Listen To Ozzy Osbourne And Post Malone’s New Collaboration, It’s A Raid

Ozzy Osbourne has released a new track with Post Malone, following their 2019 collaboration Take What You Want.

Ahead of the release of his new solo album Ordinary Man this Friday, Ozzy Osbourne has unveiled another track from the release – and it features hip-hop titan (and longtime metalhead) Post Malone.

The new song, It’s A Raid, follows their 2019 collaboration Take What You Want. Speaking to Kerrang! about how the pair began working together and how it inspired him to write and record Ordinary Man, The Prince Of Darkness joked: “I said, ‘Who the fuck’s that?’ But I ended up doing the song [Take What You Want, from Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding album] with him, and it was great. He was cool, and it felt good to be doing something again. One thing led to another, and Andrew [Watt, producer] said, ‘Do you wanna do some more? Carry on?’ And I went, ‘Yeah, let’s see what happens…’ So we just wrote an album, not really thinking about it too much, and it came out in no time.”

In fact, music has helped Ozzy a great deal over the past few years while he’s dealt with numerous health issues.

“We’d bounce the fucking melodies around until something came up, and we’d just go with it,” he continued. “It was fun. And it was so fucking good to be doing something. Because I’d be lying in bed going, ‘That’s it, I’m never gonna walk again,’ and this got me doing something and feeling good. And it was simple, it felt more like recording a fucking jam session. It’s not like a Pink Floyd thing where you’ve got to take a tab of acid to enjoy it – just crank the fucking thing. Go for it!”
