Guitarist  Jim Root  recently posted  a photo on his Instagram account  to let fans know that  Slipknot  is working on new material, and singer  Corey Taylor  confirms the news -- there will be a new album this year. Beyond that, Taylor won't say much, including who might be standing in -- permanently or temporarily -- for newly-departed Slipknot drummer  Joey Jordison . who parted ways with the band in January. "We are making an album, that's all I can say," Taylor tells ABC News Radio. "[Keeping details secret is] a necessary evil."

In the midst of the down-low Slipknot recording comes other band news -- Slipknot turntablist  Sid Wilson  has just signed an exclusive recording contract with Sono Recording Group, with digital distribution rights by Spotify. Wilson appears under the names of " Sid " and " DJ Starscream ," a nod to the  Transformers  franchise.
