Slipknot is expecting to unveil the long-awaited side-project album, Look Outside Your Window in 2024. The album came to be during recording sessions for the band’s 2008 release All Hope Is Gone. During the sessions, key members of the band; vocalist, Corey Taylor, percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, guitarist Jim Root, & turntablist Sid Wilson, went out and created the shelved record on their own.
Those who took part in the creation of the album compare it to more of a Radiohead vibe rather than the band’s usual aggressive sound. While speaking with NME, Taylor was asked about the status of the album, in which he responded:
“… I was talking to Clown about it the other day and he goes, ‘One of the reasons it hasn’t come out is because you keep putting shit out which keeps conflicting with when I want to release it!’ I was like, ‘Fuck dude, why didn’t you tell me?’ He says, ‘Fuck, Taylor – you just got too much shit!’ It’s sounding like he’s got a release date that he can finally lock in and I have promised him that I won’t release anything that will ruin that. I think it’s going to be next year – finally, man!
I just went back and listened to all that stuff and it’s so dope and so different. People going into this thinking it sounds like ‘Slipknot’ are so wrong. It doesn’t sound like anything Slipknot have ever done, that’s why it’s its own thing. To me, it really is the long-lost album. The music is so beautiful, it probably has some of my favorite melodies that I’ve done, and people are really going to dig it. Clown did a really good job.”
