Ozzy Osbourne just released his solo album Ordinary Man two weeks ago, but he’s already started move on a new record.
Just yesterday (25 February), the Prince of Darkness held a Reddit AMA session to engage fans and promote his latest release by answering questions from Reddit users. When asked about his plans post-Ordinary Man, the singer revealed that he was actually working on yet another record.
“I am [writing] another album because while I can’t tour, I can make music”, the Black Sabbath icon said. “What I learned from Ordinary Man, it got the juices flowing again. People say they write the best songs when they’re unhappy, and I was unhappy last year. I don’t have a favourite song from Ordinary Man because I was writing a new song every day.”
Due to his ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease, Osbourne has cancelled the North American leg of No More Tours 2, held in support of Ordinary Man. During this time, he will be heading to Switzerland for additional treatment. The singer said in a statement at the time: “I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans.”
The European leg of the tour, however, will go on as planned. It begins on 23 October at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle, United Kingdom, and ends on 7 December, at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland.
