Ghost stream Genesis track from new covers EP Phantomime

Ghost is streaming a version of the 1991 Genesis track, “Jesus He Knows Me”, as the lead single from the newly-announced forthcoming covers EP “Phantomime.”

Originally issued as the third single from Genesis’ “We Can’t Dance” album, the 2023 version sees Ghost update the song for the five-track project alongside tunes recorded by Iron Maiden, Tina Turner, The Stranglers and Television.

Due May 18, the “Phantomime” release will coincide with Ghost’s first live dates of the year, beginning with a May/June European run of festival and headline dates including appearances at Primavera Sound 2023 where the band will share a bill with Blur, Depeche Mode, Halsey and Kendrick Lamar, among others, and Sweden Rock Festival 2023, where Ghost will be one of four headliners alongside Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and Motley Crue.

Ghost will then return to North America for its Re-Imperatour U.S.A. 2023 summer tour with special guest Amon Amarth; the series kicks off August 2 in Concord, CA, with stops in more than two dozen cities before its two-night finale the Kia Forum in Los Angeles on September 11 and – recently added by popular demand – September 12.

“Phantomime” follows Ghost’s 2022 album, “Impera”, which delivered a career high for the band 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.
