SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan says that this year may finally be the time for the band to make their unreleased “Look Outside Your Window” album available to fans
In a recent talk with Upset magazine, ‘Clown‘ discussed the project, saying: “It’s an amazing body of work. You will never hear another Corey Taylor like this. The music and the words… it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life.”
The percussionist added that SLIPKNOT have held off on releasing the record so that it didn’t interfere with the band’s other releases. ‘Clown‘ also hinted that the album could finally be made available to fans when SLIPKNOT‘s contract with Roadrunner Records runs out this Spring.
“We wouldn’t want Slipknot to hurt Look Outside Your Window, and we wouldn’t want Look Outside Your Window to be a little irritation to Slipknot. Why? Because it’s beautiful God art and people deserve it.
“The good news is that six months from now, April Fool’s Day 2023, we’re off the label. There are no plans to immediately release something, and we haven’t talked about it, but I would imagine it’ll probably come very soon afterwards. There’s nothing else to do, and it’s ready to go. It’ll be worth the wait.”
“Look Outside Your Window” was recorded during SLIPKNOT‘s sessions for the 2008 LP “All Hope Is Gone“, which vocalist Corey Taylor has said features a very “experimental” vibe.
SLIPKNOT unleashed their latest album, “The End, So Far“, in 2022. The effort marks the band’s final album with longtime label Roadrunner Records.
