Ozzy Osbourne's new studio album will be released in January, according to his wife and manager Sharon Osbourne.

Sharon announced the news during an interview on satellite radio, in response to a question about her husband's health. She replied, "He's getting there. He had a very, very bad accident this year, but he's getting there. He's just finished an album, and the album is coming out in January. And he's doing good. He's very excited about the duet he did with Post (Malone) and also Travis Scott. It's doing great."

Ozzy recently provided guest vocals on Post Malone's song "Take What You Want." That session was overseen by producer Andrew Watt, and it led to Osbourne and Watt collaborating on the Black Sabbath singer's 12th solo LP.

Ozzy has not released a new solo effort since 2010's Scream, having spent the last few years touring with Sabbath in support of that band's 13 LP, as well as playing a number of solo shows. More recently, the singer has been recuperating at home after sustaining a string of health issues ad well as surgery, which scrapped all his 2019 shows.

Sharon admitted that Ozzy's spirits had been low for much of his recovery, but she added, "Now he's done his album, and it's coming out, and everybody's really pumped about it. He's happy -- he is." She also said that Ozzy will resume his "No More Tours 2" trek in 2020.

Sharon said that recording the album has been part of Ozzy's recovery from the health problems and injuries that kept him off the road in 2019.

She added that recording the LP has lifted his spirits.
