Slipknot's Corey Taylor is fessing up — he's a big ABBA fan! Taylor told the New York Times of their music, “When you put it on, I'm instantly in a good mood.”
Taylor joins Dave Grohl and several other artists this week in an overview of musicians who draw their inspiration from ABBA. The Swedish pop band will release their first new album in 40 years, called Voyage, on November 5th.
Taylor told the NYT, “Growing up in the '70s, there was such a weird amalgam of music all over the place. I had Elvis; I had Motown; I had weird disco. Through all of that, I remember hearing ABBA's music. It seemed like it was always on, and it was clearly different from everything else. It had this full-spectrum lush production that felt and sounded big. It was only four people, but those songs sounded like there were a thousand people being recorded. The math didn't add up to me.”
