BLACK SABBATH frontman OZZY OSBOURNE has checked in from the studio where he, bassist Geezer Butler and guitarist Tony Iommi are working on their first studio album since 1978’s Never Say Die! Ozzy has posted this photo from the studio:
In a recent chat with Nzherald.co.nz, Osbourne revealed that the band have “done about 15 songs” for their reunion album.
“It’s been more than 30 years since I really seriously worked with the guys,” Ozzy says. “We had a try a few years back but nothing came of it. But for some reason the timing is right. Black Sabbath is very unique in the respect that nothing is formulated. It’s very unpredictable. I just hope the people who have waited all these years aren’t disappointed.”
“But we’ve done it all so what it boils down to now is the music,” Ozzy continues. “And that’s what got us where we are in the first place. We have come through the other side, we’re still able to work together, and that’s where the enjoyment comes from. It’s been a lot of fun making this record.”
