Marilyn Manson's upcoming Born Villain LP will feature a guest appearance by his friend Johnny Depp, who collaborates with the macabre rocker on a cover of Carly Simon's "You're So Vain." The album, due May 1st, will be released on Manson's own Hell, Etc. label in conjunction with Cooking Vinyl/Downtown Records. 

Manson and Depp have been mutual admirers for years, with the performer joining the actor as his "date" at the Disneyland premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Manson's headlining appearance at the Golden Gods Awards on April 11th in Los Angeles, his first U.S. gig in three years, will be followed by a tour in support of the new album.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
