A message from Ozzy states: "Spending my birthday tracking vocals on the new Black Sabbath album."
Ozzy also posted this photo from the studio:
Black Sabbath took part in a photo shoot last Friday (November 30th) with Sam Taylor-Wood (Samantha Taylor), an English filmmaker, photographer and visual artist. A photo Ozzy from the shoot can be seen below:
In a recent chat with Nzherald.co.nz, Osbourne revealed that the band have "done about 15 songs" for their reunion album, the first since 1978's Never Say Die!
"It's been more than 30 years since I really seriously worked with the guys," Ozzy says. "We had a try a few years back but nothing came of it. But for some reason the timing is right. Black Sabbath is very unique in the respect that nothing is formulated. It's very unpredictable. I just hope the people who have waited all these years aren't disappointed."
"But we've done it all so what it boils down to now is the music," Ozzy continues. "And that's what got us where we are in the first place. We have come through the other side, we're still able to work together, and that's where the enjoyment comes from. It's been a lot of fun making this record."
