While we're only several months on from the release of Ozzy Osbourne's brilliant 4K-rated solo album Ordinary Man, The Prince Of Darkness has already started work on record number 13.

During an appearance on Steve-O's Wild Ride! podcast, Ozzy's wife Sharon confirmed that "you can't stop him" when it comes to new music, as well as praising his latest solo effort for being "sensational" (which it is).

"He’s starting his second album with [producer] Andrew Watt right now," she says. "And you can’t stop him. He’s doing it."

Sharon also added that Ozzy is currently "doing really, really good" after his many health issues over the past year or so, explaining (via ThePRP): "At one point, they thought he would never walk again, but he is – he’s walking and he’s doing great. He’s been hit by so much medically, but he’s doing good. He’s getting stronger every day.

"Oh, God. I mean, to be hit with the spinal injury, and then what it had done was it kind of started off the Parkinson’s that he had the gene for but was never activated – he just had the gene. It’s like having the breast cancer gene but it never comes into fruition – it never gets alive. And he had the Parkinson’s gene and this accident just sparked it off. So he kind of had a double dose of everything. But he’s doing good.

"It’s heartbreaking to see this. He’s had this ride in his life, and then suddenly – boom! – you are floored. And to have your health taken away… No matter what you’ve got money-wise or anything in the world, [it’s something you] can’t fix."

In other news, Ozzy, Sharon and their son Jack are set to reunite for a new TV series next month: The Osbournes Want To Believe.

The paranormal show will see Jack trying to convince his parents of various paranormal ongoings, from "Bigfoot to UFOs, poltergeists, creepy dolls and unexplained apparitions".

"My parents have always lived on the edge, even when it comes to believing in the supernatural," Jack admits. "I’m convinced they just haven’t seen enough evidence, so I’m making them watch the most undeniable footage caught on camera, including a few from my own personal experiences. My biggest challenge may be keeping their comments family friendly. It will be a classic Osbourne gathering!"
