Ozzy Osbourne Speaks On New Black Sabbath

Ahead of the release of 13, Black Sabbath's latest album, fronter Ozzy Osbourne has spoke with Rolling Stone magazine about the LPs influences, or lack thereof:

"I don't know what's going on in the music world. My wife mentions bands to me and I don't know what the f- she's talking about. We just do what we always did."

Producer Rick Rubin added his thoughts on 13's place within the Sabbath canon:

"I wanted to make an album that stood alongside their first four albums. The first album wasn't a straightforward heavy metal record. You could hear the jazz influence, so that was the goal, and to capture that live interaction."

13 is due sometime in June.
