Corey Taylor : L’album solo se précise

Corey Taylor a lâché quelques infos quant à la sortie de son album solo et s’est entouré en studio de quelques noms comme Christian Martucci (Stone Sour), Zach Throne, Jason Christopher (Prong)
ou encore Dustin Schoenhofer (Walls Of Jericho).

Il explique ainsi que 98/99% de l’album a été enregistré en live en studio avec peu d’effets derrière, 25 titres ont été enregistrés dont 13 qui devraient figurer sur l’album final  :

“…We did thirteen originals. We recorded seven covers, and then we did six acoustic versions of the originals that we put together. Or [maybe] 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.”

“It’s everything I wanted it to be. There’s some Slade in there, there’s some Johnny Cash, there’s some Alice In Chains. I mean, big choruses, fun rock, just huge solos — huge solos. It’s incredible. I, actually, two years ago, started teaching myself piano just so I can record this song that I wrote for my wife, and I was able to play it and record it. And it’s really good — it’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever written.”

Quant à la « vibe » de l’album, Taylor la décrit comme « fun » :

“…The overall vibe of this album is fun — it is party. You put this on when you wanna feel good. So there are actually two songs that we’re thinking about releasing at the same time. There’s one that is the overall crusher single — really great, huge chorus, big vibe. And then there’s another one that is just as fun on the completely other end of the spectrum that people are gonna hear and they are going to lose their minds.”

“The way I’ve been looking at it is it’s like a futuristic throwback. Everything on this album is a hybrid of all these different genres that I’m really into. It’s a modern take on vibes that people have heard before, and yet I’ve taken them and kind of thrown them through this crazy filter to see what we get. Everybody who hears it is just blown away, so I’m really, really stoked.”
