SLIPKNOT‘s percussionist, Shawn “Clown” Crahan, recently reaffirmed that the band is still planning on releasing a collection of 11 unheard songs crafted by four members during their All Hope Is Gone album sessions from 2008.
In 2018, Crahan disclosed the recording of a psychedelic-style music composed by himself, singer Corey Taylor, guitarist Jim Root and DJ Sid Wilson during an interruption in their All Hope Is Gone session.
During an interview with Upset magazine, Crahan revealed his intentions of releasing previously unheard material – titled Look Outside Your Window – in the near future.
“It’s an amazing body of work,” he said. “You will never hear another Corey Taylor like this. The music and the words… it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life.”
“We wouldn’t want SLIPKNOT to hurt Look Outside Your Window, and we wouldn’t want Look Outside Your Window to be a little irritation to SLIPKNOT. Why? Because it’s beautiful God art and people deserve it,” he continued. “The good news is that six months from now, April Fool’s Day 2023, we’re off the label. There are no plans to immediately release something, and we haven’t talked about it, but I would imagine it’ll probably come very soon afterwards. There’s nothing else to do, and it’s ready to go. It’ll be worth the wait.”
Despite the fact that one of the tracks from Look Outside Your Window, “‘Til We Die,” was featured on All Hope Is Gone‘s digipak, the rest of these songs remain inaccessible.
