Korn Debut First Single ‘Never Never,’ Push Back Release Date For ‘The Paradigm Shift’


It’s been a long time coming, but Korn are gearing up to release their 11th studio album, ‘The Paradigm Shift,’ early next month. With the album’s name, artwork and track listing all revealed, the band finally debuted the record’s first single, ‘Never Never,’ on radio yesterday (Aug. 6) and the song can be heard right now!

‘Never Never’ encompasses some of the electronic elements the band explored on Korn’s last disc, ‘The Path of Totality,’ but according to past interviews with guitarist Munky, ‘The Paradigm Shift’ as a whole was inspired by past albums like ‘Issues’ and ‘Untouchables.’ Munky recently told radio station KROQ that Korn’s new music is “a little more melodic and a little more aggressive at the same time.”

‘The Paradigm Shift’ also marks the official return of guitarist Brian “Head” Welch since his departure from the band seven years ago. Welch last appeared on Korn’s 2003 full-length, ‘Take a Look in the Mirror.’

Originally slated to be released on Oct. 1 through Prospect Park Records, the release date for ‘The Paradigm Shift’ has been pushed back a week and is now scheduled to drop on Oct. 8. It will be available in both standard and deluxe editions with the deluxe showcasing two bonus tracks. Listen to Korn’s ‘Never Never’ in the player below!
