LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Kelly Osbourne has signed a multi-album recording contract with Sanctuary Records Group.

The label will on Sept. 30 re-release her 2002 Epic debut "Shut Up" under the name "Changes," featuring a duet with her father, Ozzy Osbourne, on the title track. The repackaged album will also contain four bonus live cuts.

The title track is a reworking of the Black Sabbath song of the same name, which appeared on the group's 1972 album, "Black Sabbath, Vol. 4" (Warner Bros.). "Changes" will be released as single, and will contain new lyrics written by Ozzy and Kelly, according to Sanctuary.

Kelly split from Sony shortly after the release of "Shut Up," which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart and has sold 155,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Earlier this year, manager/family matriarch Sharon said Ozzy was in talks to leave Epic. A representative for the Osbournes had no comment on Ozzy's label status.
