Ozzy Osbourne is streaming the title track of his new album “Ordinary Man,” due out on February 21 as his first solo full-length effort in a decade.
The song features a guest appearance by Elton John. It’s the record’s third single, following “Under the Graveyard,” and “Straight to Hell,” which featured Slash.
The Black Sabbath singer’s collaboration with Elton John was previously announced by Sharon, but without confirming the song’s title or even if it was related to the new album. Oz stated via press release:
“It was a lot of fun to do though it’s a lot different from my other albums. We recorded it quickly, which I haven’t done since the first Black Sabbath album. This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed.
“It all just came together. Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’
“We asked, and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and plays piano on the song.”
