Ozzy Osbourne has opened up about the songs on his upcoming album Patient Number 9, saying that some may be controversial. He told Classic Rock Magazine that on his song “One of Those Days,” he sings “One of those days that I don’t believe in Jesus.” He told the magazine, “That’s going to cause sh*t, I suppose. It’s not an ‘I am an anti-Christ song. It’s about those days when everything goes f*cking wrong, and you’re going nuts trying to fix everything up.”
Osbourne revealed that when Eric Clapton, who plays guitar on the track, first heard the line, he was apprehensive. “He said, ‘Oh, I’m not sure about that lyric.’ So we tried to replace it with some alternatives. We did ‘One of those days where I don’t believe in Christmas,’ but it didn’t sound right. Losing faith in Jesus makes much more sense when the world is turning to sh*t.”
Patient Number 9 Is Due Out On September 9th.
