Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum singer-songwriter, actor and New York Times best-selling author Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) will be releasing his second solo album titled “CMFT” on September 15th via his own label imprint, Decibel Cooper Recordings.

“CMF2” follows up Taylor’s 2020 solo debut “CMFT”, which featured the No. 1 Billboard mainstream rock single “Black Eyes Blue” and streaming sensation “CMFT Must Be Stopped” (feat. Tech N9ne and Kid Bookie). The LP hit No. 6 on Billboard’s U.S. Top Rock Albums chart.

My first solo album was kind of where I was coming from. This album is more where we’re going,” Taylor adds. “CMF2” — where Taylor sings and plays lead and rhythm guitar, piano, and mandolin — packs the energy, experimentation, and forthrightness that’s defined a career which has seen him sell more than 12 million albums with his Grammy-winning band Slipknot and several million with chart-toppers Stone Sour.

Taylor is currently touring Europe with Slipknot and Chaoszine had the chance to sat down with Taylor before the band’s sold-out show at Copenhell festival in Copenhagen, Denmark on June 16th to discuss about the current Slipknot tour with line-up changes, upcoming “CMFT2” solo album and how does the year 2024 look for the mighty Knot and Taylor himself.
