Ozzy Osbourne Enlisted Guns N’ Roses & Red Hot Chili Peppers Members For His New Album, Premieres New Single “Under The Graveyard”


Ozzy Osbourne has released his new single, “Under The Graveyard” below. The song is the first track to meet a release from his upcoming twelfth studio album, “Ordinary Man“. Osbourne recorded that album earlier this year with producer Andrew Watt after working together on a collaboration with Post Malone. Despite reuniting with guitarist Zakk Wylde for live shows, Wylde was not involved in the sessions for this upcoming record.

Instead, Osbourne enlisted Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith for the studio sessions, with Watt taking on the guitar duties. Speaking of the forthcoming album, Osbourne stated:

“It all started when Kelly [Osbourne] comes in and says ‘do you want to work on a Post Malone song?’ 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.”
