Marilyn Manson has finalised his work on his upcoming studio album.
Manson's collaborator Shooter Jennings said that the follow-up to "Heaven Upside Down" (2017) was "finished", calling it a "masterpiece." Manson replied to Shooter's post, writing in the comments "Finished masterpiece album" and "Shit is gonna get real".
A year ago, in April 2019, Manson said in an interview: "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," he 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".
