SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor recently had the following to say to Britain's Rock Sound magazine about his contribution to the upcoming Spider-Man soundtrack in the shape of a track called "Bother": “I've been trying to get on this soundtrack for a year! Anyone who knows me knows I am the biggest Spiderman freak of all time! I started putting the word out and said I'd do a song with someone else just to be on that soundtrack, that's how much it meant to me! I've been waiting since 1993 for this movie to come out and I had this song called 'Bother', which is me and an acoustic guitar.
“Last year I was like, 'F.ck it, I'll record it'. If nothing else it'd be just for me to have on record. So I recorded this song, sent it to my manager, he heard it and was like, 'Holy sh.t' and he took it to the girl who was putting the soundtrack together. She flipped, and so automatically I'm flying to LA to record this song and it was weird! It was the first time I've ever been in the studio doing anything by myself and on a professional level. It came out really good. This is a song I wrote seven years ago so I'm pretty happy with it!”
The Spider-Man movie is set to hit the US theaters on May 3rd, while the soundtrack itself is scheduled to be released on April 30th through Columbia Records.
