The world of music is ever-changing, with artists releasing albums online only, teasing tracks via social media along with many more marketing tricks in this digital age.  Ozzy Osborne and Black Sabbath haven’t released a studio album in over 30 years so you’d expect these old-timers to hold a record launch at the local music store – no way – not this time – far from it.  EFTM has the details Black Sabbath fans want.

Due for release later this month “13” brings together Ozzy Osborne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler for something fans have literally been waiting decades for.

Pre-orders for the album are available online and at iTunes right now, and as always with iTunes you can click that little “play” button and sample some of the song – but as an exclusive on iTunes you can also stream the entire 53 minutes and 34 seconds right to your computer.

It’s a simple idea that should generate some cracking previews and pre-sales for the band.

Don’t get over excited, it is literally a start to finish stream – you can’t skip tracks or choose tracks – but for fans I’m not sure that’s going to be an issue.
