Korn have announced that their 14th studio album will be released next year. You can read all the details about the forthcoming record, which is titled Requiem below.
The new album, which was recently teased on a series of interactive billboards which allowed fans to see its artwork, will come out on February 4, 2022 via Loma Vista Recordings and is being previewed by its first single, “Start The Healing”, which you can check out below.
“Start The Healing” comes alongside an official video, interspersing footage of the band performing with ethereal, otherworldly visuals.
It was directed by Tim Saccenti, who said: “Our idea for this video was to mutate that aspect of the DNA of Korn, of what makes them so inspiring, their mix of raw power and transportive aesthetics and human emotion.
“I wanted to take the viewer on an emotional journey, as the song does, a visceral, cathartic death and rebirth that will hopefully help transport the listener through whatever their personal struggles are.”
Elsewhere, a new book that details every song Korn have ever written is set to be released in the UK next month. Korn: Every Album, Every Song by British author Matt Karpe promises a deep-dive into the lyrics, song compositions and stories behind each and every track ever penned by the influential US nu-metal band. It includes B-sides, standalone singles, unreleased material, and songs that have only ever previously featured on film and gaming soundtracks.
The book is set to be released in the UK on November 25 and the rest of the world on January 28, 2022.

“Let the Dark Do the Rest”
“Start the Healing”
