Ozzy Osbourne streams Ordinary Man featuring Elton John and Slash

Ozzy Osbourne is streaming the title track to his forthcoming album, “Ordinary Man”, which features a guest appearance by Elton John and guitar solos by Slash.

“When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’” says Ozzy, “it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”

Due February 21, Ozzy’s first new studio release in a decade sees him teamed with producer and guitarist Andrew Watt and includes the rhythm section of Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.

“It was a lot of fun to do though it’s a lot different from my other albums,” explains the rocker. “We recorded it quickly, which I haven’t done since the first Black Sabbath album. This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed.”

“Ordinary Man” will be available as a standard CD, deluxe CD, black vinyl, deluxe gatefold swirl color vinyl, picture disc and digital album; in addition, all physical copies of the album will include a unique code that will allow the purchaser to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of over 300 Ozzy prizes (including an official Ozzy laminate to get into any show on the 2020 “No More Tours 2,” meet and greets with Ozzy, a gift certificate to the Ozzy global store and more).
