Marilyn Manson announces title of his new album: “Born Villain”.
Marilyn Manson announced the a title of his brand new album on his web site yesterday and it is to be called : “Born Villain”.
A piece of film directed by Shia LaBeouf, with music by Manson is also on his official website. This piece is called Born Villain too.
This is what it is:
from www.marilynmanson.com <http://www.marilynmanson.com> :
Manson had this to say:
“‘Born Villain’ is the title of the new Marilyn Manson album. While looking to experiment in unlikely collaborations, I met Shia, 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 <http://bornvillain.com/> . 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?
The clip is here: http://bornvillain.com/ YOU MUST BE OVER THE AGE OF 18 TO WATCH IT.
Please note that this is not an official video for a first single off the album. Manson explains what it actually is very well on his site (see above).
A release date for the album has yet to be set.
