During a recent interview with Des Moines radio station Lazer 103.3, Corey Taylor revealed Slipknot is currently working on their next album.
“We’ve got a bunch of really cool stuff, man,” he told them. “It was something that we just kind of started kicking around, obviously, in quarantine. And Clown hit me up, he was, like, ‘Hey, we’re gonna start working on some music. Are you down?’ I was, like, ‘Absolutely. Start sending me some stuff, and we’ll start figuring it out.’
“So they started putting together some rad music, man – really cool stuff that made me start thinking outside my own box and challenging myself,” he continues. “And it was cool, ’cause I got excited again about exploring some different stuff and not just being so driven in my own thing, but thinking outside, trying to tell other people’s stories again. And that’s kind of where I’m going with this new Slipknot album – trying to tell other people’s stories and not just my own. And it’s feeling pretty rad, man. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
