After cautioning fans to “Prepare,” Marilyn Manson dropped his new single “We Are Chaos” on Wednesday (July 29), which marks the first taste of what is coming on his eleventh studio album of the same name.

Manson also debuted a Matt Mahurin helmed visual to accompany the new track, “We Are Chaos.”

The new album, We Are Chaos is scheduled to be released on September 11 via Loma Vista Recordings and is co-produced by Shooter Jennings (Brandi Carlile, Tanya Tucker).

“When I listen to WE ARE CHAOS now, it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today,” Manson said when talking about We Are Chaos. “This was recorded to its completion without anyone hearing it until it was finished. There is most definitely a side A and side B in the traditional sense. But just like an LP, it is a flat circle and it’s up to the listener to put the last piece of the puzzle into the picture of songs.“

Continuing to say, “This concept album is the mirror Shooter and I built for the listener — it’s the one we won’t stare into. There are so many rooms, closets, safes and drawers. But in the soul or your museum of memories, the worst are always the mirrors. Shards and slivers of ghosts haunted my hands when I wrote most of these lyrics. Making this record, I had to think to myself: ‘Tame your crazy, stitch your suit. And try to pretend that you are not an animal,’ but I knew that mankind is the worst of them all. Making mercy is like making murder. Tears are the human body’s largest export.”

The cover art for the new record features one of Manson’s self-portraits, which you can see below.
