Slipknot’s Sid Wilson Announces Solo Album, Drops Tripped Out Track ‘The Cure’
Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson has just dropped a new track, “†He(c)U(R)e,” from his next solo hip-hop album. Along with a video for the track, Wilson has revealed an Aug. 17 release date for the new album, titled ∫∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ øƒ †h3 høP∑£3∫∫ ®øbø†¡¢ (Sexcapades of the Hopeless Robotic).
Wilson released two albums under his SID moniker in 2011. Focusing on Slipknot’s .5: The Gray Chapter album in the years since, along with a few collaborations with other artists, Wilson hasn’t been super active as a solo artist for the past few years. “†He(c)U(R)e” marks his return to the rap and experimental music world, making a creepy and tripped out music video for the track.
“‘†He©U®e’ represents our hero SID’s final straw with the human race,” Wilson explains. “He has tried countless times to share what he calls ‘†He©U®e’ with every being he has come into contact with and cared for. With zero success rate he is now seeing his bleak lonely future thru a series of time travels and quantum jumps using directional elements in their eco-system on an planet the hUM∆N∫ call ‘Earth.’ Seeing how addictions play out within the hUM∆N∫, he soon realizes that he can’t keep injecting this ‘©U®e’ due to the adaptations that have occurred thru out their evolution's, and a tolerance to ‘†He©U®e’ has began to develop deep inside the DNA of the hUM∆N∫. Will he find salvation else where, or should he of stayed amongst the hUM∆N∫?"
SID promises more music will be released before the full album drops next month. Wilson is even planning some rare live shows to support the record, so look out for those. Check out the album art for ∫∑x©∆p∆D∑∫ øƒ †h3 høP∑£3∫∫ ®øbø†¡¢ below and click here to pre-order the record.
