Ozzy Osbourne has released the title track featuring Sir Elton John “Ordinary Man”. “Ordinary Man will be released on Friday, February 21 making it his first new solo music in almost 10 years.
“Ordinary Man” will be available as a standard CD, deluxe CD, black vinyl, deluxe gatefold swirl color vinyl, picture disc and digital album. In addition, all physical copies of the album will include a unique code that will allow the purchaser to enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of over 300 Ozzy prizes (including an official Ozzy laminate to get into any show on the 2020 “No More Tours 2”, meet-and-greets with Ozzy, a gift certificate to the Ozzy global store and much more).
“It all just came together,” Ozzy explains of the guest stars. “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 play piano on the song.”
“And so on this ‘Ordinary Man’ song, you’ve got Duff McKagan, Slash, Andrew Watt, wonderboy producer, writer, hot-shit guy of the moment, great musician,” he continued. “You’ve got the Prince Of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne. You’ve got Sir Elton John, and a drummer from some other band. You’ve got the fucking Avengers of rock and roll. It’s so fucking good. And at the end of this song, every time I hear it, there’s this string thing at the end. We went to Abbey Road [studios], and it’s strings and a choir. It’s fucking epic, and every time I hear it, I’m, like, ‘And the Grammy goes to…'”
