It feels like yesterday that Marilyn Manson was hyping a misogynistic, NSFW video to his new emo song “Running to the Edge of the World,” but alas, his latest album, The High End Low, will likely be the aging shock goth’s last major label effort. In an interview with Metal Hammer (via Blabbermouth), Manson revealed that he has reunited with girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood (star of Bono and the Edge’s upcoming Spider-Man musical) and that he has been “released” from his contract with Interscope Records.
Manson goes on to claim that much of his “creative output has been squashed” by his former label in the past, “so now [he] think[s] people can expect a whole lot more,” including a new album that he boasts will be “a bit like [Bowie’s] Aladdin Sane.”
As you may recall, it was Trent Reznor who first signed Manson to his Interscope vanity label Nothing Records back in the day, so perhaps the former friends will reunite now that they’re both free from the majors. Also: Trent Reznor’s still checking his Twitter account, Manson, so there’s your in.
