Ozzy wants you to hear his Scream
The inimitable wild (family) man of rock, Ozzy Osbourne is back with a bang on 14th June when he releases Scream, his first studio album in three years.
In the U.S. “Let Me Hear You Scream”--the album’s first single--is already Top Five (#5) on the Mainstream Rock Chart and Top Ten (#9) on the Active Rock chart in only its second week on the charts. The fist-pumping anthemic song had its world premiere, during a prison riot scene, on “CSI: NY” on Wednesday, April 14. Soon, OZZY will shoot a video for “Let Me Hear You Scream” with famed director Jonas Akerlund. Hear the track on Ozzy's Myspace page here.
SCREAM was produced by OZZY and Kevin Churko, both of whom did the same honors for OZZY’s 2007 worldwide million-seller Black Rain, the album. The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recorded most of the album 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.
OZZY will also embark on an 18-month world tour (dates TBA) in support of SCREAM, with along with Ozzfest dates and an iTunes gig at London's Roundhouse on July 3rd. OZZY also recently stormed onto a non-music chart with his autobiography I AM OZZY: 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 amid glowing reviews.
