The official cinematic music video for Ozzy Osbourne’s single “Under The Graveyard” can be seen below. For the clip, the BLACK SABBATH singer re-teamed with acclaimed film director, screenwriter and music video director Jonas Åkerlund (who worked with Osbourne on videos for “Let Me Hear You Scream” and “Gets Me Through”).
The semi-autobiographical video was filmed in Los Angeles and features actors Jack Kilmer (as Ozzy Osbourne) and Jessica Barden (as Sharon Osbourne). Set in the late 1970s 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 developed the story into a ‘mini movie,'” says Ozzy. “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.”
Last week, “Under The Graveyard” captured the top position on the U.S. Rock Radio chart. This marked Ozzy’s third No. 1 on this chart and his first in 10 years; “Under The Graveyard” is his first new solo music in as many years. It also heralds Ozzy’s forthcoming album, “Ordinary Man”, due out on Epic Records in early 2020.
