His first solo album isn’t out yet but Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor already talked about his next projects, saying he has enough material for three or four more albums.

Taylor was interviewed by Kaaos TV about his future musical direction and said that “everybody knows my musical tastes have always been all over the place. I love music—and I love good music. I’ve always said that every genre has good music in it. So when I hear something that I really dig, I’m really into it.”

According to Taylor, his broad musical taste influenced both his musical styles and his songwriting. “The only thing I really wanted to do on this album was put the best songs forward because I’ve got enough material for three or four solo albums. But I wanted this first album to really have that impact, to really put the best songs on there, put the best foot forward and show something that I’ve never shown the audience before.”

He was also asked whether he is planning to support the new album CMFT with live shows. He said that he will finish Slipknot’s rescheduled touring and probably work on his second solo album. “Once everything starts to fire back up, it’s probably going to be another year of touring with Slipknot, just to cover our bases and make sure we get around the world and get to the fans,” Taylor said. “Then,” he continued, “I’ll tour two albums instead of just one.”

CMFT is set to be released on October 2nd.
