Ozzy Osbourne is gearing up for his next album after the star-studded Patient Number 9.
In a recent interview with Brent Porche from Philadelphia’s 93.3 WMMR, Ozzy disclosed his intentions to put more focus on his own artistry in his upcoming studio album, which he plans to start recording early next year.
Returning to the Studio with Andrew Watt
Once again, Ozzy will join forces with producer Andrew Watt, but Watt’s schedule has become busier after their initial collaboration on the 2020 Ordinary Man album. Ozzy shared:
“Being laid up for about five years because of the surgery thing and the fall I had, I was going nuts. So I met Andrew Watt and we did a couple of albums together. And I’m waiting for him to get free to do another album. ‘Cause everybody wants to use him now.”
Unlike the previous two albums, Ozzy is taking a more structured approach to the new album, aiming to have the material well-prepared before entering the studio. He explained:
“Personally, I prefer to have everything in order before hitting the studio. But the last couple of albums I had to do differently. A lot of it was done as we went along.”
As for guest appearances on the upcoming album, Ozzy hinted, “It’s gonna be maybe one,” keeping the mystery of that collaborator under wraps.
New Music on the Horizon
In September, Ozzy expressed his desire to create another studio album, emphasizing his ongoing commitment to fitness. He mentioned:
“I’ve released two albums relatively recently, Ordinary Man in 2020 and Patient Number 9 in 2022, but I’m determined to put out one more album and then go back on the road.”
When discussing his timeline, Ozzy then added:
“I’m just starting to work on it now, and we’ll be recording in the early part of next year. I want to take my time with this one.”
With Ozzy’s history of impressive guest features on his previous albums, it raises the question of who fans would like to see returning for another collaboration or if they’d prefer a fresh face in the mix.
