Swedish occult rockers GHOST filmed a video for an as-yet-undisclosed new song earlier today (Sunday, May 3) in the Los Angeles area.
According to Sweden Rock Magazine, GHOST will release its third album in late summer/early fall. The follow-up to 2013’s “Infestissumam” was helmed by Klas Åhlund, a prolific songwriter, producer and guitarist who is also a member of the Swedish rock bandTEDDYBEARS. As a songwriter and producer, Klas has previously worked with such artists as Katy Perry, Kesha, Taio Cruz, Britney Spears and Madonna. Songtitles set to appear on the GHOST CD include “From The Pinnacle To The Pit”, “Cirice”, “Majesty”, “Devil Church” and “He Is”.
A new GHOST single will be released before the band’s June 4 appearance at this year’sSweden Rock Festival, which will also serve as the group’s live debut with “new” singerPapa Emeritus III, the three-month-younger brother of GHOST‘s previous frontman, Papa Emeritus II (pictured).
The latest issue of Sweden Rock Magazine marked GHOST‘s final photo session with Papa Emeritus II before he was “fired” and succeeded by Papa Emeritus III.
GHOST is planning to return to the studio before the summer to record several cover songs, including one by Leonard Cohen and another by the ’80s Swedish band IMPERIET.
