Marilyn Manson Sets ‘Born Villain’ As Name Of New Album

Marilyn Manson has dubbed his upcoming album Born Villain. Considering that was the name of the song released yesterday, I don’t think many people are surprised by this. He also posted on his official website a short blurb detailing the work that he has done with actor Shia LaBeouf:

“‘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. 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.'”
