The star lays down some beats on new album 'The Golden Age Of Grotesque'...

MARILYN MANSON is mixing his new album.

Manson has been recording his new album, ‘The Golden Age Of Grotesque’, for much of this year.

Manson, writing on his official website,, said that recording is now complete and he has even played drums on one song.

He wrote: “Today I learned how to not play the saxophone. I even drummed on the title track of the album. I recorded Pogo, John5 and Skold chanting two-letter words.

“We are moving 13 songs to a mix studio this week to make our final descent, So please raise your seatbacks and tray tables.”

The album is scheduled for release later this year.
