Swedish metal giants Ghost have returned with their first new song in two years – listen to ‘Hunter’s Moon’ below.
Ryan Turek, Vice President of Feature Film Development at Blumhouse Productions who helped produce the film, saw Ghost on their 2018 A Pale Tour Named Death run of shows and struck up a friendship with Ghost mastermind Tobias Forge soon after.
‘Hunter’s Moon’ is available to stream now and will play over the credits to Halloween Kills when the film is released October 15. The song will also receive a vinyl release on January 21, 2022 with John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween Kills (Main Title)’ as the b-side. Pre-order it here.
Ghost’s last album ‘Prequelle’ was released in 2018 and was followed up in 2019 by the two-track EP ‘Seven Inches of Satanic Panic’.
Late last year, the band confirmed they were about to head into the studio to start work on album five, with a tentative release date set for late 2021. However Forge said: “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.”
“The actual recording will last around six weeks and then there’s 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.”
