Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has announced that he has completed work for his debut solo record.
The new came from the man himself when he appeared as a guest on Lzzy Hale’s (Halestorm) show Raise Your Horns on We Are Hear. Aside from the usual chat in talking about films and playing live, Taylor has said that he’s been working on the solo effort in secret.
“All five of us did it. We went in and we recorded 25 songs in about two and a half weeks, and we did everything live. And it’s dope. Really, really cool.
“All the songs are things that I’ve written over the years but they didn’t really fit with either band. So it’s stuff that I’ve just kind of been sitting on. I just kind of turned around and I was just, like, ‘Jeez, I’ve got all these songs.’ And I’ve been kind of talking about doing a solo album anyway, and I was just, like, ‘This is the perfect time to do it. And picking those guys was the perfect combo, cos we all just love the same kinds of music. The same kinds of rock, the same kinds of punk, the same kinds of metal, the same kinds of everything. We all were able to incorporate those influences into everything.”
In recent news which involves the frontman, Taylor raised $150,000 for Direct Relief’s COVID-19 fund through the sale of his guitar collection.
Massive well done to the musician there and I can’t wait to get to listening to his solo effort.
