COREY TAYLOR TO RELEASE ‘X-M@$’ DECEMBER 12TH

Posted on December 1, 2010

As revealed in today’s Kerrang Magazine, the inimitable COREY TAYLOR, frontman of STONE SOUR and SLIPKNOT, and sometime solo artist, is to release his first solo single, titled ‘X-M@$’ through Roadrunner Records on 12th December.

I wrote this song in my kitchen one winter, listening to people bitch about the holidays.” Corey reminisced when asked about the track, “Personally, I love the holidays, but they seem to bring on severe stress in most people. So, I wrote this in honour of crotchety, drunken bastards who don’t know the difference between a yuletide and a toolshed. Plus, I think it’s funny. I bet the UK will too. They’re some of my favourite people in the world.”

Last month, when a gap arose during the recent Stone Sour UK tour, Corey hot-footed it over to Metropolis Studios in Chiswick, West London, and tracked the tune in a single afternoon. The lyrics showcase Corey’s sense of humour and irreverence in full force, dispensing a fat dose of jocular stick-poking at those who loathe the holiday season. However, Taylor’s joviality doesn’t stop with the song words, as he even drops a sneaky ‘Hi Simon!!’ in the single’s fade-out, as a nod to Mr Cowell and his Xmas-hijacking X-Factor squad.

You’ll be able to pick up the digital single from all leading digital retailers, including i-Tunes, Amazon.co.uk and Play.com. from December 12th.
