Ozzy Osbourne Streams New Song Featuring Guns N' Roses Star
Ozzy Osbourne is streaming a brand new song called "Under The Graveyard," that features Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers Chad Smith.
The track is the first taste of Ozzy's forthcoming album "Ordinary Man," which is set to hit stores early next year and the first new song from the metal legend in almost a decade.
The former Black Sabbath frontman recorded the new album with Post Malone producer Andrew Watt (who also plays guitar on the record), McKagan and Smith in Los Angeles and Osbourne had this to say, "This album was a gift from my higher power--it is proof to me that you should never give up."
Osbourne was forced to postpone his No More Tours 2 tour earlier this year and met up with Watt to collaborate on a new Post Malone track, and that led to the creation of this new album.
Ozzy explains, "It all started when [his daughter] Kelly comes in and says 'do you want to work on a Post Malone song?'. My first thing was 'who the f*** 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 f***ing 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 f***ing 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." Listen to the new song here.
