Ozzy Osbourne may be home recuperating, but he’s also gearing up for the release of his new studio album. To that end, the Prince of Darkness took to Instagram today to share a snippet of a new tune, with the message "new music coming Friday! #PatientNumber9.” The 20-second Todd McFarlane-assisted clip appears to be part of a music video for the song “Patient Number 9,” which Ozzy has said is "about [his wife] Sharon and I." The full video will be released on June 24.
As for the album itself, Ozzy's 13th studio effort was produced by Andrew Watt and also features bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Chad Smith, all of whom also worked with Ozz on 2020’s Ordinary Man. Other A-list collaborators this time around include Tony Iommi, Robert Trujillo, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Zakk Wylde, Josh Homme and Mike McCready.
