Marilyn Manson has been working on a new album, and in a new interview with Revolver, the Antichrist Superstar reveals that his 11th studio effort might be the one that's self-titled.
"It's still to be determined, but I think it's the album that should be called Marilyn Manson," he explains. "I'm in a mode in life where I wanted to tell stories with this record, and it's sort of like a wax museum of my thoughts, a study of the chamber of horrors in my head."
"It is full of drama," Manson adds of the new material. "I wouldn't compare it to any of my other records, but you hear a bit of everything -- it's like I've focused everything into one spot, finally."
Manson is recording the new album with Shooter Jennings, who recently worked with Duff McKagan on the Guns N' Roses bassist's latest solo release, Tenderness. The pair previously linked up to cover David Bowie's "Cat People."
"A lot of people like to refer to [Jennings'] style of music as 'country,' but I regard it more as 'southern,'" Manson says.
As for when we'll get to hear Manson's next opus, the follow-up to 2017's Heaven Upside Down, he says it'll be out before the year is over.
"I plan on going on the Twins of Evil tour [with Rob Zombie], and I have an art book that I'm going to release, and I'll probably have a bunch of exhibitions all over to go along with it," Manson explains. "And then I'll release the album after that."
Manson's tour with Zombie launches Tuesday night in Baltimore, Maryland.
