Marilyn Manson has shared a blistering new cover of Ministry's "Stigmata." His crushing take on the classic The Land of Rape and Honey song was concieved in concert with composer Tyler Bates (Watchmen, 300, Guardians of the Galaxy), who also collaborated with Manson on his critically acclaimed last album, The Pale Emperor. It is one of three Eighties covers featured on the soundtrack to David Leitch's upcoming spy thriller Atomic Blonde, starring Charlize Theron. (Industrial band HEALTH and electro-pop duo Kaleida took on New Order's "Blue Monday" and Nena's "99 Luftballons," respectively, for the 16-track collection.) The Atomic Blonde soundtrack arrives the same day the film hits theaters (July 28), via Back Lot Music. You can stream Manson's "Stigmata" cover below (as well as some of the shock rocker's other best covers), and check out a trailer for the film. Pre-orders for the soundtrack are available here.
Manson's Ministry cover arrives amidst an uptick in activity for both artists. The former is gearing up to release his 10th album, Heaven Upside Down, later this year, and recently announced a massive fall North American tour. Meanwhile, Ministry just tapped Death Grips to support them on a tour behind their new album, AmeriKKKant, which is expected sometime this fall.
