Listen to Ozzy Osbourne’s New Song With Slash, ‘Straight to Hell’
Ozzy Osbourne has released a second song from his upcoming album, Ordinary Man. It's called "Straight to Hell," and you can listen to it below.
"On the full-on rocker 'Straight to Hell,' Ozzy takes listeners to the heart of darkness – 'Something is missing and you don't know why' – with Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash along for this devilish ride, delivering scorched-earth riffs," Epic Records said in a statement.
"Under the Graveyard," the first song from Ordinary Man, was released two weeks ago. The forthcoming LP finds Osbourne fronting a band consisting of Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and producer Andrew Watt on guitar. He recorded the nine tracks found on Ordinary Man while recovering from a fall, yet still quickly completed the project.
“The album was all finished in four weeks," Osbourne said in September. "I said to [wife and manager] Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album, because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”
"Straight to Hell" arrives just days before Osbourne, Post Malone and Travis Scott are set to appear at the American Music Awards. They will perform "Take What You Want," a Malone collaboration released earlier this year.
Osbourne made a surprise guest appearance overnight during Post Malone's concert at the Forum, performing the first-ever live rendition of "Take What You Want."
Osbourne credited his daughter Kelly with making the song to happen. The Malone connection led to Osbourne working with Watt. "It all started when Kelly comes in and says, 'Do you want to work on a Post Malone song?'" Osbourne explained. "My first thing was, 'Who the fuck is Post Malone?' I went to Andrew's house, and he said we will work really quick."
After postponing his No More Tours 2 for all of 2019 due to the fall, Osbourne will return to the road in May 2020, playing two months of shows across North America with Marilyn Manson opening. In the fall, Osbourne and Judas Priest will tour across Europe.
