Following the release of “Patient Number 9”, Ozzy Osbourne is providing an inside look into the making of the album with a three-part video series featuring interviews and in-studio clips with some of featured performers. The series includes exclusive interviews with Ozzy and the album’s producer Andrew Watt. Sharon Osbourne, Tony Iommi (BLACK SABBATH),Ozzy‘s longtime guitarist Zakk Wylde, Robert Trujillo (METALLICA),Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES) and Mike McCready (PEARL JAM) also offer insight into the making of the album. The series was created and produced by Jack Osbourne with interviews conducted by renowned British journalist Phil Alexander. Watch the second “The Sabbath Connection” below.
“Patient Number 9” is available for purchase here.
Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on “Ordinary Man”) and set for release on Epic, the new album marks Osbourne‘s 13th solo studio album. It’s heavy, it’s hard-hitting, it’s historic — it’s everything you’d want from an Ozzy Osbourne record and maybe more.
The “Patient Number 9” title track was written by Ozzy, Watt, Robert Trujillo (METALLICA),Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) and Ali Tamposi and features a riveting solo from legendary guitarist Jeff Beck (one of the notable guest stars on the album; additional details below). The video marks the first collaboration from the project with McFarlane. It is highlighted by McFarlane‘s signature illustrations interspersed with live Ozzy vignettes in the role of “Patient Number 9,” which the revolutionary creative force in the world of comics and toys also filmed. In addition, this is the first-ever video to incorporate Ozzy‘s artwork: his hand-drawn demons were animated and can be seen during the Jeff Beck solo in the song.
