Tomorrow, Ozzy Osbourne will release his first new solo track in nine years. The Prince of Darkness shared a teaser for the new cut online, featuring an acoustic guitar arpeggio and some atmospheric vocals.

Ozzy’s latest solo effort, Scream, came in 2010, peaking at No. 12 on the Billboard 200. Osbourne later put his solo career on hiatus while focusing on Black Sabbath’s massive reunion, which was initially announced on Nov. 11, 2011 (11-11-11). Sabbath’s revival got the metal blueprinters a Grammy, their first No. 1 album in the United States and extremely successful tours across the globe.

Following Sabbath’s 2017 cessation, Ozzy began focusing heavily on his solo work, welcoming Zakk Wylde back into the fold. However, a nasty fall in early 2019 dislodged metal rods inside his body, leaving Ozzy in “absolute agony” for the first four months of recovery and physical therapy. He’s expected to continue working on his health until the end of the year.

All that plus neck surgery and blood clots gave Ozzy a hellish 2019, but 2020 looks promising with rescheduled tour dates and a new album. Osbourne revealed late last month that the new album is complete and is expected to arrive in January.

The name of Ozzy’s new song hasn’t been revealed yet, but a teaser from his official Twitter gives a clue on what to expect:

Stay tuned and get ready for Ozzy’s triumphant return.
