LISTEN: Marilyn Manson Shares 'Don't Chase The Dead'
Marilyn Manson has released “Don’t Chase The Dead” from his new album We Are Chaos.
It’s the second single from the 10-track collection – his 11th studio album and first since 2017’s Heaven Upside Down. Shooter Jennings (Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker) produced the album, which Manson wrote and recorded before the pandemic.
“When I listen to We Are Chaos now, it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today,” Manson explained, in a release.
The 51-year-old shock rocker continued: “This concept album is the mirror Shooter and I built for the listener — it's the one we won't stare into. There are so many rooms, closets, safes and drawers. But in the soul or your museum of memories, the worst are always the mirrors. Shards and slivers of ghosts haunted my hands when I wrote most of these lyrics.
"Making this record, I had to think to myself: ‘Tame your crazy, stitch your suit. And try to pretend that you are not an animal’ but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all. Making mercy is like making murder. Tears are the human body's largest export.”
