Ozzy Osbourne has released the animated clip for his duet with the late Motörhead frontman Lemmy.
Last month, Ozzy revealed he made a new version of his 1991 solo song with Lemmy’s vocals alongside his own as part of a tribute to the late rock star. The track appears on the expanded 30th anniversary reissue of Osbourne’s ‘No More Tears’ album, which was released on September 17th.
Lemmy, who died in 2015, co-wrote “Hellraiser” with Osbourne for “No More Tears” before his band Motörhead recorded their own version of the song in 1992.
Now Osbourne has shared an animated video that illustrates himself and Lemmy fending off an alien invasion via the power of rock ‘n’ roll.
The new version of ‘Hellraiser’ appears on the digital reissue of ‘No More Tears’ but not on the vinyl release.
Osbourne explained in a statement that the new version was made in memory of his friend. “I hope everyone enjoys the song,” Osbourne said in a press release in September. “It’s just a little way to honor my friend Lemmy. Sharon and I talk a lot about how much we miss him.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, a new biopic on Ozzy and his wife Sharon Osbourne was officially announced.
According to Variety, the still untitled film is being developed by Polygram Entertainment, a partner of Universal Music Group. Sharon is in charge of production alongside the children of the couple Aimée and Jack (via their label Osbourne Media).
Oscar nominee Lee Hall, who wrote the biopic on Elton John Rocket man (2019) and Billy Elliott (2000), writes a screenplay for the project, which will delve into the swirling life of the couple.
