At the current Ozzfest, some info has been divulged about the first studio Ozzy solo album since 1995.

An ad announcing his impending solo album adorned Ozzy’s tour bus at Friday’s festival kickoff in Tinley Park, Illinois, and Black Sabbath’s performance was preceded by, essentially, a commercial for it. Ozzy’s first solo album since 1995’s Ozzmosis, scheduled for release October 16, is described by producer Tim Palmer (U2, Robert Plant) as "a contemporary rock record" reflecting influences ranging from the Beatles to some new bands that may have got their start on past Ozzfests.
