Is it too early to call 2020 the Year of Ozzy Osbourne? The Blizzard of Ozz kicked off the new calendar season with the fiery video for his “Straight to Hell” single, and now wife/manager Sharon Osbourne has revealed that the heavy metal icon has a seriously major collaboration in the works.
On her daytime chat show The Talk on Monday (Jan. 6) Sharon was talking about the big year in store for Ozzy after a tumultuous 2019, which was marred by a series of health issues for the singer.
“A lot of good things. Wellness. And to get back with his band, to get doing what he loves, which is touring and being out there with his fans,” Sharon said of Ozzy’s plan to get back on the road for his oft-delayed No More Tours 2 outing. But it was what she said next that really got the Ozzy Nation roaring.
Speaking of Ozzy’s upcoming Ordinary Man album, Sharon promised that fans are going to be very happy with what’s in store.
“And yes, there’s new music, and it’s great,” she teased. “He’s got all his friends playing on it. He’s doing a song with Elton [John]. There’s so much good stuff. Good things.”
At press time, spokespeople for Osbourne and fresh Golden Globes winner John could not be reached for confirmation about the track.
So far, fans have heard the songs “Under the Graveyard” and “Hell” from Ordinary Man, whose release date has not yet been confirmed.
John and longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin won the best original song Globe on Sunday night for “(I’m Gonna) Love me Again” from the Rocketman biopic.
