Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On His Upcoming Sophomore Solo Album: “Nobody Is Ready For What They’re About To Hear”


Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor began the recording sessions for his sophomore solo album this past week. Producer Jay Ruston (Anthrax, Stone Sour) has once again been tasked with overseeing those sessions, having also helmed Taylor‘s 2020 debut album “CMFT“.

In a video update shared yesterday (January 21st), Taylor offered of the effort:

“I’m really, really excited. I mean, everything’s just bigger this time. Everything sounds better. Everything’s running better. Everything’s running hot. Instead of where I came from, this is where I’m going. Musically, it’s harder. It’s faster, but there’s still tons of stuff from the first album. So, there’s elements of Slipknot. There’s elements of Stone Sour. There’s elements of ‘CMFT.’ There’s elements of the stuff that I’ve been doing for years. Just, like, cover-wise or whatever.

All the stuff that I’ve always wanted to do. We are just… we’re doing that. Just cranking it up and it all sounds so fucking good, that I can’t even describe to you how stoked I am to be starting on this. And today’s the day. Today’s the day. Today’s the fucking one. Let’s get going! I’m serious as a heart attack. Nobody is ready for what they’re about to hear, for real. But first, we gotta record it.”
