Ghost plot new album sessions

Ghost leader Tobias Forge has revealed that the Swedish band is actively working on a follow-up to their 2018 album, “Prequelle.”

“The plan now is that I will be here and write for another two months, until Christmas,” the singer tells Sweden Rock Magazine. “The idea is that the album will then be recorded in January. It takes about six weeks to record and then it is two to three weeks of mixing and mastering. So sometime in March, the record should be finished, but it won't be released until after the summer. As it looks now, knock on wood, we will then go on tour after that.

“We won't release an album until we know that we are actually going on tour. The album release will coincide with the start of a tour. Of course, we could announce an album release date and then, for some reason, it might not be possible to tour, but that's a whole other matter."

Forge’s full interview will appear in the November 2020 issue of Sweden Rock Magazine.

Recorded with producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Opeth) at Artery Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, “Prequelle” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

Ghost unveiled a new frontman during the final show of their Prequelle world tour in Mexico City on March 3, as Forge’s latest character, Cardinal Copia, has morphed into Papa Emeritus IV.
