TONY IOMMI Is ‘Looking Forward’ To Releasing His Upcoming Solo Album

Tony Iommi 2020

In a recent interview on Full Metal Jackie, BLACK SABBATH guitarist Tony Iommi confirmed his ongoing efforts in crafting new material for a solo album.

“I am writing stuff now for my own, for an album,” Iommi said (as transcribed as Blabbermouth). “So that’s exciting too. And there’s no pressure. I just do stuff when I feel like it, because, obviously, I’ve got a life to live and I like to do all the different stuff. But I’ve really enjoyed doing this stuff, as I did with Ozz  when I’d done a couple of tracks for his last [solo] album [Patient Number 9], which was good, to work with Ozz again. And I’m quite open for all that now. Whatever comes, and I like it, I do it.”

When asked about whether he intends to unveil a “proper album” or opt to release individual tracks sporadically, Iommi offered his response: “No, I’m gonna do a record. And I’ve got a lot of stuff. But now we’re actually getting around to sort of putting it together, myself and the engineer. So it’s been good fun, really. And as I say, there’s no pressure. I can just do it — I don’t have to do it by next week. And because of everything else [that has] been lurking around, I have to take my time in doing things. But it’s been fun. And that’s what it’s all about, really. And I’m looking forward to actually doing it and an album coming out.”

Should Tony Iommi‘s forthcoming solo album come to fruition, it would mark his third release, following the albums Iommi in 2000 and Fused in 2005.
