Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi are back together on a new song.
The Black Sabbath bandmates have reunited for a solo Ozzy track called “Degradation Rules,” which will appear on the Prince of Darkness’ upcoming solo album, Patient Number 9.
“Degradation Rules” features Iommi’s iconic guitar riffage, paired with a bluesy harmonica. You can listen to the song now via digital outlets.
Patient Number 9, which marks the first solo Ozzy record to feature Iommi, will be released September 9. It also includes the previously released Jeff Beck-featuring title track as well as collaborations with artists, such as Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam‘s Mike McCready, Black Label Society‘s Zakk Wylde, Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses, Jane’s Addiction‘s Chris Chaney and Metallica‘s Robert Trujillo.
Additionally, late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins makes a posthumous appearance.
Ozzy, meanwhile, is set to make his debut at San Diego Comic-Con Friday to reveal a new comic book designed by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, who directed the “Patient Number 9” music video. His appearance at the famed pop culture celebration is being promoted with a giant, 25-foot Ozzy inflatable outside of the convention center.
