’s star was on the wane, and he continued to struggle with the substance abuse problems that had plagued him throughout his career. However, he found his way back into the spotlight in 2001 with the release of his eighth studio album, Down to Earth, which reached No. 4 in the U.S. and No. 19 in the U.K.”
Osbourne recently made an appearance on Post Malone’s New album on the song,“Take What You Want,” and hit the charts for the first time in quite some time. His last appearance on another musicians album happened to be on Black Label Society’s song “Stillborn” in 2003.
