“We’ve spent seven years messing around and only recording for an hour or two at a time,” the No Such Thing As A Fish team said in a press release. “This year we are thrilled to be pushing ourselves to the absolute limit in the service of one of the best causes around. We aim to read out every fact in the world at least once.”

The musician has previously appeared on the No Such Thing As A Fish podcast, as well as on its parent show QI.
Meanwhile, Taylor has discussed the direction of Slipknot’s next album, saying the band are “entering a realm that we’ve never been [to]”.
“Me and Clown have talked about something really, really cool, if we can pull it off,” he told Matt Pinfield of 95.5 KLOS. “There’s a chance that it could be conceptual — if we can really do it right.
“I mean, the music is brilliant. It expands on what we did with [2019’s] ’We Are Not Your Kind’ — it kind of blossoms from there — but the great thing is, it’s got not only that, but it’s got everything that you would want from a Slipknot project; there’s the heavy stuff, there’s the dark stuff, there’s the melodic stuff, there’s the weird stuff. We have so many different flavours that we can play with that, now, at this point, it’s just us kind of mixing and matching and seeing what excites us.”
