Released on November 29, the set will include all of Ozzy’s solo work from 1980’s ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ to 2010’s ‘Scream’. ‘Tribute’, ‘Live & Loud’ and ‘Live at Budokan’ will be included, as will the EPs, ‘Mr Crowley’ and ‘Just Say Ozzy.’
A previously unreleased version of ‘See You On The Other Side’ will be included, as will a collection of non-album tracks.
Via a press release, Osborne said: “This one’s the most elaborate collection so far. It’s very well thought-out and well put together.”
He added: “It’s got everything in there that you possibly could want and some surprises along the way. The sound of a vinyl record is different, and I do believe that vinyl sounds better.”
It also comes with a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek info-commercial which you can watch below.
The Black Sabbath frontman has spoken this week about the recovery process he’s faced since he suffered a fall in his LA home in January which caused him to “re-injure his back, neck and shoulders”. The injury and subsequent surgery forced Osbourne to reschedule all of his 2019 live dates on the No More Tours 2 Tour for 2020.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about his recovery — in which he said that he “was in agony beyond anything I ever experienced before in my life” after the surgery – Osbourne said that he’d been recording music while recuperating to keep himself occupied.
Joking that the nine song ideas he’d so far recorded would end up on a solo album called ‘Recuperation’, Osbourne added: “The most depressing thing I’ve been thinking is, ‘Am I gonna walk properly again? Am I gonna be able to perform again?’
“I thought, ‘Well, if I just lay there watching fucking World at War again, I’m not gonna fucking do anything.’ So do what you can, even if it’s a little, just so you’re doing stuff.”
All of Osbourne’s 2019 tour dates were rescheduled for next year, starting with a January 31, 2020 date in Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena. The UK and Ireland tour dates are listed below.
31 – Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham
02 – 3 Arena, Dublin
