Last week we reported that Ozzy Osbourne and Elton John were working on new music together as part of Ozzy’s new solo record – his first in 10 years – Ordinary Man.
Now, Osbourne has shared the title track from the album, which features none other than Sir Elton himself.
A reflective, piano-drive ballad, ‘Ordinary Man’ sees Ozzy take a look back at his life and legacy. “Don’t forget me as the colours fade / When the lights go down, it’s just an empty stage,” he sings. Sir Elton’s verse is similarly introspective.
Ordinary Man is scheduled for release Friday, 21st February. It’s the third single Ozzy’s released from the new album, after sharing ‘Under the Graveyard’ and ‘Straight to Hell’ back in November.
In addition to John, special guests include Slash and Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses along with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and Post Malone.
Malone collaborated with Ozzy last year on his Hollywood’s Bleeding track ‘Take What You Want’, which saw Osbourne team up with rapper Travis Scott.
