Marilyn Manson Releases ‘Born Villain’ Today [VIDEO]
Today is the day that Manson freaks all over the world have been waiting three years for, the release of his “comeback” album ‘Born Villain”. This is his eighth album and follows up 2009′s ‘The High End Of Low’. In a recent interview Manson says that the album’s title is all about the role he sees himself playing in music:
The villain is the most important character in any story. It’s the person that creates change, it’s the person who is a catalyst and things like that. The hero always stays the same. The hero’s static; they’re not really relevant in the sense of changing the world. I’m not talking about bad guys, I’m talking about a villain, a proper villain, and that’s what I think that I am and that’s what I was born to become.
Manson has been quoted saying about the record,
It doesn’t really sound like any of my old records . . . It’s very rhythm-driven. It’s actually very bluesy.
The album also features a duet between Manson and Johnny Depp on the Carly Simon classic, “You’re So Vain”. This will also be the first album back with longtime bassist Twiggy Ramirez, who comes back after a nine-year absence from the group. Manson will be playing the Myth in Maplewood on May 18 and REV has your tickets. Find full details on the show on the REV EVENTS PAGE.
