Ghost Premiere New Song “Hunter’s Moon”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Ghost have been teasin’ new shit, and new shit they have delivered.

Papa Emeritus Whatever Roman Numeral We’re Up To and the Nameless Ghouls have released a new song, “Hunter’s Moon.” It will appear in the upcoming movie Halloween Kills, which makes it kinda extra-incredible that they were able to keep it a secret this long.

If you were expecting Ghost to strike out in bold new musical directions this go ’round, well, uh… you’re gonna be bummed. For everyone who just wants Ghost to sound like Ghost — i.e., awesome proto-metal from the ’70s — this is gonna be another slam dunk.

Although… having said that… the section that starts around the 1:35 mark might be the heaviest thing Ghost have done to date.

As a bonus, the lyrics are chock full of references to Halloween.

Listen to the track below. A special limited edition orange 7″, featuring John Carpenter’s theme from Halloween Kills as the b-side, is available for pre-order here. It’s expected to ship in January.

Halloween Kills is in theaters and streaming on Peacock October 15.
