Preview Ozzy Osbourne's New Video "Let Me Hear You Scream"

The Prince of Darkness teams up with Jonas Ã…kerlund for bloody new clip

May 25, 2010 2:04 PM ET

On June 22nd, Ozzy Osbourne will return with his 10th solo album Scream — and the Prince of Darkness is making sure you'll hear his call. To coincide with the release, 61-year-old Osbourne will release a video for lead-off track "Let Me Hear You Scream." Expect it to be an over-the-top spectacle: the clip, replete with fake blood and giant injectable needles, was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, the Swedish filmmaker who helmed Lady Gaga's epic "Telephone" mini-movie. Check out an exclusive teaser for the video above.

Osbourne is gearing up for a busy year-and-a-half. To promote Scream, he'll hit the road for a six-date run on Ozzfest before embarking on an 18-month world tour, his longest ever. Later this year, Osbourne will release reissues of his first two solo albums — 1980's Blizzard of Ozz and 1981's Diary of a Madman — followed by — no joke — a Christmas album titled Black Christmas.

Song Stories

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
