Hear MARILYN MANSON's Dark Rendition Of Traditional American Folk Song 'God's Gonna Cut You Down'

Marilyn Manson has lent his signature gravel and intensity to a new version of "God's Gonna Cut You Down", the classic American folk song. Manson reunited with director Tim Mattia for the cinematic black-and-white video filmed in Joshua Tree, California. Check it out below.

"God's Gonna Cut You Down" was recorded with producer Tyler Bates, with whom the shock rocker collaborated on his last two records, 2015's "The Pale Emperor" and 2017's "Heaven Upside Down".

The song is available to pre-order now on limited-pressing picture disc featuring one of Manson's original watercolor paintings.

Over the years, "God's Gonna Cut You Down" has been recorded by numerous artists representing a variety of genres. The lyrics are a warning to sinners that no matter how hard they try, they will not avoid God's judgment.

Marilyn Manson has spent the last few months collaborating with country rocker Shooter Jennings on his new studio album, tentatively due in early 2020. Manson's guitarist Paul Wiley will also appear on the disc, as will his new drummer, Brandon Pertzborn (of BLACK FLAG, DOYLE and HO99O9).

Manson and Jennings previously teamed up in 2016 to record a cover version of "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" for Jennings's "Countach (For Giorgio)" LP, a covers collection featuring songs by electronic-music pioneer Giorgio Moroder.
