COREY TAYLOR Teases First Music Video For Upcoming Solo Album

Corey Taylor has posted the first behind-the-scenes teaser from the making of his new solo video. It will be the lead single and video from the SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman’s upcoming debut solo album, tentatively due in September. Taylor recorded the effort with his solo band consisting of Jason Christopher on bass, Dustin Schoenhofer on drums, and Zach Throne and Christian Martucci (STONE SOUR) on guitar.

Watch the teaser below.

Taylor told Terry “Beez” Bezer of Knotfest.com’s “Mosh Talks With Beez” about the LP: “It was something I was planning to do anyway next year when I got off the road with SLIPKNOT, and, obviously, best-laid plans were just done and done because of the coronavirus pandemic. But I figured if this was the time to do it, why not try and do it. Me and my band quarantined. We social distanced for about two weeks, including our producer, Jay Ruston, who I worked with, and the people at the studio that I recorded at, which was Kevin Churko’s Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas.

This was stuff that we had been working on for a while,” he continued. “This was stuff that I had written as recently as the last SLIPKNOT tour and as far back as… There’s a song on here that dates back to when I was in high school, so that tells you how long I’ve been sitting on a lot of this material. And it’s just stuff that I’ve kind of had floating around that didn’t really fit with either band. It just had different energy and a different vibe.

The more people asked me if I was ever gonna do a solo thing, I started going, ‘Well, I kind of know what it would sound like, because I’ve got all these songs that really don’t have a home anywhere else.’ And lo and behold, boom.

“We went in, we recorded 98 to 99 percent of the music live in the studio. The only thing we overdubbed was vocals and piano and some acoustic. And we did 25 songs in two and a half weeks.
