PATIENT NUMBER 9–released September 9 and marking OZZY’s 13th solo studio album–triumphantly sets new career highs for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter. The critically acclaimed album has topped his previous chart entries with record-breaking numbers around the world. In the U.S., the album debuted at #1 on multiple charts: Top Album Sales (Ozzy’s first #1 ever on this chart), Top Current Album Sales (another first), Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Rock Albums, Top Vinyl Albums and Tastemaker Albums charts; and at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Globally, the album charted at #1 in Canada (OZZY’s first-ever #1 there); career high #2 entries in the UK, Australia, Finland and Italy; #6 in the Netherlands and New Zealand; #8 in Belgium; and #14 France. Other highlights include #2 Austria, Germany and Sweden; #3 in Switzerland; and #4 in Norway.

Working with producer Andrew Watt for the second time, OZZY welcomed a dynamic A-list featured guests on the album. For the first time ever, Black Sabbath co-founder, guitarist, and riff-master Tony Iommi appears on an OZZY solo album. The record also boasts guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, and longstanding righthand man and six-string beast Zakk Wylde who plays on the majority of the tracks. For the bulk of the album, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers held down drums, while the late Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters appears on three songs. Old friend and one-time OZZY band member Robert Trujillo of Metallica plays bass on most of the album’s tracks, with Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney supplying bass on a few songs.

Q&A WITH
OZZY OSBOURNE

Q: How does it feel to have received four nominations for the new album?

OZZY: “I’m honestly overwhelmed. Making this record was a great way to me to get back to work as I continued to heal. It’s pretty great to be acknowledged at this point in my career.”

Q: Between the pandemic and you going through your surgeries, do you think that contributed to making another record so quickly?

OZZY: “Well, the thing was I had all this time–we all did through the pandemic. Instead of lying there and just doing my physical therapy, the record actually got me doing something that I love.”

Q: What was your mindset when you were writing and recording the album?

OZZY: “I was thinking about the times we’ve been living in. There wasn’t much good news. It was a fucking war in Ukraine and the pandemic. The world seemed to be on the brink of a bad thing.”

Q: How do you feel at this point in your career having the kind of notoriety you’ve achieved with this album?

OZZY: “The business forever surprises me. It’s never a safe bet. I’ve done things in the past where I tell myself ‘this is going to be a hit.’ Then it’s gone down the shitter and other things I’ve done…It’s done the opposite. I’m very cheered up by the support.”

Q: The interesting thing about the album is it features top musicians, including some old friends.

OZZY: “Oh yeah. I mean the guitars are Tony [Iommi], Zakk [Wylde], Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck’s fucking phenomenal work, plus Robert Trujillo on bass. It’s turned out better than I ever expected. And having Taylor Hawkins with me in the studio like a week or two before he died was amazing. To think he’s gone breaks my heart.”

Q: It must be special that “Degradation Rules” which features Tony Iommi, was nominated for a Grammy.

OZZY: “Such great news. I mean that song would’ve made a great Black Sabbath track. It’s a very well-structured song. I’ve known Tony since I was 12 years old and I’m glad to say we’ve continued a really good friendship. Tony’s been very supportive of me while I’ve been recovering from surgery. He’s been in constant contact, which has been great.”

Q: What’s the collaboration like with producer Andrew Watt?

OZZY: “He’s a lot better than most producers at collaboration. The fact that he plays guitar, and I don’t, and he works with machines and I don’t, makes it easier. It’s just great working with him. We end up arguing a bit with…sometimes, but not a lot!”

DATE: OCTOBER 20, 2022

FROM: MARCEE RONDAN/MITCH SCHNEIDER

DETAILS REVEALED FOR
OZZY OSBOURNE’S
‘PATIENT NUMBER 9’ ALBUM THEME
VIA ACCOMPANYING COMIC BOOK

To learn about what inspired the theme for OZZY OSBOURNE’s PATIENT NUMBER 9 album, look no further than the 26-page comic book available solely in some limited-edition album packages. Featuring a story by Todd McFarlane and illustrations by Jonathan Glapion (the beautiful haunting interior pages were painted by Glapion with a striking cover provided by McFarlane), the comic book was initially available only in record stores and online.

The comic book serves as the prequel to the McFarlane-directed video for the album’s first single and title track” Patient Number 9.” The Limited Edition CD + Comic Book bundle is now being sold at more than 600 comic book stores throughout North America (click here to find a local store).

Here’s some international critical feedback for PATIENT NUMBER 9. Click here to read more.

