Machine Gun Kelly says his next album will be “more guitar-heavy” and contain “deeper” lyrics.
The 31-year-old musician’s fifth studio album, “Born with Horns” was released in August and the “Wild Boy” hitmaker suggested it would contrast with his previous album “Tickets to my Downfall”, which was himself. even a complete departure from his hip-hop sound.
Kelly told “Sunday Today with Willie Geist”: “It sounds heavier on the guitar, sure, the lyrics go deeper – but I never like to do anything like that.
“Each album is a juxtaposition of the last album. So I went to study ‘Tickets’, and I heard the brilliant sound that I had, and for this album I just turned the lights off.”
The star – real name Colson Baker – admits he’s no longer “afraid” of hiding his “real me” and embracing different sounds.
Kelly explained, “I’m not afraid anymore, nothing is stopping me from being my real self – and my real self cannot be silenced, cannot be held back. It is a force, it is is like a hurricane. I can’t stop it, it just keeps going until I want to stop, and I don’t want to stop anytime soon. “
The rapper was locked in a war of words with Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor as he mocked the heavy metal rocker for wearing masks on stage and “talking shit” during a performance on the last month.
Kelly had said on stage at Riot Fest in Chicago: “You want to know what I’m really happy not to do? Being 50 wearing weird af ****** mask on af ****** stage, talking shit. “
MGK claimed the feud dates back to last year, when he asked Corey to be a guest on a song for “Tickets To My Downfall,” but didn’t use it because it was. “F ****** terrible”.
He tweeted, “Corey did a verse for a song on my drop album tickets, it was f ****** terrible so I didn’t use it.
“He got angry and told a magazine about the same album he was almost on. all the stories are extinct. just admit it’s bitter. (sic) “
