Nameless Ghoul says Ghost’s fall EP will feature covers

Posted by on May 26, 2016



Want to know what the next Ghost album is going to sound like, you’ll be getting a pretty good idea of it from their next EP coming later this year. However, don’t necessarily expect original music on it. Like 2013’s If You Have Ghost EP, which featured covers of songs by Roky Erikson, Depeche Mode, ABBA and Army of Lovers, the new EP will consist of primarily covers. In an interview with Oklahoma City radio station KATT when the band played there, the Ghoul gives some details about the EP. It will be the last music with “current lead singer” Papa Emeritus III. Here’s what he says about what you hear on the EP might influence the sound of the band’s next album:

“If you hear the EP, don’t think that, ‘Oh, the next album is gonna sound exactly like this,’ but that is a good way for us to sneak in elements that are, like, you might hear a synth sound like this on the next record, but not as evident. So where “If You Have Ghosts” was definitely a new dimension of pop-rock that we hadn’t really done before. I mean, it’s sort of closer to R.E.M. than it is Black Sabbath. We’re not doing the same thing this time, but we’re doing something else in order to get people to feel comfortable with [the direction of the next album].”

Let’s hope that the new EP is more Black Sabbath than R.E.M. Tom Dalgety (Killing Joke, Royal Blood) produced the new EP, so you can forget about any Dave Grohl rumors. The Ghoul also says that a Fall tour is coming up that will find a new stage show and the band playing in larger venues. Listen to the podcast interview below:
