Little did we know that Brian Hugh Warner, Canton, Ohio’s leader of ’90s counter culture still had it in him after all these years on the public circuit, but we’re learning quick with Warner, better known as Marilyn Manson’s most recent visual release. For his new title track for his forthcoming tenth studio LP titled Say10 Manson has employed a few rousing and graphic images to make his point exceedingly clear. The 47-year-old cult industrial rock figure uses this brief clip to rip pages from the Holy Bible and highlight the decapitated faux body of presidential candidate Donald Trump; these images are played out as Manson sings about the trials and tribulations of money on man. The camera pans to a scene of the aforementioned faux decapitated body much resembling Trump while the lyrics, “You say God and I say Satan,” reign on.
During July’s Alternative Press Tour last year where Manson received the Icon Award for his contributions to alternative music and pop culture as a whole, he took the press opportunity to write the Say10 album title on his palm with an accompanying date and held it up to the cameras mid-interview. According to this unconventional album release announcement, Say10 is due out February 14, 2017.
“It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
“Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow—and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of,” Manson explained to The Daily Beast in regards to the new video. “It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.” Watch the the clip for Marilyn Manson’s “Say10” video above and when you’re done, head here for more music news.
