Korn will release their new record Requiem on February 4. In an interview with Carlota of Audacy Check In, Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis said recording the new album was "one of the best album experiences I've had." Davis also mentioned that the COVID pandemic gave the band the luxury of time, which allowed them to really explore a new sound.
"It's different. We're always constantly evolving. There's still our core sound there. But this time we did this, we had the luxury, we were on a forced timeout; we had all the time in the world.
"Every single Korn record I've ever done, the band gets all the time in the world to get their stuff done, and the way I write and do my thing, I have to have the music all done and then I can do what I do. And they always book some tour, and it's coming up, and I'm always hurrying and rushing to try and get it done. So this time, we had time. We came together. We'd do it in blocks — a week block, and write a week, and then be off. [We'd do that] once a month. I think we did three or four sessions and got the record recorded. It took me four or five months to do vocals.
"But overall, we're really, really proud of it. We produced it with Chris Collier, who's really good. And it was one of the best album experiences I've had."
