Ozzy Osbourne's upcoming LP, Ordinary Man will be Osbourne’s first solo album in almost a decade.
"There’s a line in ‘Ordinary Man’ where I sing, ‘I don’t want to die an ordinary man,’ which I don’t think I will,” Osbourne said in a statement. "It was a lot of fun to do, though. It’s a lot different from my other albums. We recorded it quickly, which I haven’t done since the first Black Sabbath album. This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed.”
He added that securing guests John and Slash "just came together. … When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song, and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and, lo and behold, he agreed, and sings and play piano on the song.”
Ordinary Man will be available as a standard CD, deluxe CD, black vinyl, deluxe gatefold swirl-color vinyl, picture disc and digital album. All physical copies will include a code that can be entered into a contest for a chance to win prizes, including a laminate that will get the winner into any Osbourne show in 2020.
