According to guitarist Brian "Head" Welch in an interview with Rock Sound TV, Korn is working on much more than just new music. Welch adds that he feels Korn has to come up with more than just new tunes because the band has been around for so long, and they really want to keep fans engaged.
"We've got some big plans coming this year we're gonna announce. I've been flying all over the place and seeing the Korn guys. And we have some really exciting news coming this year. So our fans are gonna be ready to do some cool stuff with us this year.
"A lot of stuff has been going on. But, yeah, we're trying to come up with some unique things. I know a lot of people are gonna come out with new music, because you're stuck at home, and there's nothing else to do but write music, so it's pretty obvious that people are working on music. But we're coming up with a lot more cool ideas than just music.
"We're just really brainstorming about how to do something new and fresh. 'Cause we've been around so long. You've got bands like Tool and System of a Down — these other bands that go away. Even Disturbed was gone for, like five years. Breaking Benjamin was gone four years or something. Korn is always just 'go, go, go.'
"And so we're really just regrouping and trying to come up with something fresh and new for 2021 and beyond, to just make it exciting again. 'Cause we're still excited. And so we wanna make things exciting for our fans and just have a good time. So we'll be announcing something pretty soon."
Maybe we'll finally get that covers album they've been talking about for a while now this year as well. Or maybe we'll finally get what we've wanted all these years – Korn corn!
