Corey Taylor has shared an acoustic version of his latest single, “Black Eyes Blue,” which appears on his debut solo album, CMFT.

The stripped-down version of the song really brings out Taylor’s powerful vocals and the track’s personal lyrics. Listen to the new version below.

Both the original and acoustic versions of “Black Eyes Blue” are available to purchase now via digital outlets.

The Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman released CMFT earlier this month. The original “Black Eyes Blue” is currently No. 2 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs chart.
