Ozzy Osbourne streams title track to new album Patient Number 9

Ozzy Osbourne is streaming a video for the title track to his forthcoming album, “Patient Number 9.”

The tune sees the rock icon joined by Jeff Beck, one of several guest guitarists on the project, which – like 2020’s “Ordinary Man” – was produced by Andrew Watt.

"The song is about a mental institution,” explains Osbourne. “Having someone like Jeff Beck play on my album is just incredible, a total honor. There's no other guitar player that plays like him and his solo on 'Patient Number 9' is just jaw-dropping."

Due September 9, the album sees Osbourne working with a core lineup of Watt, Zakk Wylde, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and guests including Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction, and – for the first time ever – Black Sabbath legend Tony Iommi appears on an Ozzy solo album.

"It was really great working with Tony,” says Ozzy. “He's the riff master. No one can touch him in that respect. I only wish we had these songs for Black Sabbath’s '13' album."

Osbourne is currently recuperating at his Los Angeles home following major surgery on June 13 to remove and realign pins in his neck and back.
