In a new interview with Louisville’s 91.9 WFPK radio station, SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor spoke about the lack of political lyrical themes on his upcoming debut solo album, CMFT, which arrives this Friday (Sep. 2).
“Honestly, I actually hint at it on ‘Culture Head’, and I come at it from the standpoint of being in the middle,” he said. “Obviously, I’m much more liberal than people would even realize, but I have problems on both sides. With all of the rhetoric kind of flying over my f*cking head, it’s really about looking around and going, ‘Really?’
Corey continued: “At this point in time, we need to be looking for things to f*cking bring us together — not tear us apart. But that comes from leadership. And, obviously, we’ve seen that the Cheeto can’t lead unless there is… Well, he can’t lead — period — but he’s not comfortable when there’s not a ton of drama and a sh*t-ton of chaos going on. And that’s not the way to run a country — it just isn’t.”
