Slipknot’s Corey Taylor readying new solo acoustic & covers release

Author Jad - 7.2.2022

Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor is preparing to release a new solo compilation of acoustic versions of tracks from his “CMFT” album and select covers. That outing is expected to arrive on February 25th with the first single, a cover of John Caffery & The Beaver Brown Band‘s “On The Darkside“, slated to debut this coming Friday, February 11th.

Taylor himself recently spoke of the effort during an appearance on SiriusXM‘s ‘Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk‘, offering:

CMFT is putting out a B-sides album which has all the covers that we’ve done and some acoustic versions of some of the songs that are on “CMFT”… The first single will actually be February 11th, and people will be able to download that. It’s our cover of “On The Dark Side” by John Caffery & The Beaver Brown Band, which is one of the best rock tunes ever. It’s one of our favorites to play live… The “CMFT” B-sides will come out February 25th. It’ll be available everywhere. We’re really stoked on that too.”

Those hoping for a proper follow-up to his “CMFT” album are in luck too, as Taylor revealed:

“CMFT 2″ is written, it’s demoed, it’s ready to go. Plus we’re constantly writing new stuff. So we’re gonna be in a great position, next year probably, to go in and record “CMFT 2” and just be ready to kind of do that. But that’s obviously after Slipknot has kind of done its thing.”

Slipknot were most recently mixing their seventh studio album and are tentatively eyeing a spring release date for it.
