On his best album in decades, the most famous man in metal reaches again for big hooks and big statements, with help from new friends like Post Malone. In , by then years removed from his last great album , he launched the annual metal circus that borrowed his name. He soon became an early star of reality television , a lovably mumbling patriarch in a family of salacious misfits. He no longer needed to strive to make great music; he just had to be on time for an annual summer of sets and, like, get really bummed about jogging on his birthday. And so it goes with Ordinary Man , his first LP in a decade and his finest in two.
It was released on 21 February through Epic Records. It was produced by Andrew Watt and Louis Bell. It marks the first time that Osbourne collaborated with Watt and Bell. The album marks the longest gap between two albums from Osbourne to date, spanning almost ten years since Scream. The first single of the album, " Under the Graveyard ", was released on 8 November The third single and title track featuring singer Elton John was released on 10 January The fourth single " It's a Raid " featuring Post Malone was released on 20 February , a day before the release of the album.
He dusted himself off after Black Sabbath fired him as their frontman and redefined himself as an unflappable heavy-metal madman. As wild as his antics were and as dark as some of his music was, he always let his fans in on the joke. Ordinary Man brings Osbourne into new light. He was still recovering from an operation related to his fall last year when his daughter Kelly asked if he wanted to make a song with Post Malone — someone Ozzy had never heard of. Ozzy has said the album was therapeutic for him, and you can hear it in his voice. Some of the songs are elegiac, some are packed with comic-book laughs, but throughout the album he sings with a youthful vivacity that seems at odds with his seventy-something years. His goofball songs are more lighthearted than ever, and his more serious songs sound even more thoughtful. When he helped invent heavy metal half a century ago, he sang horror-movie lyrics with a conviction that was truly unsettling. Then the music gets heavy and his performance is heavier.

They believe that the body is a temple that needs to be worshiped, and that inner beauty is more important. What do you do while they are away. Our daughter is 6.
