Ozzy Osbourne Is Already Planning a Follow-Up to 'Ordinary Man'
"If it comes out anything like 'Ordinary Man' I'll be well pleased"
Published Feb 25, 2020Ozzy Osbourne released new album Ordinary Man last week, and in the wake of calling off an entire North American tour, he's bound to have a lot more time on his hands in between medical treatments this year. Fortunately for listeners, Ozzy is aiming to spend some of that working on a follow-up LP.
Osbourne detailed his plans today in a Reddit AMA, revealing that he plans to hit the studio with Ordinary Man producer Andrew Watt "next month."
"After I'm doing this doctor's run I'm going right back into the studio to make another album with Andrew Watt," Osbourne wrote to a fan. "If it comes out anything like Ordinary Man I'll be well pleased."
In response to another user, Osbourne explained, "I am making another album because while I can't tour, I can make music. What I learned from Ordinary Man, it got the juices flowing again. People say they write the best songs when they're unhappy, and I was unhappy last year."
Earlier this month, Osbourne axed the North American leg of his "No More Tours 2" outing to "allow [himself] to continue to recover from various health issues he has faced over the past year." In January, he revealed his diagnosis with Parkinson's disease.
