Ozzy Osbourne has released the title track and third single from his upcoming studio album, and the track is packed with appearances by Elton John and Slash.

“Ordinary Man” finds Osbourne facing his own mortality and the wild ups and downs of his life and career, which especially resonates considering how the Prince of Darkness struggled with a number of health issues in 2019 that prevented him from touring. Through it all, he simply states, “And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man.”

Sir Elton plays piano throughout the song and sings the second verse, while Slash contributes two different guitar solos to the melodic track.

Ordinary Man is now available for pre-save and pre-order on all major digital streaming platforms. An exact release date for the album, however, has yet to e announced.
