It's the Friday before Thanksgiving, so if that means you'll be seeing your parents soon, here's three artists with new songs out today that the whole family can discuss: Paul McCartney, Ozzy Osbourne, and U2.
Paul put out two songs from an upcoming Record Store Day Black Friday single that he recorded during the sessions for last year's Egypt Station. "Home Tonight" is a jangly acoustic song, and "In A Hurry" is the kind of Beach Boys-inspired baroque/psych pop that -- save for Paul's more grizzled vocals -- sounds like something he might've written in 1967.
Ozzy has shared "Straight To Hell" from his upcoming album Ordinary Man. Like the rest of the album, it was recorded with producer/guitarist Andrew Watt (who co-produced the Ozzy's recent Post Malone collab), Guns N’ Roses‘ Duff McKagan on bass, and Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith on drums, and this one has even more star power from Duff's GNR bandmate Slash on guitar. It's got a few clear nods to Ozzy's days in Black Sabbath -- hear it for yourself below. Catch Ozzy on tour in 2020 (North America with Marilyn Manson, Europe with Judas Priest). He's also set to perform with Post Malone at the American Music Awards this Sunday, and he warmed up for that by playing with Posty in LA last night (11/21). Watch video of that below the stream of the new song.
Lastly, U2's first new song in two years is "Ahimsa," which was recorded with Indian musician A.R. Rahman and translates to "do no harm." It's exactly the kind of soaring, stadium-ready song you'd expect from U2 at this point and you can listen right here:
