With a release date of May 1st, Marilyn Manson’s eighth studio album Born Villain is already sounding like a return to the singer’s hard hitting heavy metal album Mechanical Animals. Manson released the first single off the album, No Reflection, today.
Mason previewed Born Villain on September 1, 2011 in a film directed by actor Shia LaBeouf. The band posted the following message on their website along with the release of LaBeouf’s film, saying:
“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. The score is from my new album, and is, in the words of Macbeth, ‘Full of sound and fury.”
