Marilyn Manson Planning Acoustic Material with Korn’s Jonathan Davis

The Pale Emperor promises "southern-sounding" acoustic blues

Marilyn Manson may be about to head out on tour with the Smashing Pumpkins, but in a Reddit AMA last week he let word slip that he has some stuff in the pipeline with a ’90s icon of another sort. As Blabbermouth points out, Manson responded to a query about potential acoustic material with news that there was indeed some in progress, and that Korn’s Jonathan Davis might be in tow.

“As a matter of fact, that’s [. . .] the style of music that I’m working on right now,” he confirmed. “Some of it will be with Jonathan Davis, I think. Because he has plans of doing something similar. Something that might even cross over the boundaries of being more Southern-sounding.”

He went on to describe the material as more “acoustic and blues” which should be an interesting look for the Pale Emperor. In another response, Manson also said that “there’s a strong possibility of doing something with Billy Corgan, while we’re out on the road together,” so that’d be exciting if that ends up happening.
