Semi-autobiographical short film follows young rocker battling demons of addiction

"Under the Graveyard" — Ozzy Osbourne's first single since 2010 — made its gloomy, mortality-facing debut back in November, but now the bat-biting heavy-metal godfather has put a visual narrative to the poignant song. Set in West Hollywood in 1979, the Jonas Åkerlund–directed short film tells the semi-autobiographical tale of a young man snared in the throes of addiction and wandering the gritty Los Angeles streets. A narrator resembling a young Sharon Osbourne (actress Jessica Barden) relates a harrowing story of the time when the man — played by Val Kilmer's son Jack, who also appeared as ill-fated Mayhem vocalist Pelle "Dead" Ohlin in Åkerlund's Lords of Chaosdisappeared, and rumors swirled that he was preparing to lock himself away in a hotel to drink himself to death. Spoiler alert: Ultimately, love saves the day.

"For 'Under the Graveyard,' Jonas developed the story into a mini movie," Ozzy commented of the video. "But, to be quite honest, it's hard for me to watch because it takes me back to some of the darkest times in my life. Thankfully Sharon was there to pick me up and believe in me. It was the first time she was there to fully support me and build me back up, but it certainly wasn't the last."

"Under the Graveyard" will appear on Ozzy's upcoming 12th solo record, Ordinary Man, due out in early 2020. Also next year, the Prince of Fucking Darkness is set to make good on his previously canceled "No More Tours 2" dates, starting in late May in Atlanta, Georgia.
