Black Sabbath Have ‘Finished Recording’ New Album, On Track For Release In June

Written by Kiel Egging on February 2, 2013

Metal legends Black Sabbath have pretty much finished recording their comeback album, according to bass player Geezer Butler.

Ultimate Classic Rock reports that Butler declared the news in an interview with American radio and TV presenter Eddie Trunk at the NAMM show in California recently.

Butler declared that the album – tentatively titled ’13’ – will be out in June, if all goes to plan. Mixing is to start later this month, once guitarist Tony Iommi lays down his final guitar parts.

“We’ve finished recording it. Tony’s back in England putting down a couple of solos… We start mixing it in February and it will be out in June.

“The provisional title is ’13′ — unless we can come up with something more constructive.”

Butler also revealed that he’s kept his traditional post as the main lyricist for the new Black Sabbath record.

“Yeah, I’ve written most of the lyrics. Ozzy comes up with the titles and then gives me an inspiration to write the lyrics. I think we’ve got 16 songs and I’ve written 14 sets of lyrics.”

Black Sabbath will be playing in arenas around Australia in April and May – and there’s a damn good chance we’ll be some of the first to hear them play the new material. More details on the tour here.
