After releasing his 2020 album ‘Ordinary Man,’ Ozzy Osbourne is now getting ready to release another in 2022. For the new album, Osbourne worked with big names such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Tony Iommi.
Osbourne’s 2020 album ‘Ordinary Man’ was released on November 22, 2020, amid the pandemic. Critics commented that in this album, Ozzy was way better than his previous albums and his time in Black Sabbath.
After releasing the 2020 album, the Prince of Darkness announced a sequel will be released very soon. He also noted that he will continue working with Andrew Watt, who produced ‘Ordinary Man.’ Osbourne had surprised his fans with his collaborations with various musicians for his latest album, especially Elton John.
In the upcoming album, he revealed the people he collaborated with to present his fans something unique. He stated that he is working with The Yardbirds’ Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, and Osbourne’s long-time guitarist Zakk Wylde.
Here is how he announced the names:
“On this new album, I’m working with Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, and Zakk.
He continued to say how difficult it is to collaborate with well-known musicians:
“You just write the song, and you just ask them to sing what you give them. The good thing is it’s interesting to work with somebody else. But the bad thing is if it doesn’t work, you can’t cause they’ll get all pissed off.“
The album’s title track made his fans emotional shortly after its release. The people compared the song to Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’ and were scared that this was a ‘goodbye’ song. However, the Prince of Darkness made them feel better by revealing that this is not a goodbye, and he will release a sequel for the album.
While waiting for his new album’s release date, you can listen to the 2020 song ‘Ordinary Man’ below.
