Manson is a master of cover songs, and has a knack for reinterpreting hit tunes from other artists. Some of his early cover tracks - like the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) and Soft Cell's Tainted Love - have gone on to become hits, while others are more rare and have disappeared from public view.
He's covered The Doors' 'The End' and Smashing Pumpkins' 'Eye' too, and is set to record a new version of Soft Cell's 'Personal Jesus' in the coming weeks. And now, he's shared his latest cover track - Gerard McMahon's 'Cry Little Sister' from the cult 1987 film 'The Lost Boys'.
'Cry Little Sister' is an industrial-influenced cover of Gerard McMahon's goth classic, originally performed by the singer for the soundtrack to 1987 cult teen horror film 'The Lost Boys'. The song has been recorded by Manson for the soundtrack to X-Men spinoff 'The New Mutants', which is due out this summer.
The gloomy new video is directed by Bill Yukich and sees Manson blanketed in neon lighting that's 10x more devilish than usual. "A supernatural experience took place whilst making our film for 'CRY LITTLE SISTER'," the singer wrote on Instagram, adding that "as always, @billyukich with his intimidations and enticements."
