Slipknot and Stone Sour’s legendary frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed by KaoosTV and gave away untold information about his first-ever solo album named ‘CMFT‘ that will be released on the 2nd of October via RoadRunner Records.
After working with Slipknot for 23 and Stone Sours for 18 years, Corey Taylor has decided to make his first-ever solo album unveil the main reason that motivates him to do that after all those years.
According to Corey, there were lots of unreleased songs that he’s written over the years that could fit neither Slipknot nor Stone Sours and that was the first-ever thing that pushed him to make his solo debut. Corey also admitted that the long-time desire of the fans was one of the other influencers as well.
At the end of the interview, Corey was asked about his solo-album tour plans and Corey stated that he will finish up the Slipknot tour and will do whatever he can with the rest of the year solo-wise.
Here is what he said:
“A solo album is something that I honestly hadn’t even really thought about doing until… It kept coming up in interviews and stuff – it kept coming up in interviews, the fans kept asking me about it.
So the more people kept asking me about it, the more I wondered, ‘What would this sound like? If I did a solo album, what would it sound like?’ And that’s when I kind of realized, ‘Man, I’ve got all of these songs that I’ve written over the years that don’t fit with anything that I’ve ever done.’
They were just good songs but certainly didn’t sound like Slipknot, didn’t fit with Stone Sour. And I was like, ‘This is what it would sound like.’ And I realized it’s so different than that in itself was enough for me to use those songs for a solo album.”
“Everybody knows that my musical tastes have always been all over the place. I love music, and I love good music. I’ve always said that every genre has good music on it. So when I hear something that I really dig, I’m really into it.
And I think because of that, that has really influenced me over the years, and it has not only influenced my musical styles in the writing that I’ve done, but also the songwriting that I’ve done.
The only thing I really wanted to do on this album was put the best songs forward. ‘Cause I’ve got enough material for three or four solo albums, but I wanted this first album to really have that impact, to put the best songs on there, but the best foot forward and really show something that I’ve never shown the audience before.”
