Korn is back in the studio working on finishing up their new album.  

This would be exciting news for any Korn fan, but to add to the excitement is the official news that original guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch is recording on the full album. 

The band recently announced that Welch would be joining them on their upcoming tour, playing a full set with the band for the first time in 8 years. There was no confirmation if he was back in the band for good, but recording on the record would have fans believe that he is back in the band for good.  

This exclusive clip shows the veteran rockers laying down a winding, contemplative track in Buck Owens Studios in Bakersfield, California.

Welch last played with Korn on their 2003 album Take a Look in the Mirror, but the guitarist felt an instant reconnection with his bandmates. "We knew we would have a blast playing together, because we love each other so much, but we really wanted to make sure the music felt right before we committed to making a whole album together," Welch tells Rolling Stone. "But since we got in the studio, everything just started pouring out, now I can't wait until our fans hear this stuff!"

Korn's still-untitled album is due late summer. They'll kick off a world tour on May 15th at the Rostraver Ice Garden in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania.
