Listen to “Don’t Chase the Dead” before the September 11th release of Manson’s latest album.
Just before the September 11th release of counter culture icon Marilyn Manson’s eleventh studio album, We Are Chaos, a second single has surfaced.
“Don’t Chase the Dead” offers another glimpse into the rock opus produced by country collaborator, Shooter Jennings.
Manson offered the following of the stylishly brooding, Bowie-esque joint effort.
“This concept album is the mirror Shooter and I built for the listener — it’s the one we won’t stare into. There are so many rooms, closets, safes and drawers. But in the soul or your museum of memories, the worst are always the mirrors. Shards and slivers of ghosts haunted my hands when I wrote most of these lyrics.”
Manson continued, “Making this record, I had to think to myself: ‘Tame your crazy, stitch your suit. And try to pretend that you are not an animal’ but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all. Making mercy is like making murder. Tears are the human body’s largest export.”
The release of “Don’t Chase the Dead” follows the introduction to the record with the title track that premiered earlier this summer.
We Are Chaos will be available everywhere on September 11th.
