Ozzy Osbourne doesn’t share a whole lot of new original music these days. The self-proclaimed “Prince of Darkness” has already written a career’s worth of iconic rock anthems to keep his fans busy headbanging all night. That hasn’t stopped Ozzy from teaming up with Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, however, as the two deliver an epic one-two punch on Osbourne’s new single, “Straight To Hell”.
The intense rock track is just the second recording shared by Ozzy which will appear the singer’s forthcoming studio effort, Ordinary Man. The album will be Osbourne’s first full-length project of new music in a decade since 2010’s Screaming.
“Straight To Hells” welcomes the listener in with the triumphant sounds of a full choir before Slash’s heavily-distorted guitar comes in to the turn the energy up through the roof. The entire experience is that of an adrenaline-pumping rock and roll ride with two of music’s wildest conductors at the wheel–so tread cautiously.
Listen to Ozzy and Slash do what they do best in “Straight To Hell” below.

“Straight To Hell” follows the previously-shared “Under The Graveyard” which arrived just two weeks ago. Ordinary Man features contributions from producer Andrew Watt on guitar, GNR’s Duff McKagan on bass, and Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith on drums. when it arrives via Epic Records sometime in early 2020.
The song’s arrival on Friday comes just weeks after Osbourne was once again forced to postpone his U.K. and Europe tour scheduled for early 2020. The European and U.K. legs of Osbourne’s worldwide No More Tours 2 Tour was set to begin in January but has since been put on hold as Ozzy continues to recover from a fall he suffered last February which required surgery. This was the same injury that forced the famous hard rock singer to postpone all of his 2019 tour dates.
