This upcoming record will be Marilyn Manson’s 11th studio album and it was teased all the way back in March of 2019. Manson posted a photo saying he was on his way to finishing his album.
Shortly after, he told Revolver that the album was almost finished and was incomparable to anything he had done before.
I’m in a mode in life where I wanted to tell stories with this record, and it’s sort of like a wax museum of my thoughts, a study of the chamber of horrors in my head,” Manson said.
“All the romance and hope you can have in the world, here in the End Times where it can be a different kind of apocalypse for each person listening to the record. I tried to paint it with words, and Shooter with sounds, so you can see and hear all of your longing, your passion and despair. That’s sort of a dramatic explanation of it. But it is full of drama. I wouldn’t compare it to any of my other records, but you hear a bit of everything. It’s like I’ve focused everything into one spot, finally.”
Next, in February, Marilyn Manson posted a cryptic photo of a frequency wave with the #youhavenoideawhatiscoming and #2020.
Now, album collaborator Shooter Jennings took to Instagram to say that the album is finished.

Marilyn Manson hopped into the comments to confirm the news.
Love my Shooter, Misty & Pancake. Finished masterpiece album. And Matt Mahurin. Shit is gonna get real.
So now all we have left to do is wait. If you need something to tide you over until we get more news, Marilyn Manson has collaborated with Jennings in the past.
The pair initially linked up in 2016 for Jennings’ cover version of “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)” for his Countach (For Giorgio) LP, a covers collection featuring songs by electronic-music pioneer Giorgio Moroder. Check that out below.
