Swedish metal giants Ghost are back with their first new song in two years – listen to “Hunter’s Moon” below.
The track was recorded by Ghost for the film Halloween kills, a sequel to 2018 Halloween.
Ryan Turek, vice president of feature film development at Blumhouse Productions who helped produce the film, saw Ghost during their 2018 show series A Pale Tour Named Death and befriended Ghost mastermind. Tobias Forge soon after.
“Hunter’s Moon” is available to stream now and will play in the credits of Halloween kills when the film releases on October 15. The song will also receive a vinyl release on January 21, 2022 with John Carpenter’s âHalloween Kills (Main Title)â opposite B. Pre-order it here.
Ghost’s last album ‘Prequelle’ was released in 2018 and was followed in 2019 by the two-track EP ‘Seven Inches of Satanic Panic’.
The group also announced an American co-title for 2022 with Volbeat. The show series will start on January 25 and end on March 3 – check out the full list of dates here.
Late last year, the band confirmed they were set to head to the studio to start work on album five, with an tentative release date set for late 2021. However, Forge said, “We won’t be releasing an album until we know we’re actually on tour. The album’s release will coincide with the start of a tour.
âThe actual recording will last about six weeks, then there will be two to three weeks of mixing and mastering. So in March the record should be finished, but it won’t be released until after the summer.
Speaking of future Download Festival headliners last year, festival booker Andrew Copping said: “Ghost will definitely be a headliner for years to come.”
