Marilyn Manson Seems to Hint at Summer Release for ‘Say10′ LP
Marilyn Manson may have just given fans a clue regarding the release date for his upcoming Say10 album.
As NME notes, earlier rumors suggested the set was due for a Feb. 14 release, but with that date obviously come and gone, Manson's fans have only been able to wait for word — and they may have gotten it in the form of an Instagram post whose cryptic caption could point to Say10's arrival.
By writing "6:19. The time has come," Manson could be referring to any number of other things; as NME's report points out, June 19 falls on a Monday, and since the industry shifted its schedule in 2015, new albums traditionally arrive on Fridays. Of course, that hasn't stopped other artists from releasing their music on different days, so Say10 could be headed for a June 19 arrival — or the caption could mean something else entirely.
Loudwire offers a number of potential interpretations, including a reference to a lyric from the Manson track "If I Was Your Vampire" or even a nod to a couple of Bible verses. Whenever it arrives, the veteran rocker promises the album's contents will be "the last thing" longtime fans expect.
"I’m a little over-anxious to release it," Manson admitted last fall. "It was done very quickly, but it’s by far the most thematic and over-complicated thing that I’ve done. In a way, it’s deceptively delightful to strangers. It’s like the old saying that the devil’s greatest secret is that people don’t believe he exists."
While waiting for official news of Say10's arrival, fans can whet their appetites with the first video teaser for the LP, posted last November.
