Last time we heard new music from Marilyn Manson was in 2017 with “Heaven Upside Down”, but a new studio album is on the way. It is titled “We Are Chaos” and will be released on 11th September under Loma Vista label.
First single from this album is now released to teas us. Manson explains: “When I listen to We Are Chaos now, it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title-track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today. This was recorded to its completion without anyone hearing it until it was finished. There is most definitely a side A and side B in the traditional sense. But just like an LP, it is a flat circle and it’s up to the listener to put the last piece of the puzzle into the picture of songs.”
He continues: “This concept album is the mirror Shooter [Jennings] and I built for the listener – it’s the one we won’t stare into. There are so many rooms, closets, safes, and drawers. But in the soul or your museum of memories, the worst are always the mirrors. Shards and slivers of ghosts haunted my hands when I wrote most of these lyrics.
“Making this record, I had to think to myself: ‘Tame your crazy, stitch your suit. And try to pretend that you are not an animal,’ but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all. Making mercy is like making a murder. Tears are the human body’s largest export.”
