GHOST announce new album Impera out March 11; Share music video for first single “Call Me Little Sunshine”

“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/Concord/Spinefarm

IMPERA is heralded by today’s 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

Watch the official video for Call Me Little Sunshine,”HERE.

The album will also feature Hunter’s Moon,” Ghost’s fourth consecutive US Active Rock #1 radio single, as heard over the end credits of the horror smash Halloween Kills—and manifesting physically in the form of a 7” vinyl single release this Friday, January 21.

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 colorful melodic backdrop making IMPERA a listen like no other — yet unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy WallaceIMPERA consists of the following 12 songs: 

Imperium 
Kaisarion 
Spillways 
Call Me Little Sunshine 
Hunter’s Moon 
Watcher In The Sky

Grift Wood 
Bite Of Passage 
Respite On The Spital Fields
