Corey Taylor is very pumped about working on his second solo album, which he talked about in a new video.

In a short clip shared on social media, Taylor talked about the new LP saying, “I’m really, really excited. I mean, everything’s just bigger this time, man. Everything sounds better; everything’s running better; everything’s running hot.”

He detailed, “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, just all the stuff that I’ve always wanted to do, we’re doing that.”

Taylor added, “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 released his debut solo album CMFT in October 2020. Currently, there’s no timeline for release on his sophomore solo effort. Fans may have to wait a bit for the LP, though. Slipknot has a number of festival performances booked for 2023, including Knotfest Australia in March. A complete list of upcoming Slipknot show dates can be found at Slipknot1.com.
