The singer said that his tenth studio LP ‘SAY10’, which is due out in February 2017, was a return to his roots, in an interview with Rolling Stone.
“It’s not very much in any way like The Pale Emperor,” he said, referring to his last album. “The people who have heard the new songs said it reminded them of their favorite parts of Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals – but with a new, different approach.
Manson added that: “It’s is pretty violent in its nature for some reason. And it’s not emotional in the same way. It’s got a chip on its shoulder. I enjoyed doing it. I can’t wait for people to hear it. I think they’re going to be quite surprised.”
For ’SAY10’, Manson collaborated once again with composer Tyler Bates, who worked on 2015’s ‘The Pale Emperor’.
The American musician revealed the album in July, saying at the time that he plans to release it on Valentine’s Day.
Last week, Manson spoke out in defence of Johnny Depp after the actor was accused of domestic abuse by his former partner Amber Heard.
