Ozzy Osbourne Finishes New Album

During a recent interview with The Sun, Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he has completed work on a new album. The nine-track effort will be the singer’s first since 2010’s “Scream.”

Osbourne said his recent collaboration with Post Malone got the creative juices flowing:

“I’d never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song ‘Take What You Want’, so I did and then one thing led to another. I started recording a new album with Post Malone’s producer Andrew Watt. It’s only nine tracks, but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.

If it wasn’t for making this record, I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here forever.’ I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album, I thought I was dying. But that got me off my arse.”

He also added:

“This is my first recording in a studio for 10 years, so I do feel a bit out of touch.

Music goes straight online these days and that’s quicker than it takes me to write a text. It’s all about downloads and streaming now. What the fuck does that mean? What’s Spotify? I thought it was a skin problem where you woke up Spotified.

The album was all finished in four weeks. I said to Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”

Ozzy Osbourne Discusses His Ongoing Recovery

As you are probably well aware of by now, Ozzy Osbourne postponed all of his 2019 dates due to injury. While dealing with a bout of pneumonia, the singer fell in his Los Angeles home and aggravated previous injuries he sustained in his 2003 ATV accident. Osbourne has since discussed his injury and ongoing recovery with Rolling Stone, saying he is hoping that he will be back in action in January.

Osbourne had the following to say about his injury and surgery:

“For the first, say, four months, I was absolutely in agony. I was in agony beyond anything I ever experienced before in my life. It was awful. I’m taking physical and occupational therapy classes, but the progress is very slow. They say it’s going to take at least a year. I’m hoping that I’ll be OK and ready to go by January [when the tour resumes]. I’m really keeping my fingers crossed.”

He also said the following about some lingering complications from the surgeries, which were related to the way his spinal fluid moves due to the 2003 accident:

“I was getting a strange feeling sometimes, like nerve pain going down my arms. I used to think it was wear-and-tear from being on the road and didn’t give it a second thought.”

He also added the following about his latest surgery:

“When they do surgery on your neck, they cut through all the nerves, and it fucked everything up. So I’m wobbling all over the place. And since they cut through the nerves, my right arm feels permanently cold. You’d get a warm feeling in your hands. I wake up with it, and I go to bed with it.”

He went on to say that he is now on a nerve-pain medication. Unfortunately, the frontman also ended up with blood clots in his legs and has since had to go on blood thinners as well.

Osbourne also talked about his ability to move:

“I’m used to getting up, getting on my elliptical and going for an hour or so and breaking a sweat. But I can’t do it. One day, I was doing an hour or two on the elliptical; now I can do just barely half an hour. I go out with a walking stick, and I walk up the road and I’m bushed. The nurse told me, I have to be careful if I bang myself, because there’s a blood clot and all that shit. It’s scary stuff … From 40 [years old] to 70 was OK and suddenly you get to 70 and everything caved in on me.”

He also discussed the mental toll everything is taking on him:

“The most depressing thing I’ve been thinking is, ‘Am I gonna walk properly again? Am I gonna be able to perform again? I thought, ‘Well, if I just lay there watching fucking World at War again, I’m not gonna fucking do anything. So do what you can, even if it’s a little, just so you’re doing stuff … I don’t think I can do a rock concert right now. I’ll go, ‘Hello,’ and that’s it.”

Despite this, he is hoping to be back in action in January:

“The progress is so fucking slow. It’s like, come on. My date is January, I hope to fucking God, ’cause I’m gonna go fucking nuts. We’re just keeping our fingers crossed. It’s like making a sculpture. You chip away at it and it turns into this thing. You have to resculpture your life again.”
