Sharon Osbourne reveals Ozzy Osbourne to release new studio album in January 2020
Great news for fans of the Prince of Darkness as Sharon Osbourne has revealed that her husband Ozzy Osbourne will be releasing a new studio album in January 2020.
In a recent interview with SiriusXM‘s Jess Cagle Show, Sharon Osbourne advised (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx) as follows about her husband’s health:
“He’s getting there. You know, he had a very, very bad accident this year but he’s getting there and he just finished an album. The album is coming out [in] January and he’s doing good. He, you know, is very excited about the duet that he did with Post [Malone]. Also Travis Scott. It’s doing great. You know, top 40 radio and it’s like climbing up every week and it’s doing good.”
In terms of working in the studio with Malone and Scott, and how it’s helped Ozzy Osbourne recover from his fall, Sharon Osbourne opined: “It’s been a huge boost for him because he felt literally worthless and he would watch different things on TV, and he is watching some band, a documentary on a band in their tour bus travelling. And he couldn’t watch it. He was near to tears and he goes, “I miss my life. I want my life back.” And it’s been really hard on him but he’s getting there. He’ll be back.”
Ozzy Osbourne‘s last solo studio album dates back to 2010 when Scream was released and to which Sleaze Roxx stated in one of its two reviews for the record:
“Tracks like “Let It Die” and “Let Me Hear You Scream” are clearly written with the live setting in mind. But overall Scream falls short in the songwriting department — if there would have been more songs like the aforementioned tracks this album would have been mentioned in the same sentence as No More Tears or Blizzard Of Ozz. Instead Scream will go down as another transition album where Ozzy introduced his new guitarist. I’m confused, if you’re bringing in a new guy shouldn’t you let the guy loose and allow him to inject his own style into the songs? Gus G. came in too late to do any writing, but I swear to you that if you didn’t know there’s a new guy in the band you’d think this is a restrained Zakk Wylde playing. I just can’t get my mind around why Gus wasn’t allowed to make his mark on Scream. If you want Zakk lite, wouldn’t it make sense to keep him around?”
