New Music Friday continues with Marilyn Manson‘s cover of The Lost Boys soundtrack selection “Cry Little Sister.” The original Gerard McMahon song was first released alongside the classic horror film in 1987. Hear Manson’s new version below.

According to Blabbermouth.net, Manson recorded his cover of McMahon’s “Cry Little Sister” for inclusion on another movie soundtrack: Marvel Entertainment‘s upcoming X-Men film The New Mutants, which is due in U.S. theaters Aug. 2.
Consequently, a music video for the singer’s “Cry Little Sister” cover is expected soon, reportedly helmed by frequent video collaborator Bill Yukich (who recently directed clips for Shinedown‘s ATTENTION ATTENTION album, in addition to past work with Beyoncé and Jack White). Manson teased the vid last month, calling it “a supernatural experience.”
McMahon’s original studio recording of “Cry Little Sister” (release under the alias Gerard McMann) didn’t chart in the U.S., but the Lost Boys soundtrack album itself did earn a peak chart position of No. 15 on the Billboard 200 in July 1988.
McMahon said he “wanted it to be about the longing for family from a rejected youth’s perspective, which I went through myself and that many of us have felt,” according to an archived interview with a dormant music blog called Old School.
Manson adds horror to X-Men franchise
And the new X-Men movie The New Mutants is reportedly the franchise’s first stab at offering a legitimate horror picture, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. The film follows five new mutants as they fight to escape from a secret facility.
“We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe,” says director and screenwriter, Josh Boone. “There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different.”
