Ozzy Osbourne to Release New Album Early Next Year
Ozzy Osbourne’s had a rough 2019 with numerous health ailments and the inability to tour.. According to his wife Sharon, his solo follow-up to 2010’s Scream is complete, with a January 2020 expected release.
Mrs. Osbourne was a recent guest on SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle Show, where she provided a health update on Ozzy and his upcoming record saying”He’s getting there,” she began. “He’s just finished an album, the album’s coming out [in] January.”
She described his excitement over the recent Post Malone song “Take What You Want,” which he provided guest vocals on, along with Travis Scott. “It’s doing great, it’s on Top 40 radio and it’s climbing every week,” she added. “It’s been a huge boost for him because he felt literally worthless.”
According to Sharon, the Prince of Darkness was “near to tears” watching anything on television that had to do with bands going on tour and music documentaries because of his tour cancellations this year. “He goes, ‘I miss my life, I want my life back.’ It’s been really hard on him. But he’s getting there. He’ll be back,” she emphasized.
Sharon also hinted that Ozzy could do a residency in Vegas in the future saying. “He’s not totally retiring, but the touring — he won’t do anymore touring,” his wife added, though acknowledging he would absolutely consider doing a Las Vegas-type residency.
Robert Plant Reveals What He Calls the Band’s Fourth Album
Led Zeppelin’s fourth album is known as Led Zeppelin IV or The Four Symbols, because of the symbols adopted by the four band members found on the wordless cover.
Singer Robret Plant was recently asked by Matt Everett, the host of the singer’s Digging Deep podcast series, what he called the album. “I don’t know,” he replied. “In those days in Zeppelin, we were so much of a deal – in fact, it becomes almost like a kind of Spinal Tap thing where, sometime you can’t put the record out, even though you’ve finished it, because you haven’t got the artwork right.”

He said the conversation had gone something like: “‘Are you going to put the name on that album?’ ‘Are you kidding? Put the name of the band on the album cover? That’s far too corporate!’ … But of course, we want everybody to know that [it’s ours], to buy it, sell it, hate it, love it and all that. So, yeah, I don’t know what it’s called. ‘The Four Symbols’ is sometimes what it’s called.”
During the discussion Plant chose “The Battle of Evermore” as his favourite track.
