After premiering his new solo song “Patient Number 9” featuring Jeff Beck earlier this morning, Ozzy Osbourne has now debuted the song’s video.
The clip, directed by famed comic book creator Todd McFarlane, finds the Prince of Darkness in a hospital slowly turning into a demon, cut with a fantastical cartoon adventure. At one point, cartoon Ozzy is about to once again bite the head off a bat, before an even bigger bat grabs him and takes revenge.
“Having worked with Ozzy in the past, I jumped at another opportunity to do so again…especially on the music side this time,” says McFarlane.
“In the harsh business called the music industry, any creative person who’s sustained a multi-decades career has shown the skill, talent and tenacity that will always garner my admiration,” he adds. “Ozzy has shown many of us creative folks that it’s indeed possible to make a living doing what you love for nearly an entire lifetime. Go, Ozzy!”
You can watch the video streaming now on YouTube.
As previously reported, “Patient Number 9” is the lead single and title track off the next Ozzy solo album, the follow-up to 2020’s Ordinary Man. The Andrew Watt-produced record features a number of guests, including Black Sabbath‘s Tony Iommi, 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.
Patient Number 9, the album, arrives September 9.
