Heavy metal pioneer and multi-platinum solo artist Ozzy Ozbourne is set to release Scream on June 15, according to an April 14 announcement. Osbourne will make a world tour in support of the album, with dates to be announced next week, and Scream's first single can now be streamed online.

Scream will be Ozzy Osbourne's first album in almost three years and his tenth studio album overall. It follows 2007's Black Rain, which has sold a million copies worldwide. The album's single, "Let Me Hear You Scream," called a "fist-pumping anthemic song," is streaming on AOL Music and Noisecreep as of April 15.

Other confirmed tracks on the album are "Diggin Me Down", "Let It Die", "Soul Sucker", "Fearless", "I Want It All", "Time", "Crucify," and "I Love You All."

The lead vocalist for heavy metal band Black Sabbath, Osbourne is a Grammy-winning solo artist and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. While he rose to fame in the 1980s and 1990s, he gained a new audience in 2000 when he became a star in his own reality show, The Osbournes.

The world tour in support of Scream will reportedly last 18 months; details are due out next week.
