Corey Taylor is staring down an eventful 2023 with the announcement of his second solo album, which will be released on his new imprint label with BMG.

News of Taylor’s new solo LP and his imprint comes via BillboardThe outlet notes Taylor’s follow-up to 2020’s CMFT will aptly be titled CMF2. Additionally, his imprint will be called Decibel Cooper/BMG and is part of a “global recordings agreement” with BMG.

Taylor said in a statement, “I wanted to work with BMG because they came in super hot wanting to work with me, and they’ve been keeping the fires burning for rock, punk and metal over the last few years.”

He adds about his imprint, “Decibel Cooper will not only allow me to release my own music and art worldwide, but it also gives me a solid way to help bolster any rad new acts I want to put on the roster. BMG is going to help me put my money where my mouth is — giving a boost to the next generation.”

As for CMF2, Taylor’s next studio album is expected for release later this year, but an exact release date has yet to be confirmed. He said the LP is “bigger, better and harder than CMFT in almost every way: The songs are sick, the music is gigantic, and the risks were off the charts. CMFT was where I came from; CMF2 is where I’m going.”
