Black Sabbath: Mixing New Album In February, Says Geezer Butler In New Video Interview

Eddie Trunk conducted an interview with bassistGeezer Butler for Hartke at this year's NAMM. You can now watch the chat below. A few excerpts from the chat follow.

On the new Black Sabbath album:

Geezer: "We've finished recording it. Tony's back in England putting down a couple of solos. Then we start mixing it in Febraury and it will be out in June.

"The provisional title is '13' - unless we can come up with something more constructive."

On Black Sabbath's touring plans:

Geezer: "We start at the end of April in New Zealand, then we go to Australia, then Japan. June, we'll be promoting the album, then July and August [is] USA. Then October is South America and Europe in November and December."

On how it feels to be back working with Ozzy Osbourne again:

Geezer: "It's great. We just have a lot of laughs and lot of fun."

On whether he has contributed lyrics to the new album, like he has in the past:

Geezer: "Yeah, I've written most of the lyrics. Ozzy comes up with the titles and then gives me an inspiration to write the lyrics. I think we've got 16 songs and I've written 14 sets of lyrics."

On his plans to release another solo album:

Geezer: "When I finish this cycle for the Sabbath touring and album and everything else, we'll start work on the next GZR album. There's a lot of material written. It's just getting the time to record it. It'll probably be sometime next year."
