Black Sabbath to issue unreleased songs on farewell tour CD

Black Sabbath will issue four unreleased songs from the sessions for their 2013 album, “13”, as part of a new limited-edition CD available only during shows on their upcoming farewell tour.

The band are packaging “Season Of The Dead”, “Cry All Night”, “Take Me Home” and “Isolated Man” on “The End” CD alongside four live tracks from the “13” world tour.

With original artwork by Shepard Fairey of the Obey Giant street art campaign, the extras from the “13” sessions feature Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler with drummer Brad Wilk, while the live material presents the three original Sabbath members rounded out by touring drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

Last November, Iommi revealed the group were planning to issue the unused tracks but weren’t quite sure what form the package might take at that point.

“For the last LP we did record 16 songs (and only used 12),” said the guitarist, “so we may still put something out from that. We don't know yet.”

Black Sabbath will launch the farewell tour on January 20 in Omaha, NE.

The group will once again be joined by Osbourne’s solo drummer Clufetos – who was revealed in a clip from recent rehearsals – as original member Bill Ward continues to sit out a reunion with his bandmates over contractual disputes and a issues with Osbourne over remarks in recent years.
