A week ahead of the September 13th release of their new album The Nothing, Korn are back once more with the LP's majestic third single, "Can You Hear Me." The song comes paired with an eerie and elaborate visualizer to drum up fan interest in not only the track, but also the surprise announcement of the band's new dramatized crime podcast.
More even-keeled and melodic than the first two singles off this record — "You'll Never Find Me" and "Cold" — "Can You Hear Me" is a synth-laden anthem that really shows off the dynamism in Jonathan Davis' voice. There's a hefty bit of doom in this one, sounding almost like Torche at their most pop but never abandoning the signature core groove that makes Korn Korn.
The accompanying visualizer doubles as the trailer for the group's six-part podcast, also titled The Nothing, which revolves around the story of a journalist who travels to a remote town in Kansas to investigate a teenage girl's disappearance and finds much more than he expected. If the filming style of the clip and even an actor or two look familiar in the clip, you might recall that director Adam Mason was also at the helm for Black Antenna, the episodic sci-fi film released by Korn's recent tour mates Alice in Chain. No air dates have yet been revealed for The Nothing podcast, but stay tuned for updates over the coming weeks.
