Jonathan Davis Confirms Release Date For New Solo Album, Says Korn Covered The Charlie Daniels Band & Billy Squier For Tentative Covers Album

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.”

It looks like Korn are recording a new album. As The PRP pointed out, a recent screening/panel for “Mind Over Matter” saw James “Munky” Shaffer appearing live from the studio, and a tweet about his appearance mentioned that a new album was in the works. Furthermore, most of the band were also seen together in a recent birthday shout-out for Breaking Benjamin‘s Ben Burnley. On top of that, Cage 9 also shared a studio photo, which appears to have been taken at Jonathan Davis‘ Bakersfield, CA studio.

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch On Chuck Mosley: “We Are Losing Too Many People To The Disease Of Addiction”

Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch has shared a tribute for the late Chuck Mosley (ex-Faith No More). You can read what he had to say in the below Instagram post:

I remember living in a tiny apartment in Burbank California living with most of the guys who would later form Korn. They were in their funk rock band called LAPD. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Faith No More, and I wanted nothing to do with those bands. Little did I know that Faith No More would grow on me so much that it changed my whole outlook of what metal could sound like. I remember Fieldy waking the whole house up every single day singing the background vocals for the song "We Care A lot" by Faith No More. Every morning he would scream "whoa whoa uh oh!" Drove us all crazy but looking back now it's a funny memory. Faith No More with Chuck Mosley were a huge part of our everyday lives back then. Guys, we need to learn from all this. We are losing too many people to the disease of addiction. It's a plague that's sending the angel of death to wipe so many of our people out and it's got to stop! Please, get help with whatever you're struggling with. Initiate conversations with the Lord everyday. Religious people make prayer out to be some holier than thou thing, but all it is, is talking to God like a friend. Face-to face. Heart-to heart. RIP Chuck Mosley, I'm so grateful that you and your family came to see us a couple months ago at our show 🙏🏼
