KORN To Release 'Greatest Hits' Collection In The Fall

KORN will fulfill their seven-album deal with Epic Records by releasing a greatest-hits collection in the fall, according to MTV.com. The album may include the band's forthcoming collaboration with rapper LIL JON, slated to be recorded next week.

With regards to what KORN's next move will be, singer Jonathan Davis told MTV.com, "We're assessing things. Basically, all our record company ever did was box and ship, and now we're at the point with the Internet where we can basically do that ourselves. I mean, we don't have that endless supply of money from the record company, but if we do it smart, we might actually be able to make some money and not rip our fans off by charging 25 bucks for a CD. [Instead, we'd charge] $7 or $8 and try to make it better for the fans, 'cause kids will go buy music if it's good and at the right price. But if they feel like they're getting ripped off, why not download it?"

Davis told MTV.com that no major band has so far created a model business plan for functioning independently, but he thinks ORGY are on the right track.

"They're doing it on their own," he said of the band, which just released an album on its own label after leaving Warner Bros. (with whom ORGY first signed via KORN's Elementree imprint, no longer affiliated with Warner). "They're getting all of [the profits from album sales], and they're out on the road right now touring. I think that's great." [Read more]
