Ghost recently released a new song, “Hunter’s Moon,” as part of the soundtrack for the movie Halloween Kills.
Frontman Tobias Forge recently said the band planned to be in the studio in late 2020 and on into early 2021. Speaking with radio station KLAQ, Forge explained that the album is about the fall of empires:
“The album that I have been working on, I came up with that concept years ago. We played in Seattle in 2013, 2014 — something like that — we played at Showbox At The Market.
“I remember that day I came up with the idea for this record, this upcoming record. Because I got a book called ‘The Rule Of Empires’. So, basically, I wanted to make a record about the rise and ultimately the unescapable fails and falls of empires. And an idea like that can take — at least me — quite far.
“So once you get that idea of, like, ‘Oh, now I know what the pile is gonna look like. I know now what not to put in there.’ And it was the same thing with ‘Prequelle’; it was gonna be about the great death, a medieval, primordial threat of annihilation which was, I guess I wouldn’t say carnal but maybe a tiny tad more spiritual and philosophical death, with the ever presence of actual termination, whereas this record about the empires was gonna be a little bit more practical, I guess; a little bit more, I don’t wanna say political. So it wasn’t really hard to be inspired by the last couple of years.”
