LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Ozzy Osbourne will release Scream, his first album in almost three years and 10th studio album overall the drop date is June 15 via Epic Records. Produced by OZZY and Kevin Churko, both of whom did the same honors for Ozzy’s 2007 worldwide million-seller Black Rain, the album will feature the first single "Let Me Hear You Scream." The fist-pumping anthemic song had its world premiere, during a prison riot scene, on "CSI: NY” on Wednesday, April 14 and arrived at radio that same day.
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recorded most of Scream at his Los Angeles home studio, The Bunker, and co-wrote all the songs, primarily with Churko. Notably, the album marks the first appearance of OZZY’s new guitar player, Gus G.
Ozzy’s band also features bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman. In addition to “Let Me Hear You Scream,” the album’s confirmed tracks are: "Diggin Me Down", "Let It Die", "Soul Sucker", "Fearless", "I Want It All", "Time", "Crucify" and “I Love You All."
Ozzy will also embark on an 18-month world tour (dates TBA) in support of Scream, with news about Ozzfest to emerge next week.
Ozzy recently stormed onto a non-music chart with his autobiography I Am Ozzy (Grand Central Publishing) — the rock icon’s unbelievable story told, for the first time, in his hilarious, witty, and inimitable voice — debuting at #2 on The New York Times best-sellers list.
