Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor spoke in the recent interview with Raise Your Horns With Lzzy Hale and revealed that he made a solo album during the self-quarantine days secretly.
In the conversation, Corey stated that he has been thinking about releasing a solo album, and this outbreak is the perfect time to make a solo album. Also, he revealed that he had a lot of songs that couldn’t fit for either of his bands, and this is why he wanted to make a solo album.
Furthermore, Corey excited the fans by saying that they have recorded 25 songs in three weeks and proved that these songs would be wasted if he didn’t make his solo album.
Here is what Corey Taylor said:
“I secretly recorded my first solo album. I did with the band I’ve been using for my solo shows for years, and just a bunch of people that I’ve been working with forever.
So it’s Jason Christopher, Dustin Schoenhofer on drums, from Walls of Jericho and countless other things, and Zach Throne, who I’ve been jamming with for a long time, and Christian Martucci, actually, from Stone Sour.
All five of us did it. We went in and we recorded 25 songs in about two and a half weeks, and we did everything live. And it’s dope — really, really cool.”
“All the songs are things that I’ve written over the years but they didn’t really fit with either band. So it’s the stuff that I’ve just kind of been sitting on. And I realized – I just kind of turned around and I was just like, ‘Geez, I’ve got all these songs.’
And I’ve been kind of talking about doing a solo album anyway, and I was just, like, ‘This is the perfect time to do it.’
And picking those guys was the perfect combo, ’cause we all just love the same kinds of music – the same kinds of rock, the same kinds of punk, the same kinds of metal, the same kinds of everything – and we all were able to incorporate those influences into everything.”
