Ozzy Osbourne looks set to make an appearance in the new Yungblud video.

With the Doncaster artist’s new single, ‘The Funeral’, set for release tomorrow (March 11), he took to Instagram yesterday to share a reel of himself on the set of the track’s video with the Prince of Darkness and his wife, Sharon.

Yungblud – real name Dominic Harrison – tagged the couple’s daughter, Kelly Osbourne, in the clip, which he captioned: “Bringin some mates to my funeral…” The brief video is the latest in a series of teases this week relating to ‘The Funeral’. Harrison has already shared some of the song’s lyrics: “I’ve been dancing at my funeral. But nobody came, what a shame, shame, shame…” They appear on the artwork for the single, which sees Harrison lying in an open coffin.

The first hint of the new track came last Saturday (March 5), when Harrison shared a handwritten note with fans. “To whom this may concern,” the note, which was posted to Twitter, read. “For those I let down I’m sorry, for those who let me down, fuck you but I forgive you.” It went on to conclude: “You are cordially and graciously invited to my funeral.”

It comes ahead of his hotly anticipated third full-length, which is expected this year. ‘The Funeral’ would appear to be the lead single from the record, which will follow 2020’s acclaimed ‘Weird!’. Harrison previously told Apple Music’s ALT CTRL that the album was set to contain “the most personal music I’ve ever written. And I think people are going to be a bit shocked about that because all my other music is pretty personal.”

Yungblud has confirmed that he’ll play a one-off show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on March 23, as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust’s annual run of benefit gigs. Last week (February 28), he joined a slew of other artists in axing planned concerts in Russia, in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine. In a statement posted to Twitter, he said that the military action did not “reflect the attitudes and ideals of the beautiful people who I have met in Russia in the past.”
