Last week we reported that Slipknot and Stone Sours Corey Taylor is planning to release his debut solo album in 2021. And now The Great Big Mouth has been teasing and hinting what his first-ever solo release will sound like.

In short: everything.

Speaking on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation, Corey says: I’m going to dabble in a little bit of everything. It’ll have everything that I’m known for and more, let’s put it that way.”

Referring to his shows earlier this year under the guise of Corey Taylor & Friends, he says that fans are always surprised by the songs I pull out of my ass to play”, which have previously included Poison’s Nothing But A Good Time and It’s So Easy by Guns N’ Roses.

That’s kind of what this album will be – me writing all of the styles that maybe I haven’t got to do with Slipknot and Stone Sour and just going for it,” he adds. Just rolling the dice and being, like, You know what? I’m going to put my money where my mouth is and just see what happens.’ ”
