More than 30 years after the release of No More Tears, music fans will at last hear a new version of the album’s “Hellraiser”. The digital release of the album, due out September 17 (Sony), will include an updated interpretation of the track featuring the first-ever official version of the song with a mash-up of vocals from Ozzy and the song’s co-writer, longtime friend and colleague Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead.
“Hellraiser” originally appeared on No More Tears; Motörhead then recorded their own version and released it as a single from their 1992 March ör Die album. “Hellraiser” was one of four songs from No More Tears co-written by Ozzy with Lemmy; the others are “Mama, I’m Coming Home,” “Desire,” and “I Don’t Want to Change The World”.
“I hope everyone enjoys the song,” Ozzy says. “This is just a small way to honor my friend Lemmy. Sharon and I talk a lot about how much we miss him.”
