Ghost have been parceling out new music from their forthcoming third album, Meliora, for the past month and a half or so, and with the album due out in just two weeks, they’ve unleashed what might be the most straight-ahead rock song of their career. “Majesty” has a riff that AC/DC could have written, but is padded out with a Hammond organ that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Deep Purple album. It’s as monstrous and gargantuan a riff as the King Kong-inspired artwork for the single.
Meliora is out on August 21 on Loma Vista. You can preorder it here.
