Marilyn Manson: 'My new album is real rock and roll'

Marilyn Manson has opened up about his forthcoming album.

The rocker will unleash 'The Pale Emperor' on January 19.

Speaking in a new interview with NME, the US star said that working with film composer Tyler Bates has positively affected the songwriting process.

Manson said: "This album is real rock and roll, and it happened naturally. It felt like ‘Wow, this is suddenly what I’m supposed to do'.

"Tyler would write the music and say ‘Would you like to sing on this?’ At the end of ‘Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge’, you can hear me improvising lyrics, going ‘Mm, mm, hmm’ while Tyler’s guitar comes across my vocals. It felt right while it was happening, and there were no songs that didn’t get finished."

The controversial singer added: "The album feels tied in to the fable of Mephistopheles, where life is fated. I haven’t felt this way since ‘Holy Wood’, where fate has brought things together for a reason.

"It feels as if things were meant to fall into this exact place. This isn’t the ultimate of what I can achieve, but I’m showing proper respect for myself and what I’ve created in the past. It’s what was meant to be."
