Ozzy Osbourne Is Planning To Record Another Album Next Month

Ozzy Osbourne is already looking to record another album, having just released new LP Ordinary Man last week.

The Prince Of Darkness unveiled his twelfth studio album on Friday, after a ten-year wait between solo releases. But with the creative juices still flowing, Ozzy has said he's planning to start recording the follow-up sooner rater than later.

Speaking to iHeart Radio’s Eddie Pappani, Ozzy said: “I'm hoping that next month I'll go and do another album with Andrew [Watt, Ordinary Man producer]. I might as well, while I'm not doing gigs."

Ozzy was forced to postpone the North American leg of his upcoming No More Tours II world tour as he'll be in Switzerland undergoing treatment for Parkinson's. You'd think such an obstacle would be good reason to call it a day, but not for Ozzy.

“I've thought about it," he said. "I sometimes think crazy thoughts like that. I cannot retire. I love [the fans].”

Speaking to Kerrang! recently, Ozzy said of the Ordinary Man recording process, “There’s so much joy in it... And it picked me up out of my blues, definitely.

"We’ve captured the essence of fun. And it felt good to achieve something. It’s like swimming from one side of the world to the other and you go: ‘There’s land!’ It made me think, ‘I’m not fucking done yet!’”

Last week, Ozzy announced that his North American run is postponed and not cancelled as previously reported.

“I cannot go on the road until I’m 100 per cent confident that I can pull it off," he told "’Cause if I go out now and I can’t carry on, people are gonna think that I’ve lost the plot. So I’m not gonna go out there until I can give them the show that I wanna give them, ’cause it’s not fair to them.”
