Marilyn Manson Releases Title Of Forthcoming Album!

Marylin Manson

Marilyn Manson announced yesterday that his new album will share the same name as the short film he recently created with Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf - Born Villain.

Manson states, "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. 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."

Manson has released no other details of the new album apart from the title.
