Video is for newly crowned No. 1 single
Ozzy Osbourne has reteamed with acclaimed film director, screenwriter and music video director Jonas Akerlund for the video for his No. 1 rock track “Under The Graveyard.” Osbourne initially worked with Akerlund on videos for “Let Me Hear You Scream” and “Gets Me Through.”
The semi-autobiographical video was recently filmed in Los Angeles and features actors Jack Kilmer as Osbourne and Jessica Barden as Sharon Osbourne. Set in the late 70’s in the early part of Osbourne’s solo career, the clip shows the darkness of life and how a helping hand and love can change everything.
“For ‘Under the Graveyard’ Jonas (Akerlund) developed the story into a ‘mini movie,’” says Osbourne. “But, to be quite honest, it’s hard for me to watch because it takes me back to some of the darkest times in my life. Thankfully Sharon was there to pick me up and believe in me. It was the first time she was there to fully support me and build me back up, but it certainly wasn’t the last.”
“Under The Graveyard” recently captured the No. 1 position on the Rock Radio Chart and has eclipsed 5.4 million streams worldwide. It marks the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter’s third No. 1 on this chart and his first in ten years;” “Under The Graveyard” is his first new solo music in as many years. It’s the first track from Osbourne’s forthcoming album, Ordinary Man, due out on Epic Records in early 2020.
Ordinary Man was recorded in Los Angeles and features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
