The Deftones are in the process of making a new album currently, but Chino Moreno (singer) also explained recently to Apple Music host Zane Lowe that the band has been looking at ways to re-release or remix their famous White Pony album. Chino said, “Actually it’s funny because we talked about this when the record came out that we wanted to remix the White Pony record. Our initial idea was we’re going to get the masters of the White Pony record. And we’re going to put some money in a briefcase and the masters in a briefcase. And we’re going to go to DJ Shadow’s house and we’re just going to hand it off to him and say like, ‘Here man, remix this record.’ And we wanted to call it the Black Stallion.” The band hoped to release their new album this summer, but with the pandemic afoot, they may push it back, as they also wanted to tour to promote the new album. Here is to hoping we get a new Deftones record sooner rather than later, and hopefully we hear more of the White Pony re-release. You can read more of Chino’s interview right here.
Last but certainly not least, someone recently made a 90 second super cut of every time Jonathon Davis of Korn sings the word “Me”. Why you ask? Why not seems to be the answer. I guess with the self quarantine, people are running out of things to do. Not the most creative use of time, but definitely a hilarious one!
