Corey Taylor Shares Acoustic Version Of ‘Black Eyes Blue’

Corey Taylor has dropped an acoustic version of “Black Eyes Blue,” a track from CMFT.

CMFT, the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman’s debut solo album, dropped on October 2 via Roadrunner Records. The original “Black Eyes Blue” currently sits at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs chart.

The unplugged performance brings out Taylor’s vocals and the song’s lyrics.

Taylor decided to work on a solo album when the Covid-19 pandemic forced Slipknot to cancel their tours.

Taylore explained to Kerrang, “I put the word out, probably about a month before we actually ended up going in [to the studio], because it just started as a conversation with my manager.”

“I said, ‘Well, maybe I should just do the album now.’ And he knew how good the songs were, and he was like, ‘You know what? There’s nothing else going on. Let’s just see if we can even do it,'” he added.
