In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, vocalist for iconic metal band Black Sabbath, Ozzy Ozbourne has stated that the band will do one final album and world tour before calling it a final day.
In the words of the Prince of Darkness himself on writing the band’s fourteenth album, “I’ll fly to the fucking moon for it if I have to to!” By the sounds of things, the man is more than keen to get back out there one last time. As he explains, it was him whom really pushed the idea:
“I said to [manager and wife] Sharon, ‘What’s going on? Because if there’s no more SABBATH, I want to get on with my own thing again,’ and she came back and said, ‘Let me look into it.’ Three weeks later, I asked her about it again, and she said, ‘Oh, I still have to talk to so and so…’ and I said ‘Sharon, I ain’t fucking 21 anymore, if we’re going to do I want to do it before I’m 70!’ Time isn’t on our side! So she made the call and came back and said, ‘Yeah, the record company wants another album.’”
Although the trio haven’t begun writing, the band is said to have four or so songs left over from last year’s ‘13‘ that may or may not contribute to the record.
