Ozzy Osbourne may not be planning a Black Sabbath reunion, but he is in the final stages of recording his next solo album. The disc was originally titled Soul Sucka, but Ozzy recently changed his mind about that. “When we put that on the Internet none of my fan base liked the title,” says Osbourne.
“They were like, ‘I can’t imagine me walking around the fucking house with the words ‘Soul Sucka’ on my T-shirt.’ So I was like, ‘Fuck it. I’ve got to come up with something else!’ ” The now untitled set is due out in July, the same month Osbourne says that Ozzfest will return after a one-year break. “After Ozzfest I’m doing the most extensive tour of my life,” he says. “It’ll be something like, 3,025 dates.”
Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that his next studio album, the first with new guitarist Gus G. of Firewind fame, will be released in the summer of next year, probably around June time. The album will be entitled, “Soul Sucka” and features a song of the same name. Two more revealed song titles for the album include “Let It Die” and “Diggin’ Me Down.” Stay tuned for further details.
Ozzy Osbourne says his family’s MTV reality show was an “experiment that went wildly out of control”.
The Osbournes, which ran from 2002 to 2005, showed the often chaotic domestic life of the star, his wife Sharon and children Jack and Kelly.
It introduced the Black Sabbath singer to a new crop of fans, who were hooked by his bumbling ineptitude at everyday tasks like working a TV remote.
But the star told BBC Radio 4’s Front Row the attention was “really creepy”.
“It was as if I went to bed in one world and woke up in a completely different world,” the 60-year-old said.
“We went down to this market in Beverley Hills where you can just walk around artwork and statues and dolls and all this stuff and I got this really creepy feeling.
“I look around. People aren’t looking, but I could feel eyes on me.
“I thought I was getting paranoid or something.”
The star, who is promoting his autobiography I Am Ozzy, said he was not keen to repeat the experience – even though his wife has forged a career as a TV personality on shows like the X Factor and America’s Got Talent.
“I don’t really want to do TV. I don’t like doing TV much. Sharon loves it.”
