The "Let Me Hear You Scream" video will be filmed this month with renowned Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund, who has previously worked with METALLICA, SATYRICON, RAMMSTEIN, MADONNA and THE PRODIGY, among others.
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recorded most of "Scream" at his Los Angeles home studio, The Bunker, and co-wrote all the songs, primarily with Churko. Notably, the album marks the first appearance of Ozzy's new guitar player, Gus G. (FIREWIND, ex-DREAM EVIL, ARCH ENEMY). Ozzy's band also features bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, drummer Tommy Clufetos (ex-ROB ZOMBIE, ALICE COOPER) and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.
Ozzy will embark on an 18-month world tour in support of "Scream", which will include six Ozzfest dates in August.
Ozzy Osbourne's career has spanned four decades and his music is as relevant today as ever.

In 2003, he was honored with a star on Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame. Osbourne is not only a legend and an icon, but is a pioneer in his genre of music.
