Overview:
Down to Earth is the eighth studio album by English heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne. Released on 16 October 2001, the album reached number 19 on the UK Albums Chart and number four on the US Billboard 200 albums chart. Down to Earth spawned just two singles, although both reached the top-ten of the US Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and reached number 18 on the UK Singles Chart. The album was certified Platinum and has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide.[citation needed]

Down to Earth is Osbourne's only album to feature bassist Robert Trujillo, who left the group to join Metallica in late 2001. It was the first Osbourne album to feature drummer Mike Bordin, previously of Faith No More. Though he plays on the album, guitarist Zakk Wylde did not contribute as a songwriter for the first time since joining Osbourne's band in 1988 and this was due to many of the songs being written before Wylde rejoined the band. Osbourne's previous guitarist Joe Holmes was involved in the writing process and also Osbourne instead chose to utilize outside songwriters such as Tim Palmer and Marti Frederiksen.
