For his new video for the #1 US rock track, “Under The Graveyard“, OZZY OSBOURNE re-teamed with acclaimed film director, screenwriter and music video director Jonas Akerlund (who worked with OSBOURNE on videos for Let Me Hear You Scream and Gets Me Through).
The semi-autobiographical video was recently filmed in Los Angeles and features actors Jack Kilmer (as OZZY OSBOURNE) and Jessica Barden (as Sharon Osbourne). Set in the late 70s in the early part of OZZY’s solo career, the clip shows the darkness of life and how a helping hand and love can change everything.
“For ‘Under the Graveyard’ Jonas (Akerlund) developed the story into a ‘mini-movie,’” says OZZY OSBOURNE. “But, to be quite honest, it’s hard for me to watch because it takes me back to some of the darkest times in my life. Thankfully Sharon was there to pick me up and believe in me. It was the first time she was there to fully support me and build me back up, but it certainly wasn’t the last.”
ORDINARY MAN was recorded in Los Angeles and features producer Andrew Watt on guitars, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses) on bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
