Ghost Announce New Album, Impera and First Single, “Call Me Little Sunshine”

Ghost – Impera

After months of teasing, Ghost have finally announced the name of their new album — Impera — and dropped its first official single, “Call Me Little Sunshine.”

A new song called “Hunter’s Moon” arrived this past fall as part of the Halloween Kills soundtrack. That track will also be included on Impera, but “Call Me Little Sunshine” serves as the official album campaign launch.

Swedish pop producer and songwriter Klas Åhlund (Robyn, Katy Perry, Charli XCX, etc.), who worked with Ghost on the entire Meliora album as well as “Dance Macabre” from Prequelle, is back on board for Impera.

Ghost leader and frontman Tobias Forge previously explained that the band’s new album is themed around the fall of empires. We also now know that Impera exists hundreds of years after the Black Plague era of Prequelle and focuses on “themes of isolation and demigod worship, as well as colonization of both space and mind,” according to press copy.

The Impera tracklist:

  1. Imperium 
  2. Kaisarion 
  3. Spillways 
  4. Call Me Little Sunshine 
  5. Hunter’s Moon 
  6. Watcher In The Sky 
  7. Dominion 
  8. Twenties 
  9. Darkness At The Heart Of My Love
  10. Grift Wood 
  11. Bite Of Passage 
  12. Respite On The Spital Fields 

Listen to “Call Me Little Sunshine” below. Impera comes out on March 11 via Loma Vista Recordings; pre-order here.
