Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Reveals Details For Second Solo Album

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor began tracking his second solo album last week. Taylor is working with producer Jay Ruston, whose credits include Steel Panther and Anthrax. The album marks the follow-up to 2020’s “CMFT,” and Taylor provided an update on the record via social media. 

“I’m really, really excited. I mean, everything’s just bigger this time, man,” Taylor said in a video.

“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.”

Taylor said the album is reminiscent of all aspects of his career. 

“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, just all the stuff that I’ve always wanted to do, we’re doing that. We’re just cranking it up and it all sounds so f*cking 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 f*cking one. So, let’s get going. Serious as a heart attack, nobody’s ready for what they’re about to hear. It’s for real. But first, we’ve gotta record it.”

Taylor previously told Eddie Trunk: “I’m gonna throw together a really rad, ‘rock is back’ kind of tour for the solo stuff and start bringing out some of the younger — maybe not even some of the younger rock bands, but just some of the bands that don’t get the chance or just don’t get the looks that are afforded to either pop bands and hip-hop bands or people like me who are kind of grandfathered in.”

“So I’m gonna try and really kind of fly the rock flag and give some opportunities to some of the younger bands and maybe even just the mid-level bands that just haven’t had a shot. ‘Cause there’s so many great bands out there.”
