Corey Taylor made a name for himself as a member of Slipknot and Stone Sour, but he’s ready to spread his wings and drop his first solo album. It seems like he’s on a great path so far, and he’s already written dozens of songs for this record.

Taylor recently discussed his solo project with What Culture and admitted he developed 26 brand-new songs, and he’s not even close to being done. The Stone Sour frontman enjoyed building the momentum for a potential solo run, and has a clear vision for this project.

“It’s definitely going to be rock-based, but it’s going to be rock meets so many different things. There will be harder-edged stuff, but there also will be big, expansive, huge, world-changing guitar songs that you’re going to want to sing along to,” Corey Taylor told What Culture.

The release date of this record is still not in sight, and Taylor’s schedule will be pretty packed for some time. He’s currently touring with Slipknot, supporting their latest album We Are Not Your Kind, in addition to getting ready to release new live album with Stone Sour on December 13th.
