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.

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.

OZZY is back.

Mark September 9 on your calendar as the release date for PATIENT NUMBER 9, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE’s new album and the first since his critically acclaimed, worldwide, chart-topping 2020 ORDINARY MAN release.

The album’s self-titled first single and video have today (Friday, June 24) been released worldwide. Listen to “Patient Number 9here and watch the video Grammy winner and multiple Grammy nominee Todd McFarlane-directed here.

“Having worked with Ozzy in the past, I jumped at another opportunity to do so again…especially on the music side this time,” Todd McFarlane says. “In the harsh business called the music industry, any creative person who’s sustained a multi-decades career has shown the skill, talent and tenacity that will always garner my admiration. Ozzy has shown many of us creative folks that it’s indeed possible to make a living doing what you love for nearly an entire lifetime. Go, Ozzy!”

Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on ORDINARY MAN) and set for release on Epic, 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.

Patient Number 9” was written by OZZY, Watt, Robert Trujillo, Chad Smith and Ali Tamposi and features a riveting solo from legendary guitarist Jeff Beck (one of the notable guest stars on the album, additional details below). The video marks the first collaboration from the project with Emmy-and Grammy-winning director/producer Todd McFarlane. It is highlighted by McFarlane’s signature illustrations interspersed with live OZZY vignettes in the role of “Patient Number 9,” which the revolutionary creative force in the world of comics and toys also filmed. In addition, this is the first-ever video to incorporate OZZY’s artwork: his hand-drawn demons were animated and can be seen during the Jeff Beck solo in the song.

Working with producer Watt for the second time, OZZY welcomed a dynamic A-list supporting cast. 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 made an appearance. 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. For the first time ever, Black Sabbath co-founder, guitarist, and riff-lord Tony Iommi appears on an OZZY solo album.

OZZY OSBOURNE
ON
‘PATIENT NUMBER 9’

Q: This is your first album to be released after the pandemic. What was going through your mind during the early days of the pandemic and are any of those feelings reflected in these songs?

OZZY: “Well, I was vaccinated and boosted and I still caught Covid in the end. My last album (Ordinary Man) was released just a few weeks before the pandemic started, and I was just about getting ready to go into the studio to work on this new one when the world shut down. It’s no secret that the last four years have been very difficult for me but making this album took my mind off of my problems.”

Q: The album features some players with whom have history. What was it like to be reunited with Tony Iommi musically?

OZZY: “It was really great working with Tony. He’s the riff master. No one can touch him in that respect. I only wish we had these songs for Black Sabbath’s 13 album.”

Q: Zakk contributes a lot on this album–how was the decision made to have him play since he didn’t play on the last album?

OZZY: “Zakk is part of my family and always will be.  The album needed that weight that his playing provides.  He just came in and really sorted things out.”

Q: Tell us about the first single, “Patient Number 9,” which features Jeff Beck. What do you feel he has contributed to the song?

OZZY: “The song is about a mental institution. Having someone like Jeff Beck play on my album is just incredible, a total honor. There’s no other guitar player that plays like him and his solo on ‘Patient Number 9’ is just jaw-dropping.”

PATIENT NUMBER 9 track listing:

  1. Patient Number 9 (feat. Jeff Beck)

OZZY OSBOURNE’S
‘DIARY OF A MADMAN’
40TH ANNIVERSARY EXPANDED DIGITAL EDITION
OUT TODAY (NOVEMBER 5)

ALBUM IS CELEBRATED WITH VIDEO CLIPS FOR
“FLYING HIGH AGAIN,” “OVER THE MOUNTAIN” AND “BELIEVER”
SPECIAL LIMITED-EDITION DISC
AVAILABLE AS PART OF WALMART’S
BLACK FRIDAY VINYL

With OZZY OSBOURNE’s DIARY OF A MADMAN celebrating its 40th anniversary this week, a variety of video clips have been released to commemorate the album. These include a new video for “Flying High Again,” (created from exclusive images from Ross Halfin’s newly released Randy Rhoads book), along with live versions of “Over the Mountain,” “Flying High Again,” and “Believer.” In addition, an exclusive blue swirl DIARY OF A MADMAN vinyl will be available November 12 via Walmart (in the U.S. only) as part of their annual Black Friday Vinyl. Click here to pre-order.

The updated digital release of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter’s 1981 DIARY OF A MADMAN album is available today (November 5) via all digital platforms and includes two live tracks previously unreleased digitally, including a live version of his Mainstream Rock Top Five hit “Flying High Again.”  Listen here.

DIARY OF A MADMAN is OZZY’s second studio release and the last album to feature 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Famer guitarist Randy Rhoads. The multi-platinum release (with five million albums sold worldwide) included the #2 Mainstream Rock track “Flying High Again.” The album was listed at #15 on Rolling Stone’s 2017 list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.” Kory Grow noted, “A year after proving he was still a vital musical force on his first post–Black Sabbath solo LP, 1980’s Blizzard of Ozz, Ozzy Osbourne demonstrated it wasn’t a one-time fluke with an album of poppy and gothic anthems like ‘Flying High Again’ and the almost classical closing title track. Guitarist Randy Rhoads, who died in a plane crash while touring for Diary in 1982, had already proven himself a virtuoso on Blizzard; here, he worked even harder to find the rare nexus between showboat chops and clever songwriting…”

THE DIARY OF A MADMAN 40th Anniversary Expanded Digital Edition track list is as follows:

  1. Over the Mountain
  2. Flying High Again
  3. You Can’t Kill Rock and Roll
  4. Believer
  5. Little Dolls
  6. Tonight
  7. S.A.T.O.
  8. Diary of a Madman
  9. Believer (live)*
  10. Flying High Again (live)*

SET FOR DECEMBER 3 RELEASE
AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

OZZY OSBOURNE and his longtime friend and colleague Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead are reunited one last time in the new animated clip for their mash-up duet of “Hellraiser.” The clip is an homage to their decades-long friendship. Produced by Hey Beautiful Jerk and directed by Mark Szumski and Gina Niespodziani, the video opens with OZZY and Lemmy hanging out at the infamous Rainbow Bar And Grill on Sunset Blvd. (Lemmy’s unofficial second home) surrounded by friends. The two are transported from a calm day playing video games in the bar to a post-apocalyptic world where they battle evil forces before ultimately returning to the bar, where they pick up their video game as if nothing had occurred. Watch the clip here.

“I’m so glad we were able to honor my dear friend Lemmy (Kilmister) with this duet and now the video,” OZZY says. “We immortalized him with a clip of the two of us being together, hanging out and getting into some trouble as we so often did.”

The song–which was co-written by the two and OZZY’s longtime guitarist Zakk Wylde–originally appeared on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter’s 1991 NO MORE TEARS album; Motorhead then recorded their own version and released it as a single from their 1992 March ör Die album.

The never-before-released “Hellraiser” mash-up with Ozzy and Lemmy was recently included on the digital 30th anniversary release of OZZY’s classic album NO MORE TEARS, released September 17 via Sony. In addition, “Hellraiser” will be issued as a stand-alone release on OZZY’s birthday, December 3. The special 10” black vinyl single features three versions of the song: the classic original OZZY track with Motorhead’s version of the same song as the B-side. It is available for pre-order here.

The album was listed at #15 on Rolling Stone’s 2017 list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.” Kory Grow noted, “A year after proving he was still a vital musical force on his first post–Black Sabbath solo LP, 1980’s Blizzard of Ozz, Ozzy Osbourne demonstrated it wasn’t a one-time fluke with an album of poppy and gothic anthems like ‘Flying High Again’ and the almost classical closing title track. Guitarist Randy Rhoads, who died in a plane crash while touring for Diary in 1982, had already proven himself a virtuoso on Blizzard; here, he worked even harder to find the rare nexus between showboat chops and clever songwriting…”

THE DIARY OF A MADMAN 40th Anniversary Expanded Digital Edition track list is as follows:

  1. Over the Mountain
  2. Flying High Again
  3. You Can’t Kill Rock and Roll

OZZY OSBOURNE’S ‘Down To Earth’ 20th Anniversary Expanded Digital Edition Out Today

DATE: OCTOBER 15, 2021

FROM: MARCEE RONDAN/MITCH SCHNEIDER

OZZY OSBOURNE’S
‘DOWN TO EARTH’ ALBUM’S
20TH ANNIVERSARY IS MARKED
WITH RELEASE OF THREE RARE OZZY TRACKS
TO DIGITAL PLATFORMS

Having recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of his NO MORE TEARS album with an expanded digital audio release, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE

will mark another album anniversary this month. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of 2001’s DOWN TO EARTH, three rare OZZY tracks–“No Place for Angels,” “Dreamer” (Acoustic Version), and “Gets Me Through” (Single Version)–have been released today (October 15) on digital platforms as part of a 20th anniversary expanded digital edition. Click here to listen.

The platinum-selling DOWN TO EARTH was OZZY’s eighth album and reached #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in the U.S and #19 on the UK Albums Chart. It produced two Top ten singles on the U.S. Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart: “Gets Me Through” and “Dreamer.” Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Tim Palmer, who co-wrote some of the album’s songs with OZZY, the album’s players include OZZY’s longtime collaborator and guitarist Zakk Wylde along with bassist Robert Trujillo (Metallica) and drummer Mike Bordin (Faith No More).

Rolling Stone said of the album, “Ozzy Osbourne is the most sentimental man in metal–and tough enough to let it show in ‘Gets Me Through’ and ‘Dreamer,’ the two best songs on Down to Earth. The first is a thumping thanksgiving, Osbourne’s admission that he is nothing like you think and would be even less without his fans…‘Dreamer’ is Osbourne imagining himself as John Lennon: pleading for calm and sense over piano, strings and, at the end, an ELO-style choir…He writes and sings about looking into the abyss – so you know which way to run. He’s never done it better.” Elsewhere, Amazon.com said: “‘Down to Earth’ displays enough eccentricity to keep one entertained and brimming with respect.”

As previously announced, last month, OZZY’s sixth solo album–the Top 10 (#7) and quadruple platinum NO MORE TEARS (Sony) was celebrated with an expanded digital audio album and two special editions–a 2LP black vinyl version and a special yellow and red 2LP vinyl version with a specially created booklet (exclusively at www.towerrecords.com).

The expanded DOWN TO EARTH track listing is as follows:

  1. Gets Me Through
  2. Facing Hell
  3. Dreamer
  4. No Easy Way Out
  5. That I Never Had
  6. You Know…(Pt. 1)
  7. Junkie
  8. Running out of Time
  9. Black Illusion
  10. Alive
  11. Can You Hear Them?
  12. **No Place for Angels
  13. **Dreamer (Acoustic Version)
  14. **Gets Me Through (Single Version)
