Ozzy Osbourne‘s new album Patient Number 9, includes a song that might come out as controversial.
The upcoming album is set for release on Sept. 9, and the Prince of Darkness admits that the track “One of Those Days,” may receive criticisms as it contains the lyric: “One of those days that I don’t believe in Jesus.” The former Black Sabbath singer revealed to Classic Rock magazine:
“That’s going to cause shit, I suppose.”
But then, he explained:
“It’s not an ‘I am an anti-Christ song.
“It’s about those days when everything goes fucking wrong, and you’re going nuts trying to fix everything up.”
Eric Clapton plays guitar on the track and Osbourne revealed that when the guitarist first heard the line, he was alarmed. Osbourne recalled:
“He said: ‘Oh, I’m not sure about that lyric.’
“So we tried to replace it with some alternatives. We did ‘One of those days where I don’t believe in Christmas,’ but it didn’t sound right. Losing faith in Jesus makes much more sense when the world is turning to shit.”
Nevertheless, the singer noted that he’s proud about his latest project. He added:
“I think that song and the whole album turned out great.
“But, that said, I’ve never gone into the studio and said, ‘This time I think I’ll make a bad record.’ The best record is always the one you do next.”
Although, Osbourne is hoping for the album to reach something. He continued:
“I still want to have a number one record in England.
“And this album is worthy of being the one. No one thought Sabbath would hit number one with our last album, 13, so why not dream? I’ve done my best and I’m happy, now it’s up to the fans to decide its fate. Whatever happens, I won’t let the world forget about me.”
