Update: The video for "Ordinary Man" has now arrived. Check out the reflective clip revisiting Osbourne's life in the player at the bottom of this post.

There are supergroups, and there are super damn songs. Ozzy Osbourne has just dropped a new song, the self-titled track from his upcoming album Ordinary Man, and it features legendary pianist Elton John, Guns N' Roses duo Slash and Duff McKagan and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.

Ozzy says of the new track, "It all just came together. Slash is a dear friend of mine, as is Elton. When I was writing 'Ordinary Man,' it reminded me of an old Elton song and I said to Sharon, 'I wonder if he would sing on it?' We asked and lo and behold, he agreed and sings and play piano on the song."

Smith, who is featured on the whole album along with McKagan and producer and guitarist Andrew Watt, explained how the group went about recruiting the Rocketman and Slash for the song in an episode of Sirius XM Volume's Volume West. Slash contributed a solo to the second single "Straight to Hell," but they initially wanted him for "Ordinary Man" because it's more of a melodic, Beatles-esque song.

"It's 'November Rain'-ish, but it's not. It's a good song, and [Slash] plays beautifully on it," Smith enthused. "And then we decided, 'Well it has a piano. Who's a really good piano player? I don't know'... Let's get the Rocketman!"

It gets even better — John sings a verse on the song as well.

"It's fucking awesome," the drummer teased again. "These two iconic, legendary English fucking rockers that have been through it all are singing about the end of their lives — 'I don't wanna die an ordinary man' — it's fucking great."

Check out the lyrics for the song below:

I was unprepared for fame
Then everybody knew my name
No more lonely nights it’s all for you
I have traveled many miles
I’ve seen tears and I’ve seen smiles
Just remember that it’s all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Many times I lost control
They tried to kill my rock n roll
Just remember I’m still here for you

I don’t wanna say goodbye
When I do you’ll be alright
After all I did it all for you

Don’t forget me as the colors fade
When the lights go down it’s just an empty stage
Ok
Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man

Yes I’ve been a bad guy
Been higher than the blue sky
And the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
I made momma cry
Don’t know why I’m still alive
Yes the truth is I don’t wanna die an ordinary man
