Ozzy Osbourne has premiered a new solo song called “Patient Number 9.”
The track, which features guitar icon Jeff Beck, is available now via digital outlets. An accompanying video, directed by famed comic book artist Todd McFarlane, is set to premiere Friday at 10 a.m. ET on YouTube.
“Patient Number 9” is the first preview off Ozzy’s next solo album, also titled Patient Number 9, the follow-up to 2020’s Ordinary Man. Beck is one of the many guests to be featured on the upcoming record, along with Black Sabbath‘s Tony Iommi, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam‘s Mike McCready, Black Label Society‘s Zakk Wylde and Metallica‘s Robert Trujillo.
Patient Number 9, the album, is due out September 9.
The new song arrives amid a rough couple of health months for Ozzy, who tested positive for COVID-19 in April and underwent surgery earlier in June. The 73-year-old rocker has since returned home from the hospital and is “recuperating comfortably.”
