Manson covers Bowie

Marilyn Manson has teamed up with Shooter Jennings for a cover of David Bowie track Cat People (Putting Out Fire).

The track appears on Jennings’ upcoming album Countach (For Giorgio), which pays tribute to Bowie and electronic musician Giorgio Moroder.

Jennings tells Rolling Stone: “I invited Marilyn to a party, and I said, ‘You know Cat People? You’d sound awesome doing it.’ He was like, ‘I sing that song every night before I go on stage.’”

Marilyn Manson is scheduled to tour North America with Slipknot and Of Mice and Men. Dates and venues are yet to be confirmed.

Bowie died last month, aged 69, after a cancer battle.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history. He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
