Marilyn Manson & Korn's Jonathan Davis Are Collaborating: What's It Gonna Sound Like?
Marilyn Manson recently did a Reddit AMA, where he hinted at what he'll be up to after his summer tour with the Smashing Pumpkins wraps. Apparently, the Pale Emperor has been working on some acoustic songs with Korn frontman Jonathan Davis.
When asked about acoustic music, Manson replied, "As a matter of fact, that's some of the plans, of the style of music that I'm working on right now."
To elaborate, he mentioned that he and the Korn singer are currently on the same creative wavelength. "Some of it will be with Jonathan Davis, I think… Something that might even cross over the boundaries of being more Southern-sounding."
What might that sound like? He linked it back to some earlier work:
"It is strange, when I think about it -- I did record Smells Like Children in Mississippi, which is where the blues came from. So there might be something more acoustic and blues in my future. I like the rawness of it. I definitely like the rawness."
Previously, Manson collaborated with Davis on "Redeemer," a track from the 2002 film Queen of the Damned's official soundtrack.
But this isn't the only team-up on Manson's horizon: "There's a strong possibility of doing something with Billy Corgan, while we're out on the road together," he mused.
The tour with the Pumpkins (who are back with original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin) kicks off July 7 in Concord, Calif.
