Marilyn Manson has thrown out a line to onetime mentor Trent Reznor and even raised the possibility of working together again.
Though Reznor produced Manson’s first album, 1994’s Portrait Of An American Family, and co-produced the breakthrough Antichrist Superstar, the two had a falling out and were been estranged for years. But Manson revealed to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 that he and Reznor “sort of mended ways after a long time” through mutual friends, and that he would “absolutely” consider working together again.
“We’ve been speaking about things,” Manson reported. “I don’t know what will happen. I would love to…All of the past, any sort of squabbles or arguments or disagreements, that shit just went away.”
For now, however, Manson is focused on his upcoming album Heaven Upside Down, which comes out October 6. He begins a European tour on November 14 in Sweden, wrapping up December 9 in London.
