Corey Taylor discusses how the song came about…
Corey Taylor has revealed details on his collaboration with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Taylor, who is working on a new Stone Sour album, initially announced the collaborative song in February on Twitter, revealing that it would be part of Grohl's documentary about the famous Sound City Studios where Nirvana's Nevermind' and Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, among others, were recorded.
Taylor spoke with 98 KUPD, which you can see below, about the song. "[Grohl] sent an email to me, basically explaining this huge project he was doing – the documentary around the infamous board that he got from Sound City, which so many people have recorded on – myself included – we did 'Iowa' on that board," he said. "He bought it, and I loved the idea that he was like 'how many album have been made on this board?" He wrote the song, he sent me a demo of it and I was like 'this is fantastic' and I just basically wrote the first thing that came off the top of my head. He didn't even hear it until I went down there to record it." And I laid it down and he was just like "wow". Because we did it old school – two inch tape, take after take after take. He loves the analogue sound. And with that board, man. It just sings, it was really, really cool."
