Ozzy Osbourne to release special ‘Hellraiser’ vinyl in December


Sept. 17 (UPI) — Ozzy Osbourne will release a special vinyl single in December in honor of his birthday.

The 72-year-old singer will release a 10″ vinyl single featuring three versions of the song “Hellraiser” on his birthday Dec. 3.

“Hellraiser” was written by Osbourne, late Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, and musician Zakk Wylde. Osbourne released a new mashup featuring Kilmister this week.

The special vinyl will feature Osbourne’s original 1991 version of “Hellraiser,” Motorhead’s 1992 version, and the new mashup featuring Kilmister.

The new mashup also appears on the 30th anniversary version of Osbourne’s album No More Tears, released Friday.

Osbourne and Kilmister also collaborated on the songs “Mama, I’m Coming Home,” “Desire” and “I Don’t Want to Change the World.” Kilmister died at age 70 in December 2015.

In honor of the No More Tears anniversary release, the SiriusXM Ozzy’s Boneyard Channel will feature songs and insight from Osbourne and Wylde every hour. The celebration begins Friday and runs through Monday.
