Yungblud has opened up about working with Ozzy Osbourne on the video for his latest single ‘Funeral’, in which the Black Sabbath star and wife Sharon made a cameo.
The Doncaster rock star was talking to NME for this week’s Big Read cover story, ahead of the release of his self-titled third album, which will be released in September.
In between live clips, the ‘Funeral’ video featured footage of the musician – whose real name is Dominic Harrison – digging his own grave, while Osbourne watches on. During the video shoot, Harrison said he had confided in the legend about some of the hate he had received online, particularly some social media users calling him “disrespectful” for spitting beer in the crowd at his gigs.
He continued to discuss Osbourne’s current condition and the advice the metal icon had given him. “People think [Ozzy] is kind of… gone, but he’s not,” he said. “He’s so intelligent and so fucking beautiful. People are scared of him until they hear him speak. He said that he saw a lot of himself in me. He said, ‘Never apologise for anything. They will understand you later. Time always tells.’”
