Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor shared news about the future of his solo project, saying that his upcoming second album “sounds better” than previous releases.
The vocalist discussed the project — the sequel to the debut album “CMFT” in 2020 — in a video posted on social networks on Sunday (January 22). Taylor said that the album contains “elements” of “CMFT”, Slipknot and Stone Sour, and admitted that he is “very, very excited” about the material. He continued: “This time it’s more. Everything sounds better. Everything is going better… Instead of where I came from, I’m going there.”
Taylor revealed that the record will include “everything I’ve always wanted to do” before publishing the final teaser for the as-yet-unnamed project. “No one is ready for what they are about to hear,” he said. “I’m as serious as a heart attack.”

The release date of the album has not been disclosed, but recently bassist Eliot Lorango confirmed that the recording process has begun. Last week, Lorango accompanied a series of Instagram posts with the caption: “Day [first] in the studio with [Corey Taylor] and the guys.” In an additional post, Lorango teased that an eight-string bass guitar “may appear on this album.”

Last September, Taylor teased his second solo album in an interview with SiriusXM, saying it would be “darker” than “CMFT.” “There’s still some great rock and roll on it,” he said. “There are some heavier things, but there are also really great slower things. It’s going to be really cool.”
Slipknot’s latest album “The End, So Far” was released last September and received four stars in a review from NME. Earlier this month, band member Sean “The Clown” Crahan announced that a sequel to “The End, So Far” — the once-lost album “Look Outside Your Window” — could be released sometime this year.
In a four-star review, NME described “CMFT” as “the funniest record the Slipknot frontman has ever released,” praising it for “transitioning from rock to country and hip-hop.”
