Slipknot Release New Song Unsainted
It’s finally here! Slipknot have released the first single from their upcoming sixth album We Are Not Your Kind.
The track, Unsainted, is available to stream now and comes with a brand new video directed by Clown himself.
“These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it’s taken the most time,” says Clown of the new album. “Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”
“This is the most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together,” adds guitarist Jim Root. “One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full-length albums – not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.”
Unsainted is the first new music from Slipknot since last year’s surprise single All Out Life, which isn’t a part of their upcoming album.