“It’s a This Is Your Life collection of the artists who influenced, played with, and were inspired by Osbourne, and, even with all the star power, it never feels like anything other than an Ozzy Osbourne album…an album that rocks harder than Ordinary Man without losing sight of Osbourne’s love of melody.”
ROLLING STONE

“Ozzy Osbourne Is a Bright Light on Star-Studded Album Patient Number 9…”
CONSEQUENCE

“Through it all, Osbourne sounds full of life…Patient Number 9 is a more focused work…there was speculation around Ordinary Man’s release that it could be Osbourne’s final album. Patient Number 9 proves that theory wrong. Don’t count him out just yet.”
ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK

“A new Ozzy Osbourne album still feels like a major event…When Ozzy speaks, the world still listens. Patient Number 9 also happens to be Osbourne’s best album in years…The all-star supporting cast doesn’t outshine Ozzy, who sounds terrific…”
STEREOGUM

“The songs are tightly written…also finely balanced, the choruses big and bold enough to attract attention  but not overshadow the main attraction’s essential essence.”
The Guardian UK
⭐⭐⭐⭐

“…it’s a fizzing piece of hard-rock magic.”
NME UK
⭐⭐⭐⭐

“Patient Number 9: a defiantly bravura set of melodic metal on which the 73-year-old genuinely sounds as though he’s having the time of his life.”
Telegraph UK
⭐⭐⭐⭐

“…a massive celebration of life and friendship and the magic power of music.”
Kerrang! UK
⭐⭐⭐⭐

“Ozzy still has a lot to say, and his voice sounds heartbreakingly beautiful”
De Volkskrant Netherlands
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“The Prince of Darkness rides again on ‘Patient Number 9’, and it’s a regal adventure from start to finish courtesy of a once-in-a-lifetime talent (and some prodigious friends).”
The Soundcheck Australia

“This truly is a brilliant album.”
Everblack Media Australia

“Headline: Ozzy still got it. There is only one prince of darkness, and he is immortal…The world’s strongest metal-voice is back with his 13th solo album…The album is one of the most heartfelt albums the metal legend has ever put out…The legend Ozzy Osbourne does not need to prove his rightful place anymore.”

The record boasts guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, and longstanding righthand man and six-string beast Zakk Wylde who plays on the majority of the tracks. For the bulk of the album, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers held down drums, while the late Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters appears on three songs. Old friend and one-time OZZY band member Robert Trujillo of Metallica plays bass on most of the album’s tracks, with Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction supplying bass on a few songs.

OZZY OSBOURNE made his SDCC debut this past Friday (July 22) setting a record for the largest signing of the year on the convention room floor (with fans lined up for hours) at the annual event when he teamed up with collaborator Todd McFarlane at the Stern Pinball/Rebellion Republic booth at the sold-out convention. Prior to the signing, the two revealed the artwork for the McFarlane-designed comic book (available in limited edition album packages, with details on all pre-orders here) before signing a poster of the McFarlane album artwork.

Friday also marked the release of “Degradation Rules” (featuring Tony Iommi), the second single from OZZY’s upcoming album PATIENT NUMBER 9 out September 9. The song marks the first time that Black Sabbath co-founder, guitarist, and riff-master Tony Iommi appears on an OZZY solo album. Revolver noted that the single–written by OZZY with Andrew Watt, Robert Trujillo and Chad Smith–features “Iommi’s signature heavy riffery and even some wailing harmonica [by Ozzy] hearkening back to classic Sabbath” (7/22), while Guitar World praised the “gargantuan power chord electric guitar riff that could only come from the mind of Tony Iommi, and a face-melting wah-flavored solo” (7/22). Listen to “Degradation Rules” [feat. Tony Iommi] and watch a video here.

Degradation Rules” follows the album’s first single, the album’s title track which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Hard Rock Songs” chart which also topped the “Hard Rock Digital Song Sales” charts. “PATIENT NUMBER 9” [feat. Jeff Beck] remains the #1 rock song in the country this week.

PATIENT NUMBER 9 is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OSBOURNE’s new album and the first since his critically acclaimed, worldwide, chart-topping 2020 ORDINARY MAN release. Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on ORDINARY MAN), the new album marks OSBOURNE’s 13th solo studio album. It’s heavy, it’s hard-hitting, it’s historic–it’s everything you’d want from an OZZY OSBOURNE record and maybe more. Working with producer Watt for the second time, OZZY welcomed a dynamic A-list featured guests. The record boasts guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, and longstanding righthand man and six-string beast Zakk Wylde who plays on the majority of the tracks. For the bulk of the album, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers held down drums, while the late Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters appears on three songs. Old friend and one-time OZZY band member Robert Trujillo of Metallica plays bass on most of the album’s tracks, with Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction supplying bass on a few songs.
