Taken from Korn's forthcoming album 'The Serenity of Suffering'
The new song is taken from the Californian nu-metallers’ forthcoming twelfth studio album, ‘The Serenity of Suffering’, which is released on October 21. It will be their first full-length release since 2013’s ‘The Paradigm Shift’.
The new single, ‘A Different World’, sees Taylor share vocal duties with Korn frontman Jonathan Davis. Hear it below, via Blabbermouth.
Speaking about the new song – the third track to be shared from ‘The Serenity of Suffering’ – Davis said that he encouraged Taylor “to do what you do” when recording his vocal part.
“We were trying to figure out who we wanted to collaborate with, and I’m like, ‘You know, that’s the one, that’s the guy,'” Davis said. “And I texted him, I’m like, ‘Do you want to be on a new KORN track?’ He’s all, ‘Hell yeah! When and where, what do I do?’ So he did great on the song. I already did my parts, I’m like, ‘Do what you do, man.’ And I like the way he did it, the approach: he starts creeping in underneath the song, you can start slowly hearing his voice under mine, and it crescendos up into the middle part where he sings, and then it’s just full-on at the end, so the song came out great.”
Taylor, meanwhile, said that the upcoming album is “a great throwback” to earlier Korn material.
“This whole [new KORN] album, and I’m gonna brag now, because I’ve heard eleven songs of this, it is such a great throwback to the first three KORN albums and mixed with that maturity that they have now. Like, it’s, really, really heavy. People are gonna lose their minds. It’s that good.”
