The single includes a new visual directed by Craig Bernard and Culley Bunker.
Capping what has been a career year for the legendary outfit Korn, the band has debuted a new remix version of the single “Worst Is On the Way” from their lauded 2022 studio album, Requiem. In a year marked by a relentless touring schedule with several sold out appearances, all in addition to the band’s rank as fixtures on both the domestic and international festival circuit, Korn reiterates their enduring relevance with the reimagining of their music through a trio of contemporary gamechangers.
Tapping genre smashing aggressors HEALTH to helm the composition, revered lyricists Danny Brown and Meechy Darko of Flatbush Zombies deliver dynamic bars over the track’s menacing pulse in a rework that showcases the artistry of Korn in a whole new light.
In terms of the nexus among the artists, HEALTH has long been championed for their collaborative ingenuity. Earlier this year, the collective released the latest in their collaboration compilation series with Disco4 :: Part II, a project that saw HEALTH teaming with a diverse ensemble of creative cohorts including Lamb of God, Nine Inch Nails, Poppy, The Body, Backxwash with H09909 and more.
While Danny Brown has long championed the kind of influence Korn has instilled in his craft, citing the album Issues as one of his favorites, the union of Jonathan Davis and Danny Brown piqued interest this summer when the two connected for an episode of The Talkhouse podcast. Since then, the conversation regarding a collaboration continued to swell amongst fans.
As for Meechy Darko, the co-founder of Flatbush Zombies marked an important career milestone in 2022 with the release of his solo debut, Gothic Luxury. The celebrated solo effort is being hailed as an insightful, ominous work of harrowing hip hop anchored by Meechy’s vivid delivery. With features including Denzel Curry, Busta Rhymes, Freddie Gibbs, and Black Thought of the mighty Roots crew, Meechy’s stock has seen an exponential leap in 2022.
