Yesterday afternoon, Taylor himself overvalued the report, too, through a brief however candy social media clip (which you’ll be able to take a look at beneath). In it, he states the next as he drives to the studio:
I am actually, actually excited. I imply, the whole lot’s larger this time. All the things sounds higher. All the things’s working higher. All the things’s working scorching. As a substitute of the place I got here from, that is the place I am going. Musically, it is tougher. It is sooner, however there’s nonetheless tons of stuff from the primary album. So, there’s parts of Slipknot. There’s parts of Stone Bitter. There’s parts of ‘CMFT.’ There’s parts of the stuff that I have been doing for years. Simply, like, cover-wise or no matter.
All of the stuff that I’ve all the time wished to do. We’re doing that. Simply cranking it up and all of it sounds so fucking good that I am unable to even describe to you ways stoked I’m to be beginning on this. At this time’s the day. At this time’s the fucking one. Let’s get going! I am critical as a heartattack. No person is prepared for what they’re about to listen to, however first, we gotta report it.
The snippet ends with Taylor closing the door behind him, revealing a handwritten signal of “CMF2” on the door.
Unsurprising, all three posts had been met with encouraging feedback from thrilled followers. Particularly, considered one of Lorango’s supporters wrote, “Riffs so powerful, you instantly sprouted a BEARD!!!” whereas considered one of Taylor’s followers declared: “I am unable to wait to listen to it, CMFT was an ideal Corey Taylor album in my eyes.

Again in August 2022, Taylor spoke with Eddie Trunk – on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation – concerning the upcoming album (which is able to as soon as once more be co-produced by Jay Ruston). As transcribed by Blabbermouth, Taylor defined:
It is about 15 songs. And it is a type of cool issues the place a few of it is older stuff that I’ve written through the years. There’s truly a few songs that among the followers know as a result of I debuted them stay once I was doing the JBKB [Corey Taylor & the Junk Beer Kidnap Band] factor. So, there is a tune like “Beyond” and a tune like “Breath Of Fresh Smoke” — each of these songs are getting recorded and launched . . . However then a bunch of newer stuff.
And there is positively a darker edge to it. It is nonetheless very melodic, however I am positively beginning to sort of carry collectively the issues that I am identified for. And it is much less an homage of the stuff that I grew up on and extra of what individuals are used to listening to from me — however nonetheless a solo album. So, there’s nonetheless nice rock and roll on it. There’s some heavier stuff, however there’s some actually nice slower stuff. It is gonna be actually rad.
In the identical interview, Taylor vowed to “throw collectively a very rad, ‘rock is again’ sort of tour for the solo stuff.” He added: “[I’ll] begin bringing out among the youthful — perhaps not even among the youthful rock bands, however simply among the bands that do not get the possibility or simply do not get the seems to be which might be afforded to both pop bands and hip-hop bands or individuals like me who’re sort of grandfathered in.”
