Ozzy Osbourne goes ‘Straight to Hell’ on new track

Second release from forthcoming Ordinary Man

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne has released his next track “Straight To Hell.” It marks the second song to be released from his first album in ten years, Ordinary Man, due out on Epic Records in early 2020.

On the full-on rocker “Straight To Hell,” Osbourne takes listeners to the heart of darkness–“Something is missing and you don’t know why”–with Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash along for this devilish ride, delivering scorched-earth riffs.

“Straight To Hell” follows hot on the heels of “Under The Graveyard,” which arrived two weeks ago and has already garnered more than 2.8 million global streams in its first week. Rolling Stone noted “doom and gloom is what makes an Ozzy song great, and it’s what make this one a keeper,” and NPR wrote, “It sounds like Ozzy and, remarkably, Ozzy’s voice can still tear through your soul.”

This week, Osbourne surprised a sold out audience at the Forum in Los Angeles, when he joined Post Malone and Travis Scott for the first-ever live rendition of their record-breaking collaboration “Take What You Want.” This Sunday, he reconvenes with Post and Scott at the American Music Awards for the first television performance of the song and what promises to be another unforgettable display.

Osbourne wrote and recorded Ordinary Man in Los Angeles with producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
