Marilyn Manson has exclusively revealed to nme.com more details of his new album ‘HOLY WOOD (IN THE SHADOW OF THE VALLEY OF DEATH)’, slated for release later this year through NOTHING/INTERSCOPE RECORDS.

Speaking to nme.com last week, the singer said he had already earmarked two songs, ‘The Fight Song’ and ‘Disposable Teens’, as singles and said that the latter track had been inspired by shamed glam rock icon Gary Glitter.

For more on what the AntiChrist Superstar had to say about these tracks and others for inclusion on the follow-up to his 1998 ‘Mechanical Animals’, see this week’s NME (August 19) in London stores today (August 15) and throughout the UK tomorrow.

As previously revealed on nme.com, fans can listen to a soundclip of ‘The Love Song’, on the singer’s official website [url=]www.marilynmanson.net.

Manson has promised to post at least one new unique piece of ‘Holy Wood…’ artwork and/or music on the site each week.

“We’d like this to be a place where the true fans can get what they are looking for without having to find it through unapproved means,” he explained.

Also unveiled in the new posting is the cover of Manson’s soon to be published novel, also called ‘Holy Wood’. It depicts a rifle and two handguns shaped to be a crucifix over a mid-American landscape and a hazy background of human skulls.
