Corey Taylor‘s new solo album will be the best rock album of 2023. This phrase belongs to Slipknot‘s frontman’s latest interview for his upcoming new album release this year.
We are excited to announce that Corey Taylor, the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, is set to release his much-anticipated solo album, which he claims will be “the best rock album of this year and the next”. We will dig into the details of this upcoming album, and analyze the reasons behind Corey Taylor’s latest interview too. He just finished the recording season of the CMF2 album. Also, Corey Taylor talks that his second solo album, the forthcoming CMF2 will be “the best rock album of this year, and the next.”
He also added:
“I can’t wait for people to hear this album. It chews up that first record and spits it out. It’s more dialed-in with everything people expect from me, so it’s got hints of ‘CMFT’ but there are also hints of Slipknot, Stone Sour, and all the stuff I’ve done in my acoustic shows. It’s got everything for everybody. People are going to fucking lose it. Some fans will recognize a few from other projects that I’ve done while others were written just before we went into the studio.
I was really inspired by my band. But also the reaction that the first solo run had, where people leaned into everything. They liked the acoustic stuff, they liked the heavy stuff, they liked the fun stuff. We wanted to make a hybrid thing, but not have it feel chaotic.
It definitely emboldened me to run even further. It felt really good to know that there’s trust there from the fans. There is also ‘90s grunge, ‘70s punk and the hard-hitting shit that I helped create in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, he said. “It’s a bit of everything, but it was important for us to make it feel fresh. There is a dark, solemn acoustic song called ‘Sorry Me’ that’s got a very old school vibe to it, ‘Talk-Sick’ still has an ‘80s feel to it, but it’s more of a Guns N’ Roses vibe which was always the stuff that made you want to run through walls and the first single ‘Beyond’ is going to blow people the fuck away.
This album is definitely more of a punch in the face. The stuff that largely inspires me comes from the stuff I grew up listening to; street hip-hop, punk, metal, and all the shit that feels like it came from someplace that I can relate to and identify with.”
The album, titled “CMFT Must Be Stopped”, is scheduled for release in October 2, 2020, via Roadrunner Records. It features 13 tracks, including the previously released singles “CMFT Must Be Stopped”, “Black Eyes Blue”, and “HWY 666”. The album showcases Taylor’s versatility as a songwriter and performer, blending elements of hard rock, punk, country, and pop into a cohesive and energetic sound.
“CMFB…Sides,” a solo album by Corey Taylor featuring acoustic and cover songs, was released via Roadrunner Records in February 2022. The album also included nine unpublished B-sides, as well as live performances, covers of Taylor-inspiring songs, and acoustic versions.
Early in January 2023, at The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada, Corey Taylor started tracking the follow-up to 2020’s “CMFT” LP with veteran producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with Steel Panther and Anthrax, and others. Corey Taylor’s solo band, including members of guitarists Christian Martucci and Zach Throne, bassist Eliot Lorango, drummer Dustin Robert, and guitarists Zach Throne and Christian Martucci, joined him in the studio.
Taylor estimates that 13 of the 26 tracks that have been recorded for the album will likely be included. Corey Taylor’s new album CMF2 will release in April or May 2023.
