Marilyn Manson's new song "Kill4me" can be streamed below. The track is taken from his new album, "Heaven Upside Down", which will be released on October 6. On the disc, he reunites with producer and film composer Tyler Bates following an epic collaboration on Manson's critically acclaimed 2015 release, "The Pale Emperor".
Manson told Loudwire about"Kill4me": "'Would you kill for me? / I love you enough so I'll ask you again / Would you kill for me? / You won't be kissing me unless you kill for me.' It’s a great conversation that came to be.
"I don't like songs that ask questions," he continued. "Some might say 'Would you kill for me?' is a question. It's more of a veiled threat than a question. It's an ultimatum, I think. I don't like songs to generally ask questions because it seems not as certain as I feel that I am. I like to tell people this is how I feel, and I might want them to ask questions from it, but I'm not gonna ask the question. It's like a letter, like someone's gonna respond to it."
Manson performed four new songs during his recently completed European tour.
Manson revealed in a September 2016 interview that his new album would be "the last thing people would expect after hearing 'The Pale Emperor'." He explained: "Coming from the people who I've played it to, it's a combination of 'Antichrist Superstar' and 'Mechanical Animals' in feeling."
Manson added: "It wasn't my intent to go backwards. Everything goes in a full circle and it just becomes, without cannibalizing work from the past, the same thing, which is ultimately you. I'm a little over-anxious to release it, so it was done very quickly, but it's by far the most thematic and over-complicated thing that I've done. In a way, it's deceptively delightful to strangers. It's like the old saying that the devil's greatest secret is that people don't believe he exists."
MARILYN MANSON's North American tour will kick off on September 27 in Silver Spring, Maryland.
