Marilyn Manson Discusses New Concept For Next Album

December 3 [10:15 EDT] -- If you enjoyed the goth-rock concept album approach that Marilyn Manson employed on "Antichrist Superstar," you'll be thrilled to hear that he has another epic tale in the work for his next album.

"If 'Antichrist Superstar' was sort of my comparative fall from grace, Lucifer being kicked from heaven, this next record is about what happens on Earth now," Manson recently explained to MTV News. "(It's about) sort of trying to fit into a society that thinks it's full of emotions and that you're a callous person, when in fact you're the one that actually has all these feelings and it's the world that's kind of numb to them. It's almost the antithesis of what I just did."

That Manson album will feature at least a bit of the production talents of the Dust Brothers (see Manson, Weiland, Wyclef, Beck Line Up For Dust Brothers.)

Manson discussed his next album, and a number of other timely topics when

he sat down for an interview for MTV's "Year In Rock" special, which will premiere Friday, December 12 at 7:30 p.m.
