Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor has finally announced his debut solo album simply titled CMFT along with the LP's first two singles; “CMFT Must Be Stopped” and “Black Eyes Blue.”
CMFT which stands for “Corey Mother Fucking Taylor” will allow the energetic and 'well-connected' singer to try his hand at a whole range of music styles from rock to punk to hip-hop in his record. Ambitious you say? or simply suicide??
The single “CMFT Must Be Stopped” which features rappers Tech-N9ne and Kid Bookie shows a smug Taylor confidently belting out a catchy rap-rock track with an eyebrow-raising list of guests on the video that include Su-metal & Moametal from BABYMETAL, Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Lars Ulrich (Metallica), a whole bunch World Westling Entertainment stars and more.
Untethered to his Slipknot sound, Taylor is not shy to go power-pop and this is well represented by his second single “Black Eyes Blue.”
CMFT was recorded at the Hideout Studio in Las Vegas and is expected for release on 02 October via Roadrunner Records.
