Marilyn Manson has released a trailer video for his forthcoming album which will be titled ‘Born Villain’ with an official release date to be announced.
Due to its graphic nature, we can only link to the video for you here. Viewer discretion is advised.
“‘Born Villain’ is the title of the new Marilyn Manson album. While looking to experiment in unlikely collaborations, I met Shia [Labeouf, ‘Transformers’], and we spent a long night at my studio. After seeing ‘Maniac,’ his short film, which is somewhat inspired by ‘Man Bites Dog,’ I was astonished by his directing ability. So I shared quite a few of my favorite inspirations in art, literature, and obviously…film.
“I was impressed with how Shia digested my world, and made what I’d like to think, is both an homage and a mockery of the history of Cinema. We ended up writing a short film, and just recently released a trailer. The score is from my new album, and is, in the words of Macbeth, ‘full of sound and fury.’ I find the idea of a yawning MGM lion far more interesting than a roaring one. You ask why we did this? ‘No reason.'”
