After more than 20 years of building a metal empire as the multi-faceted frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Corey Taylor is flying solo on a project of his own for the very first time.
As announced this week, Taylor’s inaugural solo effort, CMFT (short for “Corey Motherfucking Taylor,” in case you were wondering) will make its way into the world October 2 via Roadrunner Records. To christen the next chapter in his career, Taylor has also released the first two singles from the record, “Black Eyes Blue” and “CMFT Must Be Stopped,” with the latter finding The Great Big Mouth again collaborating with Tech N9ne, as well as London-bred hip-hop artist, Kid Bookie.
The highly-anticipated album reportedly will encompass Taylor’s wide-ranging musical taste and influence, with songs ranging from hard rock and classic rock, to punk and hip-hop. In addition to his own musical talents, Taylor has enlisted Prong bassist and longtime friend Jason Christopher, Stone Sour guitarist Christian Martucci, guitarist Zach Throne and drummer Dustin Robert to help deliver the latest batch of musical mayhem.
