Black Sabbath: 15 Songs Written For New Album; New Video Interview With Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler Posted

The members of Black Sabbath - guitarist Tony Iommi, singer Ozzy Osbourne and bassist Geezer Butler - are currently working on their first studio album in thirty three years and first since 1978's "Never Say Die!" with producer Rick Rubin. 

Speaking to NME in a new video interview, the band discussed the direction of the new material, the influence of Rick Rubin and their recent Download warm-up gig in Birmingham. 

Commenting on the progress of the sessions, Osbourne said: "We've written about 15 songs so far, whether they'll get on an album [I don't know]… You just keep on writing. I was trying to [work out]: where would we be now musically if we'd have stayed together? 

He added: "Next year - 2013 - is a good clue of what we'll call the album." 

Meanwhile, bassist Geezer Butler revealed how Rubin had approached the writing sessions with the band, explaining: "He sat us down, put the first album on and said 'listen to this', imagine it's 1969, you've just done that, what would you do next?"
