Slipknot co-founder and percussionist, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan was recently interviewed by the official YouTube channel of Knotfest’s ‘Mosh Talks’ this week and revealed the reason why Slipknot is still not releasing their highly-anticipated album ‘Look Outside Your Window.’
As you may already know, Slipknot’s upcoming album named ‘Look Outside Your Window’ was meant to feature eleven never-released-before tracks from the unreleased materials from the band’s fourth studio album named ‘All Hope Is Gone.’ While the album was scheduled to be released in 2021, it was postponed to 2021 due to a coronavirus outbreak.
Despite the band released a single song from the album named ‘Til We Die’ as a bonus track of All Hope Is Gone, the fans are still eagerly waiting for the whole album to be released. In his latest interview, Clown was asked why Slipknot is still waiting to release the album. According to Shawn, the album will be released whenever it’s created correctly.
Here is the statement of Clown:
“The reason why we never can commit to a date or anything is because — don’t make it confusing. Don’t make it something it’s not. Don’t call it something it’s not. Accept it. It’s music. It’s art. It doesn’t carry the Slipknot name.
Joey wasn’t up the hill playing drums. He doesn’t know anything about the songs. I think he’s only been to the house once or twice. It’s a completely different project. It was never held to piss people off. It was never held to prove a point.”
“It’s been mixed. It’s been mastered. It’s ready to go. We wanna put it out. But it’s only gonna be put out when the priority is created correctly. It’s up to everyone to sort of shut their mouths and not make it confusing.
Don’t let it affect Slipknot. That’s the priority Slipknot, Slipknot, Slipknot, Slipknot. Everything else is just beautiful things that branch off of it. Everyone, quit confusing it. Accept it. We are an anomaly. We’re too much. We’re everything and anything at the same time and no time at all.”
