In an interview with USA Today, Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor talked about some of his fans’ reaction against the new sound he created in his solo album, ‘CMFT,’ and claimed he’d never acted upon other people’s opinions.
As you might know, the talented lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Corey Taylor has been focusing on his upcoming solo album for a while now. His highly-anticipated album, ‘CMFT,’ was planned to be released on October 2, 2020. A few months ago, Taylor also released the first two singles from his upcoming album, ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’ and ‘Black EyesBlue.’
Recently, Corey joined an interview with USA Today to answer the most wondered questions about his upcoming solo work. During the conversation, Taylor responded to the Slipknot fans who criticized his new sound quite harshly on social media.
As a response to the interviewer’s question wondering whether he was bothered by those complaints or he simply did not care about that anymore, Corey Taylor revealed he had never cared those kinds of comments about his music. Although he received various reactions towards his songs since the beginning of his career, Corey claimed he did not care any of them because he was making music for himself, not for others’ appreciation.
Here’s how Corey Taylor responded to the fans’ complaints about his new sound:
“I never really did, to be honest. I can remember when ‘.5’ came out, everybody was like, ‘Oh, they’ve lost it! That’s it.’ And then when ‘We Are Not Your Kind‘ came out last year, they were like, ‘This doesn’t sound anything like ‘.5′!’
The mob is almost always wrong, and maybe they should just keep their opinions to themselves. People have been putting expectations on me and us since the first album, so all you can do is make music for yourself and hope people are as into it as you are.”
