He said: “It’s pretty much done. I’d say it’s probably about 80 per cent done. We’re finishing up some music [and] I’ve got a couple more songs to sing.”
“However, I will say this: don’t be surprised if in the next month or so you hear something new.”
Taylor also gave some hints about what the album’s lead single might sound like. He said it’s “more of a ‘let’s bludgeon everybody and remind them why we’re still Slipknot’ kind of vibe”.

“I was actually supposed to finish my vocals this week,” Taylor said. “I got screwed, man, [by the COVID diagnosis]. I actually only have really three songs left to do.
“I’ve done all the other tracks because I’ve been doing ’em in between tours, just fucking hitting it.”
Slipknot will hit the road in Europe next year for a series of tour dates.
