Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Will Soon Release Two Songs From His Solo Album

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has confirmed that he will soon be releasing two songs from his long-awaited solo record, which he has recently completed during his downtime in quarantine. During his recent interview on Knotfest’s YouTube show, Mosh Talks, Taylor told host Terry “Beez” Bezer about the record, which will also feature Christian Martucci (Stone Sour) and Zach Throne on guitars, Jason Christopher on bass and Dustin Schoenhofer on drums.

“Actually, there’s two — there’s two songs that we’re gonna release first,” he says. “The overall vibe of this album is fun — it is party. You put this on when you wanna feel good. So there are actually two songs that we’re thinking about releasing at the same time. There’s one that is the overall crusher single — really great, huge chorus, big vibe. And then there’s another one that is just as fun on the completely other end of the spectrum that people are gonna hear and they are going to lose their minds.

He continues, “The way I’ve been looking at it is it’s like a futuristic throwback. Everything on this album is a hybrid of all these different genres that I’m really into. It’s a modern take on vibes that people have heard before, and yet I’ve taken them and kind of thrown them through this crazy filter to see what we get. Everybody who hears it is just blown away, so I’m really, really stoked.”
