Marilyn Manson has released a video for his track “Say10” featuring his friend, actor and musician Johnny Depp. Watch the NSFW promo, which features simulated sex acts and some nudity, above. The track appears on Manson’s latest album, Heaven Upside Down, which was released on Oct. 6.
“After the the balloons have all shriveled up and are swallowed in the puddles of puke and idealism, don’t look to me for sympathy,” the shock rocker said of the video. “I am here to be all that I am accused of not being. And to be blamed for what you made me. The shots you will hear are from a mouth disguised as a gun. Don’t call this art. This is a hard c— in a room full of vampires and the music, man. The music is my foul blood on your faces.”
Last month Manson said that, although he had no immediate political ambitions, he’d consider becoming involved “if Johnny Depp is president and I’m the vice-president.” He added: “[W]e’d set new holidays for sure. Johnny Depp Day, Marilyn Manson Day. I wouldn’t live in the White House… it’s too white and too stupid-looking.” He admitted he hadn’t voted in the recent U.S. election, explaining: “I don’t think that, as an artist, I can make as much of a difference voting as I can the commentaries I make in music on my next record.”
Manson is currently recovering from injuries sustained when a stage prop fell on him during a performance on Oct. 1. No details have been released, but he’s expected to resume his tour in support of Heaven Upside Down on Oct. 15.
