Having been teased for a little while now, today Corey Taylor has officially confirmed details of his second solo album, CMF2.

Due out on September 15 via Decibel Cooper / BMG, the follow-up to his CMFT debut is, according to Corey, “more where we’re going”, whereas the debut was “kind of where I was coming from”.

CMF2 is previewed with lead single Beyond, of which the musician explains: “I originally wrote it as an aggressive romantic song, but I’m also looking at it now as a kind of ‘come together’ song. Bringing the masses together, and letting them know that I want my music to take them beyond what they may think about me. Maybe they’ve had a misconception about me. It’s not exactly a calling card, more like throwing the bat signal up and being, ‘Alright, let's turn everything on its head.’ It’s almost a dual threat, because now I look at it from two standpoints.”

Watch the video for Beyond below:
