The new Slipknot record is fast approaching. According to vocalist Corey Taylor in an interview with Lou Brutus of HardDrive Radio, he's re-recording one song that he wasn't happy with and then shipping the record off to get mixed in January. Taylor added that percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan is working on the artwork for the new album and that it should be out in early 2022.

"The goal right now — and I don't wanna talk out of turn — the goal is to get it ready for mix [in] January so we can get it out two or three months after. I have four songs that I have to sing, 'cause I'm redoing one that I wasn't happy with; I listened to it, and I was, like, 'I can do that better.' And honestly, very rarely have I ever had the opportunity to do that. So it's actually kind of rad that I'm getting a chance to go in and go, 'You know what? I can beat what I did.' But that's gonna take me five days to get that done. 'Cause I'm gonna do those four songs and then go back through and do punch-up on anything that I'm just not feeling.

"But it's gonna be very, very little 'cause I'm pretty down with everything that I've got. So once that's done, man, it's just a matter of having Joe mix it. And I know Clown's been working on the artwork. We're working on a video for… obviously for 'Chapeltown', but also probably for whatever the first single's gonna be. Yeah, it's just a matter of time before we start getting it together."

If you haven't, check out "The Chapeltown Rag" here. Taylor previously chimed in about the new material, saying the new stuff has "made me start thinking outside my own box and challenging myself." The new album will be Slipknot's final effort for Roadrunner, and the band is hoping to have it out by the end of the year.
