Corey Taylor confirms that new Slipknot music and album will be arriving soon

Corey Taylor has confirmed that a new Slipknot album in the works and will be releasing its first single ​“in the next month or so.” Back in August, Taylor revealed that he had just three songs left to record for Slipknot’s upcoming new album.  Now speaking on The Eddie Trunk Podcast, Taylor said that Slipknot’s new album is almost done and that the first single will be coming soon.

Taylor said: “It’s pretty much done. I’d say it’s probably about 80 per cent done. We’re finishing up some music [and] I’ve got a couple more songs to sing. However, I will say this: don’t be surprised if in the next month or so you hear something new.” Taylor also gave some hints about what the album’s lead single might sound like, suggesting that it is “more of a ​‘let’s bludgeon everybody and remind them why we’re still Slipknot’ kind of vibe”.

As part of this year’s GalaxyCon, Taylor also discussed the status of the follow-up to 2019’s ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, which has a tentative 2022 release, sharing, “I was actually supposed to finish my vocals this week. I got screwed, man, [by the COVID diagnosis]. I actually only have really three songs left to do. I’ve done all the other tracks because I’ve been doing ’em in between tours, just f*cking hitting it.”
