Ozzy Osbourne may record new album next month

Ozzy Osbourne says he may begin work on a new album next month as he continues to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year.

Last week, the legendary rocker issued his twelfth album, “Ordinary Man”, marking his first new studio release in a decade; the project 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, while special guests include Slash, Elton John and Tom Morello.

Now, Osbourne tells iHeartRadio about the project and his plans for more new music.

“With this album, because I was so miserable the last year, it was a relief just to get and do something that I love to do,” explains Ozzy. “I had no deadlines. And I'm hoping that next month I'll go and do another album with Andrew. I might as well, while I'm not doing gigs.”

Osbourne recently cancelled his rescheduled North American tour and will soon head to Europe for additional treatments.

“I’m so thankful that everyone has been patient because I’ve had a s**t year,” says Osbourne. “Unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to Switzerland for treatment until April and the treatment takes six-eight weeks.

“I don’t want to start a tour and then cancel shows at the last minute, as it’s just not fair to the fans. I’d rather they get a refund now and when I do the North American tour down the road, everyone who bought a ticket for these shows will be the first ones in line to purchase tickets at that time.”

The North American series was scheduled to start May 27 in Atlanta, GA.
