A new MARILYN MANSON song titled "Cupid Carries A Gun" can be streamed on Spotify and is also available in the YouTube clip below. The track is taken from the shock-rocker's new album, "The Pale Emperor", which will be released on January 19 via his own label — Hell, etc. — in a joint venture with Cooking Vinyl.
"Cupid Carries A Gun" marked Manson's TV scoring debut when it appeared on the new WGN series "Salem" last April.
Manson told The Hollywood Reporter that the track "was the last track we just finished for my new album," adding "I liked the themes of 'Salem'. It looks at the witch trials without being cliche like most modern films."

Manson's most recent full-length CD, "Born Villain", his eighth overall, debuted in the Top 10 on The Billboard 200 chart. The effort earned the singer his fourth Grammy nomination at the 2013 Grammys in the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category for the album's lead single, "No Reflection".
Manson has been cast in a recurring role in the hit FX series "Sons Of Anarchy". Manson plays Ron Tully, a "white supremacist prison shot-caller" who Charlie Hunnam's character, "Sons Of Anarchy" president Jax, uses to expand his power base during the show's seventh season.
Manson has been steadily working his way into television in the past couple of years, making appearances on Showtime's "Californication", the Sundance Channel's "Wrong Cops" and HBO's "Eastbound & Down", along with voicing a demonic character on ABC's "Once Upon A Time".
