OZZY OSBOURNE Wants To Record New Studio Album In 2024

The Prince of Darkness Working On New Music

Ozzy Osbourne, the legendary heavy metal singer, is set to record a new studio album in 2024. After recent health challenges, including spinal surgery, Ozzy is eager to return to the studio, potentially reuniting with producer Andrew Watt. Fans can anticipate a fresh dose of Ozzy’s iconic sound and lyrics.

Ozzy Osbourne Working On New Album

Legendary heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne, known for his extensive and influential career, is gearing up to hit the studio once again. Following the release of two successful albums in the past four years, “Ordinary Man” in 2020 and “Patient Number 9” in 2022, both produced by Andrew Watt, Ozzy has confirmed his intentions to record a new LP in 2024. In an exclusive interview with Metal Hammer magazine, he shared his excitement and plans for the upcoming project.

A New Album on the Horizon

Ozzy Osbourne expressed his eagerness for this new venture, stating, “I’m getting myself fit. I’ve done two albums fairly recently, but I want to do one more album and then go back on the road.” Fans worldwide can anticipate a fresh dose of Ozzy’s signature sound and lyrics.

Moreover, Ozzy hinted at a potential reunion with producer Andrew Watt, aiming to record the new album at Watt’s newly established studio in the United Kingdom. He emphasized the importance of taking his time with this project, indicating a commitment to delivering his best work yet.

Ozzy’s Health Update

The metal legend also provided an update on his health, particularly after undergoing what he referred to as his “final surgery” in September. Ozzy admitted that the recovery process had been challenging, saying, “I’ve had all the surgery now, thank god. I’m feeling okay — it was just dragging on. I thought I’d be back on my feet months ago, I just couldn’t get used to this mode of living, constantly having something wrong. I can’t walk properly yet, but I’m not in any pain anymore, and the surgery on my spine went great.”

His health struggles date back to a severe fall at home in 2019, which exacerbated injuries he had sustained in a near-fatal quad bike accident in 2003. Despite these setbacks, Ozzy remains determined and optimistic about his future endeavors.

Live Appearances and Recent Achievements

Ozzy’s health issues have unfortunately led to the cancellation of some of his previously scheduled tours. However, the BLACK SABBATH frontman has affirmed his willingness to return to the stage should his condition improve.

Despite his health challenges, Ozzy Osbourne made several notable live appearances in recent months, including performances at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in August 2022 and the NFL halftime show at the season opener between the Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills in September 2022.

His most recent album, “Patient Number 9,” received a Grammy Award for “Best Rock Album” at the 65th annual Grammy Awards, held in February at the Crypto.com Arena (formerly the Staples Center) in Los Angeles, California. This achievement adds to Ozzy’s impressive collection of Grammy wins, with three previous awards and eight nominations throughout his career.

“Patient Number 9”: A Chart-Topping Success

Released in September 2022, “Patient Number 9” marked Ozzy’s 13th solo studio album, receiving widespread critical acclaim. The album not only topped his previous chart performances but also achieved record-breaking success worldwide.

In the United States, the album debuted at No. 1 on multiple charts, including Top Album Sales, Top Current Album Sales, Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums, Top Vinyl Albums, and Tastemaker Albums charts. Globally, it reached No. 1 in Canada, a first for Ozzy, and secured career-high No. 2 positions in the U.K., Australia, Finland, and Italy. Additionally, it charted at No. 6 in the Netherlands and New Zealand, No. 8 in Belgium, and No. 14 in France. The album also performed exceptionally well in Austria, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and Norway.

“Patient Number 9” featured a stellar lineup of guest musicians, including BLACK SABBATH co-founder Tony Iommi, guitar legends Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of PEARL JAM, and Zakk Wylde, who has been Ozzy’s longstanding guitarist. Drum duties were handled by Chad Smith of RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, with the late Taylor Hawkins of FOO FIGHTERS appearing on three tracks. Bassists Robert Trujillo of METALLICA, Duff McKagan of GUNS N’ ROSES, and Chris Chaney also made significant contributions to the album.

As fans eagerly await Ozzy Osbourne’s upcoming studio album in 2024, his remarkable resilience and dedication to his craft continue to inspire both newcomers and longtime enthusiasts of heavy metal music.
