Ozzy Osbourne has just released a pair of career-spanning “Memoirs Of A Madman” collections, but he’s already sharing an update on the status of his next solo album.
"'Memoirs Of A Madman' was, because I've been not doing my solo stuff for quite awhile now, I've been touring with Black Sabbath, I just wanted to let everybody know I haven't stopped doing my solo stuff,” Ozzy tells GMI Rock (audio below). “It's like a bridge thing... So I'm gonna do one more Black Sabbath tour, one more album with Black Sabbath, and I'm in the process, as we go along, [of] collecting stuff that I'm writing. I've co-written about three songs so far for my own solo thing.”
“It'll take about two or three years before I release solo stuff again,” adds Ozzy, “so 'Memoirs Of The Madman' is just to say to the fans that I haven't stopped, y'know?"
The “Memoirs Of A Madman” CD features 17 of Ozzy's hit singles compiled in one place for the first time, and is available in a single CD, 2-LP set and 2-LP picture disc set configurations.
The 2-disc DVD presents classic music videos, unreleased and out-of-print live performances, as well as interviews from his solo career.
Ozzy will be honored with the Global Icon Award at the 2014 MTV EMA (MTV Europe Music Awards) next month. Hosted by Nicki Minaj, the event will take place on Sunday, November 9 at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.
