Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor announced plans to record his first solo debut album.

I know I have this album that I need to make, so the 35-year-old vocalist tells Billboard.

I'm the kind of guy that if I can't get that done then it's going to hold me back from all this other stuff I want to do, the Stone Sour's founder explains in a statement. I just know I've got to make it or I can't branch out.

Commenting on recording new songs for the effort, Taylor notes, I've never let myself get painted into a corner. I've refused to accept the fact that I can't make any kind of music I want. He then adds, I think it took people a minute to understand that, but now I'm at a point where I can do anything and people will take it seriously.

The masked Iowa metal band is currently on tour until September which released its fourth album last year titled, All Hope is Gone.
