Ghost album Prequelle earns two Grammy Awards nominations

Ghost have received a pair of nominations for the 61st Grammy Awards for music from their latest record, “Prequelle.”

The Swedish rockers’ fourth studio set was named a contender for Best Rock Album alongside releases by Alice In Chains (“Rainier Fog”), Fall Out Boy (“Mania”), Greta Van Fleet (“From The Fires”) and Weezer (“Pacific Daydream”).

The 2018 record was launched with the anthemic lead track, “Rats”, which picked up a songwriter’s award nomination in the Best Rock Song category, where it will compete against tunes by Greta Van Fleet (“Black Smoke Rising”), Twenty One Pilots (“Jumpsuit”), Bring Me The Horizon (“Mantra”) and St. Vincent (“Masseduction”).

The 61st annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on the CBS-TV Network from the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, February 10 at 8pm ET.

Ghost recorded “Prequelle” with producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Opeth) at Artery Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.

The project debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 to deliver the group their highest-charting US album and third US Top 10, following two No. 6 efforts: 2015’s “Meliora” and the 2016 EP “Popestar.”

Ghost will wrap up a fall tour of North America at the Barclays Center in New York on December 15 before launching a European run in February.
