Ozzy Osbourne says that he can’t decide whether he wants to make a new full-length studio album or release standalone singes.
Osbourne hasn’t issued a solo album since 2010’s “Scream” and has spent the last few years touring with BLACK SABBATH before the legendary heavy metal act retired from the road.
Speaking to The Orange County Register, Ozzy confirmed that he “had four or five ideas” for a possible follow-up to “Scream” but admitted that “it’s not cost-effective to make it like that anymore. You actually lose money because people aren’t buying records anymore,” he said. “A couple of songs, maybe I’ll do that and put that out. I’ll go to Sharon [Osbourne, Ozzy‘s wife and manager] and say, ‘I want to do an album’ and then I’ll go to her and say, ‘I don’t want to do an album.’ I really can’t make up my mind.”
Ozzy told the Los Angeles radio show “Whiplash” in a recent interview that he had “a bunch of songs written” for his next disc. Pressed for more details about the effort, Ozzy said, “I’ve got about seven songs. One’s called ‘Mr. Armageddon’, one’s called ‘Crack Cocaine’.”
