Ozzy has treated us to two music and three singles off of his forthcoming album. “Under The Graveyard” and “Straight To Hell” both rocked our socks. We all knew Ordinary Man would drop sometime in 2020 but the date was never given.

Well, The Prince of Darkness assuaged our worries. He dropped “Ordinary Man,” gave us a firm release date and listed all of the collaborations on his forthcoming album. Listen to “Ordinary Man” below.

The song is an incredible ballad with the Rocket Man himself tickling the ivories and rocking his verse like a god. Ozzy commented on the collaborations and “Ordinary Man” in particular.

“It all just came together,” Ozzy says of the guest stars “Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing ‘Ordinary Man,’ it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, ‘I wonder if he would sing on it?’ We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song.”

Speaking of the song, Ozzy discusses his status as a musician. “There’s a line in ‘Ordinary Man’ where I sing, ‘I don’t want to die an ordinary man,’ which I don’t think I will,” Ozzy laughs.

“Ordinary Man” Lyrics

I was unprepared for fame
Then everybody knew my name
No more lonely nights it’s all for you
I have traveled many miles
I’ve seen tears and I’ve seen smiles
Just remember that it’s all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Many times I lost control
They tried to kill my rock n roll
Just remember I’m still here for you

I don’t wanna say goodbye
When I do you’ll be alright
After all I did it all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
The album as a whole is expected to be incredible. It was recorded in just four days. Ozzy recently spoke about the album and its recording process.

“It was a lot of fun to do though it’s a lot different from my other albums,” Ozzy says. “We recorded it quickly, which I haven’t done since the first Black Sabbath album. This made it a different process, which I actually enjoyed.”

The release date of Ordinary Man is Feb. 21. The album can be preordered here. It features collaborations with Slash of Guns N’ Roses, Post Malone, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine and Elton John.
