Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor spoke in a recent interview with Forbes and revealed the differences of making an album between his new solo album compared to Slipknot.
As you might already know, Corey Taylor announced his new solo album during the self-quarantine days and released the first single, named ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped,’ about a month ago. After that, he released two more singles from the album, and he will be releasing this solo album named ‘CMFT’ on October 2, 2020.
In the conversation, Corey mentioned the tension, drama, and fights that they were doing in his whole life and said that some of the people need those to create music while explaining why he is sick of it.
Corey explained that he doesn’t need to have this kind of drama to create music, and he prefers to play with the people who do love to create music because he is done with the dramas that he dealt with in most of his career.
Here is what Corey Taylor said:
“Sometimes it’s the tension that creates the creativity. But I don’t thrive on that. I don’t need that to create. Some people do. But there’s people like me who can kind of do it either way.
I prefer to feel a gung-ho, all-for-one-one-for-all kind of vibe. That’s what I love. I love being in a studio and being so stoked about something that you’re thinking, ‘People are gonna flip when they hear this.’ That’s my win. That’s my gratification.
I don’t need tension. I don’t need fights. I don’t need drama. I spent most of my life wrapped in that drama, whether I liked it or not. I’m done with it.”
“You talk about ‘We Are Not Your Kind,’ the very lyrical content of that came from living in a toxic drama for years and finally being able to extricate myself from it. So in that respect, I needed it.
And it was a good experience for me with ‘We Are Not Your Kind,’ we had a lot of fun making it… when we were around each other. But, it’s still night-and-day from the experience that I had with this solo album.”
