Why Slipknot Hasn't Released 'Look Outside Your Window'

Why Slipknot Hasn’t Released ‘Look Outside Your Window’

Shawn “Clown” Crahan recently shared reasons why Slipknot haven’t released their album, Look Outside Your Window, yet.

The percussionist appeared on the show Andy Hall’s Access for an interview and discussed the highly-anticipated, but still unreleased album, which was recorded during the All Hope Is Gone sessions.

The album was initially expected to be released in late 2019, but its release has been delayed multiple times since then. Clown has promised that Look Outside Your Window will come out sometime in 2024, yet the year is more than halfway through with no further details.

“The only reason it’s not been out is because A, it’s a timeless album. It can be released 10 years ago, 10 years from now, today, and so on and so forth,” Clown explained.

“The main reason, and it sounds like BS but this is the truth, every time we’ve gotten it to a place where we were gonna pull the trigger, life has thrown the band through a circumstance of some sorts.”

Clown assured fans that everything is complete, including the artwork and all production steps. However, the band likes to promote their releases properly, and the timing hasn’t allowed for that yet.

“But I do believe we’re gonna get it out this year. I don’t see it as one of these things. It’s not like we’re gonna go tour it. That doesn’t mean we won’t play some shows,” he continued.

“It is gonna come out. You have my word. There’s no drama. It needs its right time. It needs its own space and not to share with anybody or anything else. So it has its due time in this reality. So that’s all I can say.”

Clown has addressed similar queries about the album on Reddit, stating, “Up until now, things we’ve been doing have taken priority. It has to come out, I promise it will come out soon.”

Fans have been eagerly awaiting Look Outside Your Window, which has created a lot of buzz over the years. According to the band, the album has a distinct sound and vibe, setting it apart from other Slipknot records.

Clown and the band seem committed to ensuring that the album gets its proper moment. This approach indicates that Look Outside Your Window needs a specific atmosphere for its release.

Although Slipknot is known for their high-energy performances and heavy sound, Look Outside Your Window is said to be different. The album is expected to showcase a more experimental side of the band, featuring songs that diverge from their usual style.

Slipknot fans can take solace in knowing that the band is dedicated to making sure the album is released in the right way at the right time. The wait may be long, but the end result promises to be worth it.

The delay also adds to the mystique and anticipation surrounding the album, as Slipknot continues to navigate their career while dealing with life’s unpredictable challenges.

For now, fans can only wait and keep an eye out for any further updates from the band. Given Clown’s assurance, it seems likely that 2024 will indeed be the year that Look Outside Your Window finally sees the light of day.

Having everything completed and ready, including the artwork, is a positive sign that the band is just waiting for the perfect moment to share the album with the world.

With Slipknot’s proven track record of delivering memorable music, Look Outside Your Window is highly anticipated and destined to make an impact once it’s released. Fans can only be patient for what’s to come.
