Clown promises Slipknot's long lost album ‘Look Outside Your Window’ & a documentary this year

It sounds like Slipknot has a bunch planned for 2024.

It sounds like Slipknot has a bunch planned for 2024. 

In a recent interview with NME, percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan revealed that Slipknot’s unreleased album ‘Look Outside Your Window’, which was recorded back in 2008 during the sessions for the ‘All Hope Is Gone’ album, will finally be released this year. 

The album’s long-lost album has been teased for years, and finally Clown promised “it’s definitely arriving next year. You have my word. The art’s been done. It’s been mixed. It’s been mastered. It is definitely coming out in 2024 and it’s such a great album,” he told NME. 

He went on to add, "Corey [Taylor] is my favourite singer ever, and you’ll never hear him sing in the same way as on this album, so it’s been worth holding it back. It’s such a different, timeless project.”

The long-lost album isn’t the only thing that’s been ticking away in the background for the band - Clown also revealed that he’s been working on a documentary to celebrate Slipknot’s 25th anniversary. 

“I’ve harvested relics from our whole career. I’ve just collected and collected all of it. Let’s call it a documentary, but really it could be a film. I’ve recently signed on with some forces for it and I’m going to get a director too,” he said. 

“A lot of the footage has already been captured, but there is a lot that still needs to be compiled for it to be what it needs to be. So yes, there’s something like that coming, and there’ll be a DVD which would be behind-the-scenes too. 

“Also footage for the 25-year anniversary, there would likely be a package for that, and there’s going to be a reissue of the album, probably.”

But wait - there’s more. Elsewhere in the interview, Clown revealed the band has been working on a new album, but there’s no set-in-stone plan for when that will be released while the band focus on their UK & Europe tour later this year. 

“As far as the new album, that’s happening, but that’s another plan," he said.

"These live dates are coming first and we’re here to have a good time. This band has never been happier, and that takes a lot because we’ve been through a lot — drugs, women, money, fame, ego, isolation. But we are on track.”
