McFarlane and Ozzy Team Up For New Project
Jul 20, 2022
Comic book legend Todd McFarlane teams with rock legend Ozzy Osborne for the limited edition Patient Number 9 Comic & Mini-Jacket CD PREVIEWS Exclusive Variant, based on Ozzy's hit album.
This marks the latest collaboration with Grammy winner and multiple Grammy nominee McFarlane who recently directed the video for Ozzy’s new single “Patient Number 9”).
The album’s first single “Patient Number 9” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot Hard Rock Songs” chart and also tops the “Hard Rock Digital Song Sales” charts. It also sits in the Top 25 on the “Hot Rock Songs,” “Hot Rock & Alternative Songs,” “Rock & Alternative Airplay,” “Mainstream Rock Airplay” charts. The song earned 2.2 million radio audience impressions, 1.4 million official U.S. streams in the June 24-30 tracking week. “Patient Number 9” features a riveting solo from legendary guitarist Jeff Beck (one of the notable guest stars on the album; additional details below).
Patient Number 9 is Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter Osbourne’s new album and the first since his critically acclaimed, worldwide, chart-topping 2020 Ordinary Man release. Produced by Andrew Watt (who handled the same duties on Ordinary Man), the new album marks Osbourne’s 13th solo studio album. It’s heavy, it’s hard-hitting, it’s historic -- it’s everything you’d want from an Ozzy Osbourne record and maybe more. Working with producer Watt for the second time, Ozzy welcomed a dynamic A-list featured guests. For the first time ever, Black Sabbath co-founder, guitarist, and riff-master Tony Iommi appears on an Ozzy solo album. The record also boasts guitarists Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, and longstanding righthand man and six-string beast Zakk Wylde who plays on the majority of the tracks. For the bulk of the album, Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers held down drums, while the late Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters appears on three songs. Old friend and one-time Ozzy band member Robert Trujillo of Metallica plays bass on most of the album’s tracks, with Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction supplying bass on a few songs.
Patient Number 9 arrives on September 21, 2022 at your local comic shop. Reserve your copy with PREVIEWSworld Pullbox. Limited to 5,000 units.
