Jonathan Davis Discusses Korn’s New Album Title “The Nothing”

During a recent interview with Kerrang!, Jonathan Davis opened up about the title of Korn’s new album “The Nothing“ (out September 13). The singer seemed to suggest that the title was partly inspired by “The NeverEnding Story.”

Davis said the following:

“I was struggling with the thing that’s chasing me – that’s always fucking with me. I tried to give it a name and it just fit. I know it’s from ‘The NeverEnding Story‘ – The Nothing was coming to destroy the fairytale land with ‘Atreyu‘. I love that movie, but it was somewhere in-between.

The Nothing’s not necessarily evil evil – it’s a mixture, and I’m all about balance. In my house I’ve got crosses of Jesus everywhere and Baphomets everywhere – I’m in the middle, I’m Switzerland. I always thought there are two things I know for sure in the universe – there’s a positive and a negative.

I tend to be intrigued more by the dark side – I’ve collected a lot of dark things, seen some crazy shit – but when all that shit went down with Deven and my son, it seemed like the powers that be were keeping me from making the record.

I sound crazy when I talk about it, but one thing after another would happen – my mics would break, stuff at the studio would break, things would happen at home… Whatever it was, it was keeping me from doing what I was doing. It’s always been the case with me.”

Jonathan Davis (Korn) Premieres “Basic Needs” Music Video

Korn‘s Jonathan Davis has premiered a new video for his song “Basic Needs.” This track is from his solo album “Black Labyrinth.” Davis commented:

“Basic Needs is essentially as close as I get to writing a love song. It also gave me a chance to explore different instruments and styles of world music, and step outside of what may be considered ‘the norm.’ The two other videos I’ve released for this record have been telling a story in reverse. This video continues that pattern.”
