Black Sabbath’s brand new single has been released!!!

The first single from Black Sabbath‘s new album, 13, began streaming online Thursday (April 18th) and is expected to arrive at rock radio stations on Friday (April 19th). The song, called “God Is Dead?,” is nearly nine minutes long and begins with a soft guitar, builds into a slow, doom-laden stomp, then switches halfway through into a more uptempo riff that comes the closest to the sound of the classic early Sabbath albums.

Ozzy told us a while back that he had just one standard that a new Sabbath album had to meet: “If you don’t do an album that blows the doors off the last one that we did together, then it’s gonna be looked upon as a joke, you know.”

  • The Rick Rubin-produced 13 comes out on June 11th and is the first Sabbath album to feature Ozzy, guitarist Tony Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler together since 1978’s Never Say Die!.
  • Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine provided drum tracks in lieu of original drummer Bill Ward.
  • Sabbath will begin a world tour later this month in Australia, with North American dates coming in the summer and European gigs penciled in for the fall.
  • The band will also make a rare TV appearance to perform a new song called “End Of The Beginning” on the season finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. The episode is set to air on Wednesday, May 15th at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
