SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor has released the acoustic version of his solo track “Samantha’s Gone” which can be heard below. The song is taken from Corey’s debut solo album, “CMFT”, which came out in October.
The official music video for the album version of “Samantha’s Gone” was made available in January. Joining Corey in the clip were a number of his friends, including Tom Sandoval of Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules”, actor Dean Cameron (“Summer School”, “Ski School”, “Straight Outta Compton”), STEEL PANTHER, plus actor Greg Grunberg, Ace Von Johnson, Travis Miguel and Jonah Nimoy.
About the visual, Taylor told Bravo’s “The Daily Dish”: “The video for ‘Samantha’s Gone’ served two purposes: making fun of so-called ‘indie rock’ bands and getting all my friends together to hang out and have a good time. We all went back and forth between having fun and social distancing. Watching the first ‘band’ was great, then being fired from our OWN song in favor of STEEL PANTHER was the icing on the cake.”
“CMFT” is comprised of numerous newly written tracks alongside some songs dating back to Corey’s teenage years.
Here’s those videos.
