Working titles include "Basic Needs", "Medicate", "Happiness", " Final Days", "Russia", "August 12", and "Gender", which was previously said to have been inspired by Buffalo Bill and Silence of the Lambs. The band has also recorded 3 other untitled demos.
A cover of Lil Wayne's "Got Money" featuring Slipknot and Stone Sour guitarist James Root was recently made available for download on the band's official website, accompanied by a message from Davis to ". . . download the track I've been remixing the past few days. It's not representative of the album I'm working on but it was just something fun I wanted to try . . ."
Percussionist Mike Dillon is expected to appear on the album, as he was seen in the studio tracking.
According to MTV News, select songs on Jonathan Davis and the SFA's solo debut are being co-written by acclaimed songwriting team, The Matrix, better known for their production on Korn's 2005 album, See You on the Other Side.
In January 2011, Jonathan uploaded 3 full-length songs from the album on SoundCloud titled 'Medicate', 'Happiness' and 'Final Days'.
In December 2017, Davis confirmed that his debut album was to be released in 2018. He also stated that the SFA was no more, having dissolved the band after the death of Shane Gibson.
