COREY TAYLOR announces CMF2 album and European tour

releases single ‘Talk Sick’


Earlier this year, SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor signed a “global recordings agreement” with BMG to release his second solo album, “CMF2”. The follow-up to 2020’s “CMFT” is now available for pre-order and the album’s next single, ‘Talk Sick’ is now released, accompanied by a lyric video.

Watch ‘Talk Sick’ below.

“That sick guitar at the beginning, I played that through a speaker about the size of a coffee cup. It made it sound violent; you feel like you’re being stung by bees who are playing along to the Sex Pistols” zegt Taylor over het nummer.“There’s an element of spiritual regurgitation, trying to purge yourself of demons that have been clinging to you because of prior relationships, romantic or otherwise. You realize those people bring a certain asshole side out of you that you don’t necessarily want in your life. It’s about trying to lance that boil and get that sickness out of you.”

Watch the previously released “Beyond” below.

Jay Ruston (ANTHRAXSTEEL PANTHERAMON AMARTH), who produced STONE SOUR‘s 2017 “Hydrograd” LP as well as “CMFT”, returns for Taylor‘s second full-length.

“Together we have great ideas, great energy, and are quick to try everything,” Taylor says of his studio collaborator. “We’re not afraid to tell each other if it’s a good idea, or also a bad one; we have that kind of trust.”
