Ozzy Osbourne has released a new song, Under the Graveyard. Take a listen above. The song definitely sticks to the Birmingham metaller’s musical roots – beginning with lush acoustic guitars, before kicking up a notch into heavy territory – culminating in a fast, groovy solo section reminiscent of classic Sabbath. Taking up guitar for this track is producer Andrew Watt, while Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan and The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith feature on bass and drums respectively.
The mortality-themed song, taken from his first solo album in 10 years, Ordinary Man, comes after a series of health scares for Ozzy, including a fall during his recovery from pneumonia that required neck surgery. Yet Ozzy has clearly recovered well, with this upcoming album and his recent appearance on a Post Malone track.
The album was initially confirmed by Sharon Osbourne, and is slated for release in 2020.
