The Dave Grohl-produced covers EP by Swedish metallers Ghost BC is streaming online – listen to it below.

Earlier this year, the band's cover of Abba's 'I'm A Marionette', featuring Grohl on drums, was unveiled. Now the whole EP, titled 'If You Have Ghost' is available to listen to online. It will get an official release next week via Loma Vista Recordings.

Speaking to The Quietus about working with Grohl on the EP, the band's frontman Papa Emeritus II said: "The whole EP was produced by Dave Grohl, and I have to say that his work ethic is very high; he brought lots of energy to the studio, and his approach to recording worked well with our own philosophy. He was very picky, he wanted really good takes, and he was a stickler for tuning."

He added: "For a musician, he’s a great partner, because he’s a highly successful musician himself – and a multi-instrumentalist, of course, so he can relate to every instrument being played. He knows what he’s talking about. Plus, he played drums on two songs – ‘I’m A Marionette’ and ‘Waiting For The Night’ – and the rhythm guitar parts on ‘If You Have Ghosts’ are Dave, too…"

'If You Have Ghost' takes its name from the opening track, Roky Erickson’s 'If You Have Ghosts”. The band also take on Army Of Lovers’ 'Crucified' and Depeche Mode’s 'Waiting For The Night'. There’s also a live version of their own track 'Secular Haze'.

'If You Have Ghost' tracklisting:

'If You Have Ghosts'
'I'm A Marionette'
'Crucified'
'Waiting For The Night'
'Secular Haze' (Live at Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn)
