On the latest episode of SPIN Presents Lipps Service, host Scott Lipps sat down Korn singer Jonathan Davis. In their conversation, Lipps and Davis discussed Korn’s return to touring after COVID, the band’s new album Requiem and his memories of Woodstock 99. Additionally, Davis described battling long COVID. “I’m still fatigued like crazy,” Davis said. “I’m doing the best I can. But I’m alive. And hopefully, in time, this will get better.”

Davis also didn’t rule out that bassist Fieldy may be back with the band sometime soon. He told Lipps that Fieldy needed some time off and “when he’s ready, he’ll be ready.”
