Coming upon the unveiling of Papa Emeritus IV, Grammy Award-winning band Ghost just unveiled a new clip entitled “The Summoning VII: Are You Ready” in the wake of a 41-city headlining U.S. tour.
Ghost’s “Popestar” EP was released on September 16th by Loma Vista Recordings and debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts, selling over 21,000 copies in its first week. The release was also the first EP to top the Top Rock Albums chart in its 10-year history.
The surprise five-track offering features leading psalm “Square Hammer” and also contains covers of selections by Echo and the Bunnymen, Simian Mobile Disco, Eurythmics, and Imperiet. “Popestar” was recorded by Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls in Linköping, Sweden and produced by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Royal Blood, Opeth).
