As Consequence of Sound notes, Deftones first revealed they were planning to release Black Stallion during a virtual press conference back in June, where discussed the 20th anniversary of White Pony. DJ Frank Delgado explained that the idea for the album even pre-dated the release of White Pony, saying: “We would talk about [White Pony before we released it], how good it was going to be, and we’d immediately jump to, ‘It’s going to be so good, we’re going to have [DJ] Shadow remix it and we’ll call it Black Stallion. I think one time we actually hit him up. He was playing here in town and I was opening DJing and me and Chino kind of cornered him.”
Deftones recently put out their ninth studio album, Ohms. Read our review of the album.
