New KORN Song Streaming Online [VIDEO]
California quartet Korn have been around for almost two decades now, and their tenth studio album, The Path of Totality, is set to release on December 6. However, the band are giving their fans a sneak peek of their newest work, as their song “Sanctuary” is now streaming on YouTube.
According to the article, the album will be experimental and different, but with a classic Korn twist:
For “The Path Of Totality”, the band collaborated with some of the leading dubstep and electronic producers in the world, including Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Noisia, Kill the Noise, and 12th Planet. The result is something completely new, yet utterly and definitively KORN. Leave it to a band like KORN to continue to reinvent itself two decades deep into its career.
The title ‘The Path Of Totality’ refers to the fact that in order to see the sun in a full solar eclipse, you must be in the exact right place in the exact right time, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis explained. That’s how this album came together. I think all the producers feel the same way. I’m not sure it could ever happen again
The band’s recent (and much lauded) collaboration with dubstep’s hottest producer, Skrillex, titled “Get Up!”, was the surprise rock hit of the summer, the buzz of which started in Coachella’s dance tent in April 2011, when Jonathan and Munky joined Skrillex on stage for a show stealing unannounced performance of the song.
Adds James “Munky” Shaffer, ‘Get Up!’ started as a bit of an experiment, but we had such an amazing response from our fans and had such a great time collaborating that a full album of tracks came together in a couple of months. We couldn’t wait to get to the studio every day to finish the next song.
Here is the video for “Sanctuary:”
The album will be released in two configurations: as a standard 11-song CD and a special edition CD that will include bonus tracks as well as a DVD of “The Encounter”, a full-length video concert of KORN’s mind-blowing, once-in-a-lifetime performance in the middle of a 900-foot-long crop circle in a wheat field in Bakersfield. The complete concert, previously seen last year on TV and online in an abbreviated form, will be offered in its entirety to those who purchase the deluxe version.
