Korn Announces Expanded Re-Release Of The Paradigm Shift Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.17.2014
With live material and new songs...
In an interview with Billboard, Jonathan Davis said that Korn will re-release their album The Paradigm Shift on this summer. The album will include live material and new songs, including the latest single "Hater", which hits the radio on June 19 before going on sale on June 23. The song was recorded in Bakersfield, California with producer Don Gilmore.
On "Hater": "Everyone has someone who hates on you 'cause you have something they want. It's really, like, the first empowering song I've ever written. The lyrics are: 'You can't bring me down/I've already had my life turned upside down/I ride a downward spiral round and round/But I keep flying, I keep fighting/Don't ever bring me down.' That's like the most positive shit I've ever written. And everyone who's heard it loves it, and I think it's going to give people who get down on people picking on them and hating them, like, 'Fuck this! I don't give a fuck what you think. I don't give a fuck what you say. You just fuckin' are a hater.' I think people will relate with that."
On his side EDM project Killbot: "It's like a digital metal record, but when I start singing the stuff there's some heavy rock-dub shit going on, and I got a straight pop tune. It's all over the place. It's really cool and I'm working on this week to get it done before we go on tour. I've got six songs more to do. It's some different shit that you've never heard before. It's really cool."
On the band's future: "I think we're shifting to the future. We're just really in a good place, creatively. Making ['The Paradigm Shift'] was really fun. We're all in a great place, and doing the shows has just been incredible. So I would like to get back in the studio and start working on a new record as soon as we can."
