An exclusive preview of OZZY OSBOURNE's new song 'Let Me Hear You Scream' before the song debuts on CSI:NY Wednesday, April 14th at 10pm - check it out above."We were looking for something high energy and irreverent to sell the madness of a prison riot," said executive producer and episode writer Peter M. Lenkov about Ozzy's first single off of his forthcoming album, Scream. "We immediately responded to the new Osbourne tune. The song exceeded our expectations and brought exactly the right tone to the episode."
"When I heard they were going to use 'Let Me Hear You Scream' for a prison riot scene, I thought, 'Well, now that's something I know about,'" says Ozzy, who spent time in prison in the U.K. for burglary before his 18th birthday.
In the episode, "Redemptio," a death row inmate's (guest star Harold Perrineau, "Lost") final request brings Dr. Hawkes (series regular Hill Harper) to a Pennsylvania prison and face-to-face with a tragic incident that he has kept secret for many years, just as a prison riot erupts and traps Hawkes inside. The story was written by executive producer Peter M. Lenkov, with the teleplay by Lenkov and Bill Haynes.
Scream was produced by Osbourne and Kevin Churko. The disc will be the first to feature new guitarist Gus G. (FIREWIND) and is expected to be in stores this summer.
