He’s baaaaack… I expect to be dancing happily to this in dingy clubs for the rest of the year. Truly, one of my favourite people ever. Far too clever for the likes of us.
“The new record put simply has the ambition and determination of how I started making music in the first place,” Manson says in an official statement. “It sounds like the first record in that it’s not afraid to do anything. I had to remove myself from my lifestyle and start fresh.”
He’s talking about Born Villain, for official release on 30 April.
“It doesn’t really sound like any of my old records,” Manson says in an upcoming Revolver magazine cover story. “In fact it sort of sounds like what I listened to before I made records — Killing Joke, Joy Division, Revolting Cocks, Bauhaus, Birthday Party…It’s very rhythm-driven. I think this will probably be the grandest concept record of all.”
