As the June 15 (updated: June 22nd) release date approaches for OZZY OSBOURNE’s SCREAM (Epic Records)–his first album in three years and 10th studio album overall–the album cover artwork (seen right) and full track listing have been revealed.
“Let It Die”
”Let Me Hear You Scream”
”Life Won’t Wait”
”Diggin’ Me Down”
”I Want It More”
”I Love You All”
“Let Me Hear You Scream”–the album’s first single–is already Top Five (#5) on the Mainstream Rock Chart and Top Ten (#9) on the Active Rock chart in only its second week on the charts. The fist-pumping anthemic song had its world premiere, during a prison riot scene, on “CSI: NY” Wednesday, April 14. Next month, OZZY will shoot a video for “Let Me Hear You Scream” with famed director Jonas Akerlund.
SCREAM was produced by OZZY and Kevin Churko, both of whom did the same honors for OZZY’s 2007 worldwide million-seller Black Rain, the album. The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recorded most of the album at his Los Angeles home studio, The Bunker, and co-wrote all the songs, primarily with Churko. Notably, the album marks the first appearance of OZZY’s new guitar player, Gus G. OZZY’s band also features bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.
OZZY will also embark on an 18-month world tour (dates TBA) in support of SCREAM, with news about OZZFEST to emerge THIS Friday night, April 30.
