Stream ‘If You Have Ghosts’ from Ghost’s Upcoming E.P.
Ghost aren’t letting the grass grow under their feet in between releases. It’s only been six months since the release of the masterful Infestissumam and now they’re back with a new EP, If You Have Ghost, produced by the biggest rock star on the planet himself, Dave Grohl.
The EP consists of mostly covers with a live version of ‘Secular Haze’ thrown in for good measure. Originally recorded by Roky Erickson, ‘If You Have Ghosts’ fits in with the more accessible material from Infestissumam and like it or not, that appears to be the road Ghost are heading down. Not that I have a problem with radio-friendly tunes (it would be weird if a Rock DJ did) it’s just that I prefer the more Blue Oyster Cult, Mercyful Fate sounding stuff from their debut album, Opus Eponymous.
The EP will also include their version of Depeche Mode’s ‘Waiting for the Night’, ABBA’s ‘I’m a Marionette’ (also on the deluxe edition of Infestissumam), and Army of Lovers’ ‘Crucified’.
If You Have Ghost drops November 19 on Loma Vista Records. Pre-order that bad boy right here.
