According to Billboard, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) has signed a new “global recordings agreement” with BMG. As part of the deal, the frontman will be launching a new imprint, called Decibel Cooper, for the release of his new album “CMF2.”
Taylor said the following:
“I wanted to work with BMG because they came in super hot wanting to work with me, and they’ve been keeping the fires burning for rock, punk and metal over the last few years.
Decibel Cooper will not only allow me to release my own music and art worldwide, but it also gives me a solid way to help bolster any rad new acts I want to put on the roster. BMG is going to help me put my money where my mouth is — giving a boost to the next generation.”
Jason Hradil, executive VP of New York/senior VP of international marketing, continued:
“We are thrilled to welcome Corey Taylor to the BMG family. His new album is an extension of the incredible body of work he’s assembled over his career, and we can’t wait for fans around the world to hear it later this year.”
Thomas Scherer, BMG president of repertoire and marketing, Los Angeles and New York, also commented:
“We were completely blown away after hearing Corey’s new album. His music is absolutely brilliant with the marketing skills to match. It is an honor to be the partner for such an inspiring artist and entrepreneur like Corey Taylor and amplify his vision globally.”
Taylor also added the following about his upcoming album:
“[It’s] bigger, better and harder than ‘CMFT’ in almost every way: The songs are sick, the music is gigantic, and the risks were off the charts. ‘CMFT’ was where I came from; ‘CMF2’ is where I’m going.”
