Slipknot recorded two albums in 2008 – All Hope Is Gone, which has been out for years, and Look Outdoors Your Window, which stays unreleased. Look Outdoors Your Window options vocalist Corey Taylor, guitarist Jim Root, percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan, and DJ Sid Wilson, and has been described as a large departure from the band’s usually-aggressive sound.
Look Outdoors Your Window was initially presupposed to be shock launched on Christmas Day 2019, and presently has a possible launch date of April 2023. Although if it was as much as Taylor, Look Outdoors Your Window would by no means see the sunshine of day.
In an interview with NME, Taylor causes that the expectations for Look Outdoors Your Window is simply too excessive at this level and is likely to be higher left to the creativeness. Which is strong reasoning – it would be like if Necrophagist lastly launched their new album. Irrespective of how good it’s, there will be a contingent of individuals crying “we waited this long for this?” As if the longer you wait, the music one way or the other will get extra magical.
“Look Outside Your Window is Clown‘s baby. Slipknot is Clown‘s baby. I punch a clock and then I punch out. It’s so funny, every year or two I get an email about Look Outside Your Window and how it’s coming out. I’m just as stoked as everybody else because dude, I don’t even have a copy. I have a version from 10 years ago that I don’t even think is the same mix that they’re dealing with. I don’t even fucking know the songs are going on this album, that’s how out of the loop I am.”
“I was a guest star on that album anyway, so your guess is as good as mine. It’s so fascinating that something that started as a demo has become the Holy Grail. If you only knew how that album came about and the pain it caused… I hope people dig it but I honestly hope it never gets released because there are so many expectations about it now. It’s like that Wu Tang Clan album that only whatisfuck [Martin Shkreli] has a copy of. It’s almost better to just wonder.”
In a 2019 interview with NME, Clown elaborated on the report and its launch, saying it’s going to come out when it comes out. As you will discover in Clown‘s feedback under, we have been promised Look Outdoors Your Window a number of occasions up to now and it hasn’t surfaced. So… this is hoping, proper?
“Look Outdoors Your Window is a really distinctive artwork piece by itself. So it is type of timeless, for my part. And so I strive to not fear about it an excessive amount of. It seems like I’ve waited for this lengthy for it to be proper, and it simply by no means has… Like, we had been gonna launch it approach early on this cycle, however this takes priority, and that is not presupposed to be confused.
“It is only a piece of the puzzle. It is not presupposed to be watered down or marketed, actually. It is actually a chunk of the creativeness that is lacking that individuals may actually need. So, hopefully on this cycle someplace. It was scheduled for Christmas.
“I just quit asking, because I don’t want it to interfere with this. And mainly because of what it is. It needs its own space. And we are having a good time enjoying this album, and we have no ego with that. We’re not trying to make that corporate or whatever; it’s really just beautiful art that we wanna share in the right way.
“So it’s gonna be on this album cycle at some point. And like everything we’re doing right now, it’s just gonna come out, and people won’t even know. It’ll just be this thing that happens. I’m looking forward to that, though. I think people will really enjoy it.”
