According to HardDriveRadio.com, there’s an all new Ghost album due to make landfall this year. To be more specific, it’s rumored to drop on August 21st with the title “Meliora” (which translates to “Better” in Latin). Here’s a quote from the show in regards to this.
Yesterday I heard the forthcoming new single from Ghost B.C. called “Cirice” from their new album, Meliora. Produced by Klas Ahlund, whose producing/writing credits include Madonna, Katy Perry, Swedish House Mafia, and mixed by Andy Wallace, the album will be released August 21. The album title is Latin for “better” and “Cirice” refers to church. As you know, the band’s identities are never revealed. Their front man, soon to be a new Papa Emeritus (now III), dresses like a pope and the “Nameless Ghouls” round out the musicians. I am surprised at the news of the replacement of Papa Emeritus II. I must get the low down on that. I did hear from a source close to the band this new album “kicks ass.” Is the world ready for a new Ghost B.C.? I do know the band will be in NYC the same time Pope Francis is here this September, which is also when their tour will kick off. Rumor has it that a few years back, our pal Dave Grohl (who produced an EP of cover songs for the band called If You Have Ghost) performed with the band as a Nameless Ghoul.
Stay tuned for more. And for now, let there be music!
