KORN Frontman Teases 'What It Is' Solo Single

KORN frontman Jonathan Davis will release a new single, titled "What It Is", at the end of this month. The song, which will receive its world premiere on SiriusXM's Octane channel tomorrow, will be included on the soundtrack to a new film called "American Satan", out January 26, and head to radio four days later, on January 30. Davis has also been preparing a new solo album that is expected out this spring, although it's not clear whether "What It Is" will be on that LP as well.

A teaser for "What It Is" is available below.

Davis composed the score for "American Satan" with Nicholas O'Toole. He listed some of his favorite scores for The Pulse Of Radio a while back. "I'm really into Vangelis, what he did with 'Blade Runner'," he said. "I just like trippy scores, like what Wendy Carlos did for 'A Clockwork Orange' and just cool stuff. I really am a big fan of the movie 'Dune', I love — TOTO did that score. That was a cool score. And then there's the, you know, normal ones, the orchestral scores that are all good. Yeah, those are a few of my favorites."

In addition to releasing a new solo album in 2018, Davis also revealed that he will also tour in support of the LP. He's already scheduled to appear at several European festivals, with more shows in both Europe and North America expected.

Davis has recorded and toured on his own intermittently over the years. He has composed music for soundtracks, most notably "Queen Of The Damned", and has toured and DJed frequently over the years as his alter ego JDevil.

KORN's last album, "The Serenity Of Suffering", came out in 2016.

This August marks the 20th anniversary of KORN's 1998 breakthrough album "Follow The Leader". Guitarist Brian "Head" Welch indicated in a recent interview that the band is mulling over plans to celebrate that milestone.
