More Details On Ozzy Osbourne's Two New Forthcoming Albums (8/21/2006)

Ozzy Osbourne is currently working on two brand new studio albums. The first album is set for release in February 2007. Most of the music was recorded before Ozzfest in May with Mike Bordin (drums), Blasko (bass) and Zakk Wylde (guitar). Ozzy is currently working on recording the vocals. Zakk Wylde recently announced that he has to cancel 3 upcoming tour dates (Oct. 14 - House Of Blues, Myrtle Beach, SC; Oct. 16 - The Masquerade, Atlanta, GA; Oct. 18 - Rams Head Live, Baltimore, MD) with his band Black Label Socitey to finish up obligations in the studio in connection with the new album.

The 2nd album will be the soundtrack to Ozzy's musical about controversial Russian politician Grigory Rasputin. The album will be released initially, and then the play will debut on Broadway or as a touring show according to Osbourne. There is no current release date set.

In a recent interview, Ozzy said "We wrote a song called 'Rasputin' (for the 1995 Ozzmosis album), but then it never got used, you know, and then every now and again I'd try to find this tape of songs. We wrote a bunch of songs, and I put this tape on and thought, 'You know what? That would be a great musical.' It kind of grew on its own. Itís the traditional Fiddler on the Roof type of music, plus the kind of Beatley kind of influence. Thereís this wonderful song that goes, 'How dark it is before the dawn, the day begins, a child is born'. Itís beautiful. Iím really happy about it. I hope the rest of the world is. I spent 10 years of my fóking life in this thing."
