HEAR JONATHAN DAVIS’ “SPIRITUAL” NEW SOLO SONG “WHAT IT IS”-Announces Solo Tour


Korn frontman goes it alone on first single from forthcoming solo album

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has unveiled an introspective new solo track, “What It Is.” The song, which premiered on Sirius XM’s Octane channel yesterday, appears on the soundtrack to last year’s thriller American Satan, starring members of Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria (the soundtrack hits shelves today, January 26th, via Sumerian) and also serves as the first single from Davis’ forthcoming solo album, due this summer. “What It Is” comes accompanied by a new visual where Davis is a tormented prisoner in an unidentified institution complete with guards in riot gear.

Davis says that “What It Is” aims to take listeners “out of that dark place and into somewhere that’s spiritual, positive, and makes them really think. It’s just art. I’ve changed lives with Korn, but I wanted to open minds with this shit.”

The singer has been compiling ideas for the project since 2007, writing and recording much of it while on the road. “It took 10 years, and I’m so glad this project is finally out,” he says. “It is something that is very close to me and I’m excited for the world to finally hear it. This time, I’m pulling something out of the audience. I’ve bared my soul for so fucking long, I thought it’d be really cool to pull listeners in a different direction for once.”
