Ozzy Osbourne returns with 'Under The Graveyard'
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and heavy metal legend Ozzy Osbourne has released his first new single in ten years, "Under The Graveyard."
The searing ballad is the first taste of Osbourne's upcoming twelfth studio album release, Ordinary Man, which is due out on Epic Records in early 2020. Listen to the track here.
The album was recorded in Los Angeles and features producer Andrew Watt on guitar, Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
The album was put together during the time that Osbourne was at home recovering after a series of health issues that forced him to postpone a number of solo tour shows.
"This album was a gift from a higher power. It is proof to me that you should never give up," Osbourne shared.
Ozzy has not released a solo-effort since 2010's Scream. He spent the last few years on the road with Black Sabbath and then out on his own solo tour.
Last month, Osbourne had to postpone his European tour to recover from surgery he sustained during a bout with pneumonia. The European leg of his "No More Tours 2" trek are now scheduled to take place in the first half of 2021.
He will be playing some North American dates in May 2020.
