Clown: Slipknot's 'beautiful God art' experimental album could be released this year

'People deserve it,' the percussionist says

Slipknot only recently released their seventh studio album, The End, So Far. But now percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan has suggested that the rumored music the band has been sitting on since the sessions for 2008's All Hope Is Gone could see the light of day soon.

The experimental material, tentatively titled Look Outside Your Window, is said to comprise 11 songs and could arrive later this year, after the band' deal with their longtime label Roadrunner Records expires.

In a new interview with Upset magazine, Crahan said, "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."

"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," he continued. "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."
