A new KORN song entitled “Get Up” is available for free download at the band’s official web site. The track is a collaboration with Los Angeles DJ Skrillex and is tentatively due on a new KORN EP in May.
“I heard a few of Skrillex‘s remixes and really felt there would be a good chance that he would have the right sensibility to connect us to a new hard sound and direction, but still keeping KORN guitars and our vibe,” KORN frontman Jonathan Davis told SPIN.com. “We were just thinking of trying something new, to be honest, so I had my manager reach out to the Skrillex camp. When we got into the studio the connection was instant!”
According to The Pulse Of Radio, KORN will join the ranks of other world-famous Sony Music artists when “The Essential Korn” is released on May 10. The two-disc, 29-song collection will feature classics from the band such as “Blind”, “Shoots Ladders”, “Got The Life”, “Freak On A Leash”, “Falling Away From Me”, “Here To Stay”, “Alone I Break”, “Did My Time” and many more, including the recent “Oildale (Leave Me Alone)” from the band’s latest effort, “Korn III: Remember Who You Are”.
KORN has actually not been with Sony Music for its last three albums. It signed with Sony in 1994 and issued its last record through the company, “Take A Look In The Mirror”, in 2003.
KORN is currently off the road, but will appear at Pointfest in St. Louis on May 15 and Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio on May 21 before hitting the European festival circuit.
