Ozzy Osbourne Announces New Album 'Ordinary Man'

Ozzy Osbourne is set to release his first new studio album in nearly a decade in early 2020. Ahead of the release, he has unveiled the lead single “Under the Graveyard,” which is available to stream now.

Entitled Ordinary Man, the record was recorded in Los Angeles and features Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan on bass, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith on drums, and producer Andrew Watt on guitar.

The album process began with Osbourne's appearance on "Take What You Want" from Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding album.

Osbourne explained, "After we finished that song, he [Andrew Watt] 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."

He continued, "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 will be his 12th solo release and is the follow-up to 2010's Scream.
