Marilyn Manson has recently confirmed working on a new album, describing the new material as a fusion of "old blues" and "very hard elements."
As the singer told Kerrang magazine, a "considerable body of work" is already done. "It's very cinematic," he said (via NME). "The redneck in me comes out in my voice, and it's got some old blues mixed with the very hard elements. I want to retain what I think is good about the past, what music I did and who I am. It's not about being pissed about the world - it's about realizing someone has to f--k things up."
One of Manson's recent performances includes an Avril Lavigne collaboration track "Bad Girl" on Canadian singer's latest self-titled studio album. In related news, Marilyn is scheduled to headline this year's Alt-Fest, marking his only UK festival appearance in 2014.
The latest Marilyn Manson studio effort, "Born Villain," saw its release in May 2012 via Cooking Vinyl Records.
