Some of you may not be into Marilyn Manson, but we’ve been fans since the 90s with his album Portrait of an American Family (and single Cake and Sodomy) Take a listen here (NSFW definitely).

Manson has just released his song Cupid Carries a Gun from his upcoming album, The Pale Emperor. Take a listen!

Marilyn released the music video and full length track for Cupid Carries a Gun, from his upcoming album.

We like the song but the video was a little boring for a Manson video! (NSFW due to offensive language)”

Manson co-wrote the tune with Tyler Bates, who is best known for scoring movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Rob Zombie’s Halloween.

Bates said, “Manson and I wrote a draft of ‘Cupid Carries a Gun’ shortly before I began working on the score for Salem.  A couple weeks later I saw the title sequence and the song immediately came to mind. I showed it to Manson for fun more than anything, and it inspired us to finish the song that night.”

Manson said at the time, “The song ‘Cupid Carries a Gun’ was the last track we just finished for my new album. The occult and witchcraft [are] so often used in cinema with a heinous disregard for even researching its origins. However, I liked the themes of Salem. It looks at the witch trials without being cliché like most modern films.”

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Manson revealed that many of the songs on The Pale Emperor were recorded in a single take.

He explained the album, saying, “It’s dirty, like the dirt under my nails, like someone who has dug a grave.”
