Ordinary Man is the upcoming twelfth studio album by English heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne. The album has a tentative release date of January 2020, with its ten-year gap being the longest between two albums from Osbourne to date. The first single off the album titled "Under the Graveyard" was released on 8 November 2019.
Ordinary Man will be Ozzy's first studio album in ten years as a solo artist, following Scream (2010). It is also his first album overall since he reunited with Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler for their final album 13 (2013), with him as lead singer. After the release of 13, they went on a farewell tour titled The End Tour, which ended in Birmingham, England on February 2017. After Black Sabbath concluded their farewell tour, Ozzy kept working on new material. In September 2019, Ozzy released "Take What You Want", a featured single on Post Malone's third album Hollywood's Bleeding, which went on to become his first Billboard Hot 100 top 10 in over 30 years, thus making it the longest gap between top 10 appearances in the chart's history. On 8 November 2019, it was revealed that Ozzy had worked with Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith on the album. Speaking about the recording, Ozzy commented that the entire album process is done "in just a short time", adding "Duff and Chad came in and we would go in and jam during the day and I would go work out the songs in the evenings. I previously had said to Sharon [Osbourne, Ozzy's wife and manager] I should be doing an album, but in the back of my mind I was going, 'I haven't got the fucking strength.' But Andrew pulled it out of me. I really hope people listen to it and enjoy it, because I put my heart and soul into this album."
