"Hearts That Race", the new Blunt Headed-directed video from SLIPKNOT DJ Sid Wilson, can be viewed below. The song comes off Wilson's solo album, simply entitled "Sid", which was mixed by Ross Robinson (KORN, SLIPKNOT), and Tobias Lindell (EUROPE, MUSTASCH) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (CEE-LO GREEN, DRAKE, RIHANNA). Due mid-January, the CD marks Wilson's first attempt at lead vocals and sees him departing from his usual role as a DJ in both SLIPKNOT and as DJ Starscream.In a recent interview with Billboard.com, Wilson described the disc as "an eclectic mix of all the different styles of music I grew up listening to. There's a strong B-Boy influence in my music, 'cause I'm a DJ. I used to listen to a lot of SKINNY PUPPY and more mainstream things that came out of industrial, like NINE INCH NAILS. I was always influenced by the BEASTIE BOYS a lot and RUN-DMC and the way they mixed their rock influences in their hip-hop stuff." Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include the planned first single, "Nervous Central", and "Flat Lace", which Wilson wrote five years ago for SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray, who died of an accidental drug overdose on May 24, 2010.
"It's just about the different struggles in his life," Wilson told Billboard.com, "and it was just my way of letting him know that I was always there for him and that I was aware of the things he had to deal with. It's definitely difficult (to sing). It's hard for me to even talk about it." Wilson's solo group also features guitarist 9 Ballz, drummer Big Mike, DJ "A-Roc Impossible" and back-up vocalist, Omaha rapper Jamazz.
