Jonathan Davis Drops 'Basic Needs'


Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has released the song "Basic Needs" from his upcoming debut solo album, Black Labyrinth.

"It's completely different. It's a different thing," Davis said of the album's sound. "It's something I've been working on for 10 years. It's just a crazy, different world music hybrid of all kinds of things, and there are all kinds of different players who play on the record. And I'm really proud of it."

Inspired in part by the Ganzfeld Experiment, and the out-of-body experiments and hallucinations that often accompany it, Davis focused on religion, consumerism and apathy throughout the album.

"With all of the bulls**t going, everyone is stuck on their f**king cell phones," he adds. "This takes us way out of that. No matter how hard you try to fight bad things in your life, life will be what it is. It's up to you to accept that, combat it, and move forward, or it's up to you to be in denial. Then it becomes a thorn in your side until you finally deal with it. This is it. Just deal with it."

Black Labyrinth will be released on May 25 via Sumerian Records.
