Ozzy Osbourne has released the music video for his track Under the Graveyard – you can watch it above.
The video, starring Jack Kilmer and Jessica Barden as Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne respectively, depicts Ozzy’s struggles with drugs and alcohol – and the subsequent withdrawal he suffered as Sharon helped him overcome his addiction. Ozzy said of the video “For ‘Under the Graveyard,’ Jonas [Akerlund, director] developed the story into a ‘mini movie.’ But, to be quite honest, it’s hard for me to watch because it takes me back to some of the darkest times in my life. Thankfully, Sharon was there to pick me up and believe in me. It was the first time she was there to fully support me and build me back up, but it certainly wasn’t the last.”
Under the Graveyard was the first release from Ozzy’s upcoming solo album Ordinary Man, his first in a decade. Playing guitar on the track is producer Andrew Watt. The release was followed by the single Straight to Hell, which features Slash on the six-string. Ordinary Man is set to arrive next year, followed by a (delayed) tour with support from Marilyn Manson.
The release also comes after Ozzy offered a $25,000 reward for the return of Randy Rhoad’s stolen guitars and music equipment.
