Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has released a stream of his new single titled Basic Needs.

It’s taken from his upcoming solo album Black Labyrinth which is set to arrive on May 25 via Sumerian Records and follows the track Everyone (opens in new tab), which was revealed last month.

Speaking about the record, Davis said: “There’s a level of enlightenment I want to achieve. With all of the bullshit going, everyone is stuck on their fucking cell phones. 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.”

Davis is currently on tour across North America and will return to Europe in the coming weeks for a run of shows, which includes a set at the UK’s Download festival (opens in new tab).
