COREY TAYLOR Speaks Out on Debut Solo Album and Roadrunner Records
Corey Taylor, lead vocalist of the popular heavy metal band Slipknot, released his debut solo album, “CMFT”, in 2020. The album, which showcased Taylor’s versatility as an artist by incorporating various genres such as country and classic rock, was released under Roadrunner Records.
In a recent interview with Blabbermouth.net, Taylor expressed his frustration with Roadrunner Records for their lack of support for his solo album. He claimed that the label “didn’t push” his album and “didn’t care” about it.
According to Taylor, he had to do most of the promotion for “CMFT” himself, including creating the album’s music videos and organizing live performances. He stated that he felt like he was doing “the label’s work for them”.
Roadrunner Records’ Response
So far, Roadrunner Records has not responded to Taylor’s comments. However, it’s worth noting that the label has had a long and successful history of working with Slipknot. The band has released all of their studio albums under Roadrunner Records, and the label has played a significant role in their success.
Despite his frustration with Roadrunner Records, Taylor has already announced his plans for a second solo album. He signed a global deal with BMG in 2022 for the release of his upcoming album.
It’s clear that Taylor had high expectations for the promotion of “CMFT”, and he has been disappointed with Roadrunner Records’ lack of support. However, it’s important to note that the relationship between Taylor and the label has been positive in the past, and it’s possible that they may work together again in the future. For now, fans can look forward to Taylor’s next solo album under his new deal with BMG.
