Ghost stream Spillways featuring Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott

Ghost is streaming a lyric video for a new version of the “Impera” single, "Spillways", featuring Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott.

"Impera was my favorite rock album of 2022,” says Elliott. “I found out along the way that Tobias is a bit of a fan of DL, so I guess it was inevitable we’d both find out about each other! Once we’d been introduced to the idea of working together it just snowballed organically and I’m thrilled that I got to sing on what is my favorite song from that album!”

Ahead of its release, Ghost previewed the pair’s collaboration in Chapter 15 of their ongoing video series; entitled “Meanwhile In Dublin”, the episode begins with Elliott tasked with singing along with the fourth single from “Impera” in a pub on karaoke night as part of a “Pope crawl.”

“Impera” delivered a career high for Ghost when it debuted at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release last spring; the project won the inaugural Favorite Rock Album category at the 2022 American Music Awards event in Los Angeles, CA last November.

Ghost will launch a spring 2023 European tour in France next May 21, while Def Leppard will begin their global tour with Motley Crue next month with a pair of shows in Atlantic City, NJ.
