It’s been over two years since Ghost’s last album, Prequelle, graced our years, and one year since we got their impressively retro “Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic” double single. But Ghost fans don’t have to wait long for new music! According to a new interview frontman Tobias Forge (that is, Papa Emeritus / Cardinal Copia) did with VK in Swedish, Ghost will put out their fifth studio album this winter.
At this point, we don’t know too much about the album. It was planned to come out in early 2021, with a tour follow in March. The tour has been postponed to next autumn – no surprises there; let’s just hope the pandemic is over by then. But the new album, apparently, is still on schedule for a winter 2021 release.
Tobias didn’t say what themes the album will focus in on, but he did say what it will not be about:
I have already made a record about God’s wrath and doomsday, even if Prequelle was not about just infection from a medical perspective. But I have a feeling that there will be plenty of doomsday and quarantine-confirming records in the future, and I think I might not participate in it.
Ghost’s last album, Prequelle, came out in June 2018. It launched the singles “Rats,” “Dance Macabre,” and “Faith,” not to mention extensive touring. In September 2019, Ghost put out their “Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic” single, featuring two tracks: “Kiss The Go-Goat” and “Mary On A Cross.”
We can’t wait to hear Ghost’s new album this winter! Stay tuned for news about singles, the album title, tracklisting, and a locked down release date. We’re sure to have exciting details in the coming months. As always, keep checking back here for all the latest Ghost news.
