FIRST SINGLE IN NEARLY 10 YEARS FROM OZZY IS FROM HIS FORTHCOMING ALBUM, ‘ORDINARY MAN’
“This is quite possibly the most important album I have done in a very long time, probably since No More Tears.”
(November 8, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA) – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNEtoday has released “Under The Graveyard,” his first new solo music in almost 10 years. A massive ballad that builds into a searing rocker, it’s the first single from OZZY’s forthcoming album, ORDINARY MAN, due out on Epic Records in early 2020. Listen to the song HERE.
“This album was a gift from my higher power–it is proof to me that you should never give up,” OZZY says.
“It all started when [his daughter] Kelly comes in and says ‘do you want to work on a Post Malone song?’” OZZY explains. “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.”
Stay tuned for additional details on ORDINARY MAN in the coming weeks.
