Marilyn Manson 'beheads Donald Trump' in new music video

Marilyn Manson is seen beheading a man who looks like Donald Trump in a gruesome new video.

The singer has released a preview clip for the title track of his upcoming new record 'Say10', which is set to be released in February.

It sees the rocker toy with a bible before he picks a knife. A man who bears a close resemblance to Republican presidential candidate is then seen beheaded.

Speaking to the Daily Beast, Manson said the video was created to make people think.

It was released to coincide with polls opening on Tuesday (November 8) for the presidential vote.

He said: "As an artist my duty is to ask the questions. The viewer must answer them. Either way tomorrow goes, the visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow. It’s about the desperate acts of people who believe something that is preached by an unbeliever.

"Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow – and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of.

"It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements."
