Jonathan Davis recently guested on 2 Hours With Matt Pinfield, and confirmed that his new solo album will be released on May 25. However, it is worth noting that the effort still doesn’t have a title. Davis has been working on it for about ten years, but a failed record deal, and more hindered its release. Bassist Miles Mosley (Kamasi Washington, etc.) helped with the writing, and Davis’ Korn bandmate Ray Luzier handled the drumming.
Davis went on to say the album was actually barley finished:
“I just finished it last night actually. I’ve still been working on it. I’ve been working on songs being mixed, so the last song I finished last night. It’s being mixed today and it’ll be done.”
A couple of songs on the effort include “Final Days“, which he says was written in the early 2000s and has a Peter Gabriel/’Blade Runner‘ vibe, and “Basic Needs” which features tablas, Indian music influences, etc.
In other news, Davis also revealed that Korn have “been talking about a cover album for years,” and that they have already covered The Charlie Daniels Band‘s “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” and Billy Squier‘s “The Stroke“ for it. He also added:
“We got some good ones. We’ll probably do… We’re still picking ones—it’s been a work in progress for a long time. But whenever we get a little free time, we go ahead and do a couple songs. One day it’ll see the light of day.”
