Ghost To Release New Album ‘Impera’
“We’re building our empire from the ashes of an old” as GRAMMY-winning Swedish theatrical rock outfit GHOST announces the impending arrival of IMPERA, the band’s fifth full length studio album out March 11 via Loma Vista Recordings.
IMPERA is heralded by the release of its first official single, the sublime and haunting Call Me Little Sunshine, available now across digital platforms – and as a phantasmagoric visual interpretation lensed by iconic director Matt Mahurin and starring Ruby Modine.
The album will also feature Hunter’s Moon, Ghost’s fourth consecutive Active Rock #1 radio single in the US, as heard over the end credits of the horror smash Halloween Kills – and manifesting physically in the form of a 7” vinyl single release out now.
IMPERA finds Ghost transported hundreds of years forward from the 14th century Europe Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018’s Best Rock Album GRAMMY nominee Prequelle. The result is the most ambitious and lyrically incisive entry in the Ghost canon: Over the course of IMPERA’s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made… All in all, the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date is set against a hypnotic and darkly colourful melodic backdrop making IMPERA a listen like no other – yet unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost.
Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace, IMPERA consists of the following 12 songs:
