Crack Cocaine is de tweede single van The Morrison Project. Een project waarin Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Morrison, Steve Stevens en Tommy Clufetos hun krachten hebben gebundeld. Het is de opvolger van single Drowning en is tevens afkomstig van het album dat op 19 april uit zal komen.

Het is het eerste product waarop Ozzy weer te horen is na zijn album uit 2022.

Billy Morrison: “The music was a direct result of sitting in a room with Steve, both with de-tuned guitars, and writing what we felt was an ultimate Ozzy riff. From there, we brought Ozzy over, and we all sat around working on the lyrics, but 90 % of those came from Ozzy himself. He’s the one that suddenly stood up and sang “Like Crack Cocaine”!! We looked at each other and knew we had the title!!”

“The song is 100 % about how certain relationships can FEEL like an addiction. It’s nothing whatsoever to do with the drug! It’s a comparison. Ozzy is talking about being in that dysfunctional situation with a partner that feels so wrong, but you keep going back again and again. ‘Loving you is driving me insane. I put you down and pick you up again’ – it’s exactly like a drug addiction.”

Steve voegt daaraan toe: “First and foremost, Billy and I discussed what an Ozzy fan would really love to hear.  We really zeroed in on the ‘90s-era Ozzy, the truly heavy stuff. We cast aside any rules both musically and lyrically. It was really a great team and Billy is just such a great motivator. Obviously as a guitarist, to contribute to an Ozzy song is like a kid in a candy store. He’s played with such an amazing array of guitarists that I tried my best to honor that tradition.”

“I think the fact that Billy and I have spent the better part of 16 years working together in Billy Idol means we are almost telepathic in how we arrange guitars, etc. Billy and Ozzy have such an amazing friendship that it was easy to feel inspired and want to help them achieve any idea I could assist with. As we worked in my home studio, I tried to make the actual recording process almost invisible. Forget any technical aspects and really have some fun. To Ozzy’s credit, he was totally focused—and man the first time I heard him sing in what was essentially my living room, fucking chills ran down my spine.
