Perhaps emboldened by the pop-crossover success of “Take What You Want,” his collaborative hit single with Post Malone and Travis Scott, Ozzy Osbourne is now working on a new song with Sir Elton John. Ozzy’s wife and manager Sharon broke the surprising news today (Monday, January 6th) on her daytime TV talk show The Talk. Discussing what her husband has in store for 2020, Sharon said, “A lot of good things. Wellness. And to get back with his fans, to get doing what he loves, which is touring and being out there with his fans. And yes, there’s new music, and it’s great. He’s got all his friends playing on it. He’s doing a song with Elton. There’s so much good stuff. Good things.” See the clip below.

It actually won’t be the first time that Elton John has been involved in Osbourne music. According to Ozzy’s daughter Kelly, when she and her dad worked on their 2003 duet on the Black Sabbath classic “Changes,” they argued about whether or not to include a choir on their version, and John ultimately settled the argument. “It was weird because we both fought so much,” Kelly revealed to MTV. “He wanted the choir on there and I didn’t. When we were out at Elton John’s house, and his was the final decision on whether to put the choir on there.”

Ozzy is, of course, prepping his highly anticipated new solo album, Ordinary Man, which is due out later this year. The LP will feature the already-released singles “Under the Graveyard” and “Straight to Hell.” The Prince of Darkness is also set to finally hit the road again, completing the postponed dates of his “No More Tours 2” run derailed due to health issues throughout 2019. Those are set to kick off in May in North American with Marilyn Manson playing in support — see that itinerary below.
