In November, Ozzy Osbourne released his first new solo song in nearly a decade, the morbid power ballad, “Under the Graveyard.” The cut is the lead single off the heavy-metal pioneer’s forthcoming album Ordinary Man, the follow-up to 2010’s Scream. Today (December 19th), the Prince of Darkness unveiled the song’s cinematic music video, which was directed by Jonas Åkerlund and stars Val Kilmer’s son Jack as a young rocker battling addiction on the streets of L.A., and who bears a striking resemblance in both appearance and storyline to Ozzy himself. It’s not the first time Jack Kilmer has played a troubled metal musician — he notably appeared as Mayhem singer Pelle “Dead” Ohlin in Åkerlund’s Lords of Chaos.

“For ‘Under the Graveyard,’ Jonas developed the story into a mini movie,” Ozzy said in a statement. “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.”

Ordinary Man is expected to drop sometime in early 2020. Ozzy made the LP with Post Malone producer Andrew Watt, following the recording of his hit song with the rapper, “Take What You Want.” The album features Watt on guitars, and Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith on bass and drums, respectively. Slash makes a guest appearance on its second single “Straight to Hell.”
