Ozzy Osbourne Is “Doing Really Good” And Working On A New Album


Ozzy Osbourne has commenced work on his thirteenth studio album according to his wife, Sharon Osbourne. Osbourne has once again teamed up with producer/musician Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Blink-182) for those sessions. Watt also oversaw Osbourne‘s latest release, “Ordinary Man“.

Sharon commented on that via an appearance on Steve-O‘s ‘Wild Ride!‘ podcast, which you can watch below. Regarding “Ordinary Man” and its eventual follow-up, she stated:

“The album [‘Ordinary Man‘] was sensational. He’s starting his second album with Andrew Watt right now. And you can’t stop him. He’s doing it.”

Ozzy‘s health was also addressed (Ozzy has been recovering from a bad fall that damaged a previous surgical procedure, while also battling the advancing effects of PRKN 2, a form of Parkinson’s disease), with Sharon offering:

“He’s doing good. He’s doing really, really good. He’s had a terrible, terrible injury. At one point, they thought he would never walk again, but he is — he’s walking and he’s doing great. He’s been hit by so much medically, but he’s doing good. He’s getting stronger every day.

Oh, God. I mean, to be hit with the spinal injury, and then what it had done was it kind of started off the Parkinson’s that he had the gene for but was never activated — he just had the gene. It’s like having the breast cancer gene but it never comes into fruition — it never gets alive. And he had the Parkinson’s gene and this accident just sparked it off. So he kind of had a double dose of everything. But he’s doing good.

It’s heartbreaking — it’s heartbreaking — to see this. He’s had this ride in his life, and then suddenly — boom! — you are floored. And to have your health taken away… No matter what you’ve got money-wise or anything in the world, [it’s something you] can’t fix.”

As for Ozzy‘s hopes to return to the stage one day:

Ozzy says that as far as performing goes, he has to end it his way. Because it was his farewell tour that he was on [before he had his accident], but he still had a year to do of that tour, and there were seats sold for the next year, but the accident stopped it all. But he said it’s not gonna end just like that — it’s gonna end his way. And he’s gonna go back out. And even if it’s just one huge show to say goodbye, he’s going to do it.”
