Ghost’s New Album Actually Won’t Be Arriving Until Later In 2021


Chalk it up to being lost in translation, but it appears that Ghost‘s next studio album won’t see a release this winter after all. In this interview with the band’s mastermind Tobias Forge that was posted earlier this month, it was stated (in Swedish) ‘the idea was that Ghost would hit the road again in March next year. Those plans have been postponed until the autumn of 2021, but a new album will be released this winter.’

However a new interview recently conducted with Forge by Sweden Rock Magazine finds Forge revealing that the album has yet to be recorded and won’t arrive until sometime in the second half of 2021. Forge stated:

“The idea is for the album to be recorded in January. 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.

As it looks now, knock on wood, we will then go on tour. 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. Of course, we could announce an album release date and then, for some reason, it might not be possible to tour, but that’s a whole other matter.”
