Black Sabbath Offer Early Stream of New Album ’13’ via iTunes

Black Sabbath, '13'
Vertigo/Universal Records

It may have taken 35 years to get here, but you can finally hear a new Black Sabbath record featuring lead vocals from Ozzy Osbourne.

We’re talking, of course, about ’13,’ the long-awaited Sabbath LP that finds Osbourne reuniting in the studio with guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler for the first time since ‘Never Say Die!’ in 1978. Produced by Rick Rubin, the eight-song set is one of 2013’s most highly anticipated new rock releases — and now North American fans can hear it a week before its official June 11 arrival, thanks to iTunes, where it’s streaming as part of the online store’s most recent pre-release streaming promotion. To open the stream, follow this link and click ‘Open in iTunes.’

“It’s a masterpiece as far as I’m concerned,” Osbourne recently told the West Australian. “I heard the finished thing last week and I’ve got to be truthful with you, I was so bowled over by the way it sounded. If you liked Black Sabbath in the old days, you got to love ’13.’ It’s very heavy. It’s very, very heavy. I’m my own worst critic. Rather than the pluses I look for the minuses. And I haven’t been this excited for an album in a long, long time. I can’t remember the last time.”
