After it was announced that Tony Iommi would make an appearance on Ozzy Osbourne's upcoming record, the Black Sabbath guitarist has now confirmed that he wrote the entirety of one of the album's tracks.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Iommi reveals he “wrote the whole track and played on it and played the solo on it”. He jests, “It's horrible, really,” before quickly clarifying that he's joking. Because he knows like we all do that any new material spawned from an Iommi/Osbourne collaboration is bound to be killer.
