Ozzy Osbourne featuring Slash recently released “Straight To Hell,” the second single from his upcoming album“Ordinary Man” which will be released in early 2020.
Earlier this month, Ozzy released his first new song after almost a decade, “Under The Graveyard.” After garnering over 2.8 million global streams during its first week, Rolling Stone had this to say, “doom and gloom is what makes an Ozzy song great, and it’s what make this one a keeper,” and NPR wrote, “It sounds like Ozzy and, remarkably, Ozzy‘s voice can still tear through your soul.”
“This album was a gift from my higher power — it is proof to me that you should never give up,” Ozzy said.
“Straight To Hell” was recorded in Los Angeles featuring producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan on bass, and Chad Smith on drums.
“It all started when Kelly [Osbourne] comes in and says, ‘Do you want to work on a Post Malone song?'” Ozzy explained. “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 and Chad 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.”
Last month, Ozzy postponed his European tour as he recovered from surgery to repair an injury sustained. “No More Tours 2” is set to be rescheduled in January all the way through March 2020 and will North American dates in May 2020.
