Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has signed a new record deal with BMG to release his second solo album ‘CMF2’ – the follow-up to 2020’s ‘CMFT’.

“I wanted to work with BMG because they came in super hot wanting to work with me and they’ve been keeping the fires burning for rock, punk and metal over the last few years”, Taylor tells Billboard.

The album will be released through Taylor’s own new label imprint Decibel Cooper, via which he also plans to sign other artists.

He explains: “Decibel Cooper will not only allow me to release my own music and art worldwide, but it also gives me a solid way to help bolster any rad new acts I want to put on the roster. BMG is going to help me put my money where my mouth is – giving a boost to the next generation”.

BMG’s SVP International Marketing Jason Hradil adds: “We are THRILLED to welcome Corey Taylor to the BMG family. His new album is an extension of the incredible body of work he’s assembled over his career and we can’t wait for fans around the world to hear it later this year”.

No release date has yet been announced for ‘CMF2’, but – as you possibly just noticed – BMG says that it will definitely arrive later this year. First, Taylor has US and Europe tour dates with Slipknot to get out of the way over the summer.
