Black Sabbath - Geezer Butler: 'Black Sabbath Comeback Album Is Almost Done'

Black Sabbath have almost completed work on their comeback album, according to bassist Geezer Butler.

The group reunited for a handful of shows last year (12) and announced plans to release an album of new material, and now it seems the recording process is over.

Butler tells That Metal Show, "We’ve finished recording it. (Tony Iommi is) back in England putting down a couple of solos and we start mixing it in February.

"I’ve written most of the lyrics. Ozzy (Osbourne) comes up with the titles and then gives me an inspiration to write the lyrics. I think we’ve got 16 songs and I’ve written 14 sets of lyrics."

The new album, tentatively titled 13, will be released in June (13).

The bassist also used the interview to give fans a health update on bandmate Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in early 2012.

He adds, "He’s doing well; he’s really responding well. He has to go and have his medication every six weeks. But yeah, he’s really coming along well."
