Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor spoke in the interview with Terry Bezer of Knotfest, and he revealed how many songs will be for the upcoming solo album of Corey.
In the talk, Corey said that they recorded around 25 songs less than three weeks but, there will be only 13 songs in the album. Also, Corey revealed the details of the album and stated that almost half of the songs would be the acoustic versions.
Here is what Corey Taylor said:
“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.”
“We did thirteen originals. We recorded seven covers, and then we did six acoustic versions of the originals that we put together. Or it’s five. I can never keep that straight. Maybe it’s six covers and six acoustic versions — I can’t remember.
All I know is that we did an insane amount of work in two and a half weeks — something that we thought was gonna take two months — and we destroyed it. We were doing a song a day. And we got done, and we were, like, ‘Eh, okay. What are we gonna do now?’ Everything has come together so quickly that it’s crazy.”
