Video: Marilyn Manson’s Cruel World
Marilyn Manson has released a video for Hey Cruel World, the opening track from recent album Born Villain. View it below.
The shock-rocker, who’s currently on the road with Rob Zombie with their Twins of Evil Tour, says he’s planning to release a special edition of the record in the coming weeks.
He tells Billboard: “They’re not just acoustic versions or demos or stuff like that – they’re really good songs that were going to go on the album. But I didn’t want the album to be too long. I knew there would be the opportunity to use them for something.”
The release will also include additional artwork, a book and “stuff like that.”
he says of the Born Villain original version: “I’ve enjoyed watching it come to life and seeing what people relate to. I think it sounds as raw as I wanted it to. I’m into changing one person’s mind. If I see someone smile or get angry or take their shirt off or try to stab me, then I know I made an effect – not that I want things to happen in that order.”
