Ozzy Osbourne ready with new album

Ozzy Osbourne has confirmed he’s finished work on his new album, according to NME.

Sharing a photo on social media, Osbourne said “I’m so happy to let everyone know that I finished my new album this week and delivered it to my label Epic Records.”

“I’ll be sharing all the information about the album and its upcoming release with you in the next several weeks,” he added.

The followup to 2020’s ‘Ordinary Man’ was expected to be released before the end of April according to a financial statement issued by Sony at the end of last year.

Last December, Osbourne’s producer and guitarist Andrew Watt said he and his bandmates were “about halfway through” recording the new album. The new band, Watt explained, features Osbourne on vocals, himself on guitar and Robert Trujillo (Metallica) on bass, with the late Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) sharing drumming duties.

In recent weeks, Smith has also confirmed that Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, Eric Clapton, Josh Homme and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready also feature. He claims Ozzy also tried to get Jimmy Page to contribute but “I don’t think he plays anymore”.
