Who could’ve seen this coming?

Ozzy Osbourne, at 71 years old, after a series of injuries and health scares that forced several tour cancelations — and without an album (and barely a song) that anyone has given a shit about in over two decades — has the #1 song at rock radio in the U.S. right now with “Under the Graveyard,” The song is the first single from his upcoming album, Ordinary Man.

And it’s absolutely deserved: “Under the Graveyard” rocks, the Ozzman’s best output in some time, and it’s garnering critical praise from all corners. It was produced and co-written by 29-year-old guitarist/producer Andrew Watt, with whom Ozzy worked on Post Malone’s song “Take What You Want” (also burning up the charts right now). Watt helmed the sessions and handled guitar for the entire album, with Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith comprising the rest of the band on the record.

Ordinary Man has a tentative January 2020 release date. Its second single, “Straight to Hell,” which features a guest guitar solo from Slash, came out a couple of weeks back.

Ozzy has a whole boatload of tour dates planned for North America, the U.K. and Europe in 2020. Get ’em below.
