Marilyn Manson - Marilyn Manson Announces Born Villain

Marilyn Manson has confirmed his new album will be called 'Born Villain'.

The shock rocker announced his new record today (02.09.11) through his website and has given a preview of it in the form of a music video, directed by Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf.

The 'Beautiful People' hitmaker's announcement read: "'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 favourite inspirations in art, literature, and obviously.film.

"We ended up writing a short film, and just recently released a trailer. The score is from my new album, and is, in the words of Macbeth, `full of sound and fury.'"

The video sees Marilyn cutting the hair of two women, followed by a series of shocking images, including an amputee, a woman having a wire pierced through her cheek and Marilyn acting as a surgeon, soundtracked by a heavy metal song which has a repeated refrain of "no reason".

Speaking of their collaboration, Shia said: "Marilyn Manson to me is an indelible figure. He's a big deal to me, and in my childhood, I don't know of a scarier figure in art. He, in my teenage years, was the scariest thing in the world, so part of me has always been intrigued."

'Born Villain' will be released later this year.
