Slip knot has been so rewarding lately. Just a few weeks ago, they split “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)” and announced their upcoming seventh album The end, for now. Now, they’ve already unveiled another track, a slow-burner called “Yen.”
We call it a “slow-burner” because it takes a while to build, but when it does, it’s as explosive a chorus as any in their discography. Think “Killpop”. .5: The Gray Chapter, but heavier, and some real floating notes from the one and only Corey Taylor.
There has been a lot of hype from the members of ‘Knuden leading up to the release of The end, for now… until now. Taylor has boldly claimed that it is “like a heavier version” of their 2004 record Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), Shawn “Clown” Crahan have called it “God Music” and Jay Weinberg said it features “the heaviest blues song on earth.” There’s a lot to unpack in all of these statements, and besides, we know that this will be the nine’s last album with Roadrunner records.
“New music, new art and new beginnings. Get ready for the end,” the Clown teased in a press release for the album announcement.
“Yen” is the fourth song on The end, for nowafter “The Dying Song” and “The Chapeltown Rag,” respectively while album opener “Adderall” remains unheard. Pre-order/save your copy of album here now. It will be released in various formats and there are also a few different box sets for fans to choose from.
