Ozzy Osbourne teased the release of a new song yesterday (Thursday), just weeks after revealing that a recent collaboration with Post Malone inspired his new album. “Under the Graveyard,” the first single off his unnamed new record ends a nearly 10-year drought of new music dating back to the release of 2010’s Scream.

“Under the Graveyard” is a non-traditional song for Ozzy and the newfound influence presents itself in the genre-hopping arrangement. Fuzz-drenched lead guitars, romping bass lines and alt-rock undertones make this one hard to define. The frontman’s performance is strong and reflective, admitting past mistakes while exposing vulnerability and inner conflict.

Listen to “Under the Graveyard” toward the bottom of the page and check out the song's lyrics below via Genius:

[Verse 1]
Today, I woke up and I hate myself
Death doesn't answer when I cry for help
No high could save me from the depths of Hell
I'll drown my mind until I'm someone else

[Pre-Chorus]
Doubt take care of me, be scared of me
My misery owns me
I don't wanna be my enemy
My misery owns me now

[Chorus]
Under the graveyard
We're all rotting bones
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Everything you are
Can't take it when you go
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I ain't livin' this lie no more
Ain't livin' this lie no more
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
It's cold in the graveyard
We all die alone

[Verse 2]
Cover my eyes so I can't see clear
One sip away from everything I fear
Ashes to ashes, watch me disappear
Closer to home because the end is near

[Pre-Chorus]
Doubt take care of me, be scared of me
My misery owns me
I don't wanna be my enemy
My misery owns me now

[Chorus]
Under the graveyard
We're all rotting bones
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Everything you are
Can't take it when you go
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I ain't livin' this lie no more
Ain't livin' this lie no more
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
It's cold in the graveyard
We all die alone

[Bridge]
(I'm waiting for you)
(You, you, you, you)

[Chorus]
Under the graveyard
We're all rotting bones
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Everything you are
Can't take it when you go
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I ain't livin' this lie no more
Ain't livin' this lie no more
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
It's cold in the graveyard
We all die alone
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

The new record is expected to arrive sometime in 2020. The material came quickly following Ozzy’s guest appearance on Post Malone’s “Take What You Want” and an album announcement came without any forewarning that something was in the works.

Details will later surface as to who was involved in the writing process, but what we do know is that the sessions did not involve guitarist Zakk Wylde, who remains in Ozzy’s live lineup.

Fans are hopeful Ozzy will soon fully recovered from a fall at home, which resulted in metal rods being dislodged in his body.

The injury led to the rescheduling of multiple legs of his farewell tour and he most recent postponement came in October, when a string of European dates booked for next year had to be pushed back. The singer insisted he has every intention of playing more shows and assured everyone, “I’m not dying.” We wish all the power and strength to Ozzy as he works toward getting back to the stage.
