Marilyn Manson has revealed what appears to be a clip from a video for the song “Tattooed in Reverse” that features Courtney Love.
He tweeted a brief scene that shows him in a wheelchair, being pushed through a doorway by the Hole frontwoman, who’s dressed as a nurse. “Who allowed Courtney Love to be my nurse?” he wrote in the accompanying comment. “Oh shit … I did.”
“Tattooed in Reverse” appears on Manson’s most recent album Heaven Upside Down, which was released in October. It had originally been called SAY10, but Manson changed plans following a late round of songwriting.
“It became a record that didn’t take as long as it seemed like it did,” he told Loudwire. “I think the record came out when I intended it to. I thought it was finished back in February, but it would not have had ‘Revelation #12,’ ‘Heaven Upside Down’ or ‘Saturnalia.’ Those are the three of the most key songs that really tell the story. The lyrics were all written, but I had not found a home for them. Those three songs, they take place as if it were a film. The three acts — it’s the opening, it’s the middle and then it’s the ending.”
The video for “Tattooed in Reverse” will supposedly be released soon.
