OZZY OSBOURNE and LEMMY KILMISTER Duet On “Hellraiser”!
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE is celebrating the 30th anniversary of his quadruple-platinum album "No More Tears."
His sixth studio solo album will be celebrated with an expanded digital audio album due out September 17 via Sony. Two special editions--a 2LP black vinyl version and a special yellow and red 2LP vinyl version with a specially created booklet (exclusively at www.towerrecords.com)--will be released simultaneously. Pre-order the album here.
More than 30 years after the release of NO MORE TEARS, music fans will at last hear a new version of the album’s “Hellraiser.” The digital release of the album, due out September 17 (Sony), will include an updated interpretation of the track featuring the first-ever official version of the song with a mash-up of vocals from OZZY and the song’s co-writer, longtime friend and colleague Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. "Hellraiser" originally appeared on NO MORE TEARS; Motorhead then recorded their own version and released it as a single from their 1992 March ör Die album. "Hellraiser" was one of four songs from NO MORE TEARS co-written by OZZY with Lemmy; the others are "Mama, I'm Coming Home,” "Desire,” and "I Don't Want to Change the World.” Listen to the track here.
“I hope everyone enjoys the song,” OZZY says. “This is just a small way to honor my friend Lemmy. Sharon and I talk a lot about how much we miss him.”
In its release, NO MORE TEARS yielded four top ten singles on the Billboard Rock Tracks chart, "Mama, I'm Coming Home" (#2), "Road To Nowhere" (#3), "Time After Time" (#6) and the title track (#10). In addition, the album’s "I Don't Want to Change the World" earned OZZY his first Grammy for a live version of the track that was featured on his 1993 LIVE AND LOUD album. The album has remained an OZZY classic, earning a spot (#22) on Loudwire’s "Top 90 Hard Rock + Metal Albums of the '90s" with Ultimate Classic Rock including No More Tears on their list "Top 100 '90s Rock Albums."
