Ozzy says he wants to record with the band again, “sooner rather than later.”
Black Sabbath have one more album and a tour in the pipeline
Speaking to Metal Hammer, Osbourne said the band will be working with producer Rick Rubin again to record the follow up to 2013’s hugely successful 13 album.
The 65 year old anticipated that recording sessions would begin early next year, depending on the health of guitarist Tony Iommi who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012.
Osbourne said he wanted the album recorded "sooner rather than later” and added, "I don't know if we'll be writing in England or L.A., but I'll fly to the fucking moon for it if I have to.”
The original Black Sabbath line-up, consisting of Osbourne, Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward reunited in 2011 to record the 13 album. The band then subsequently embarked on a lengthily tour, playing dates across North America and Europe and ending with a gig at London’s Hyde Park this July.
Speaking about the reunion Osbourne told Metal Hammer, “The whole Sabbath experience this time around was great . We all made friends, we didn’t fuck around, we all knew that we had a job to do, and we did it. It was a lot of fun.”
“So we’re going to do one more album, and a final tour. Once the dust settled after the last tour we started discussing the idea, because we were getting asked about it all the time,”he continued.
For now, Osbourne has his own release to think about, a CD and DVD both titled Memoirs of a Madman. The album will be a collection of his biggest hits, while the two-disc DVD compiles his music videos along with a host of unreleased live performances.
