Ozzy Osbourne has released the title track featuring the legendary Elton John and guitarist Slash, taken from his anticipated new album Ordinary Man.

Listen to the new track below.

"Ozzy loves the Beatles — it's his favourite band," drummer Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers said in a new interview. "So he's, like, 'We need something mid-tempo, not so heavy.' So Andrew had this little piano-idea thing, and we made it into this song, and it's epic. And Slash plays the solo. It's so epic, there are two Slash solos. ... We decided, 'Well, it has a piano. Who is a really good piano player? … Let's get the Rocket Man. … And he played the piano on the song, and he plays it beautifully, of course. And then we're like, 'Why don't we have him sing a verse?'"
