Ghost Announce New Covers EP “Phantomime”, Share Video For Their Take On Genesis’ “Jesus He Knows Me”


In a payoff to a series of teases which began back in January, gold-certified Swedish metal Ghost have announced the coming arrival of a new five song covers EP titled “Phantomime“. That effort finds Papa and co. putting their own spin on five different tracks, including the lead single “Jesus He Knows Me“, originally by Genesis.

A music video for the latter directed by Alex Ross Perry depicting the disturbing antics of Father Jim DeFroque has just gone up online today, Easter Sunday, to officially herald the EP’s upcoming arrival. That video arrives flanked by additional half hour program from DeFroque, titled ‘Jesus Talk‘.

Phantomime” will be out on May 18th via Loma Vista Recordings and run as follows:

01 – “See No Evil” (Television cover)
02 – “Jesus He Knows Me” (Genesis cover)
03 – “Hanging Around” (The Stranglers cover)
04 – “Phantom Of The Opera” (Iron Maiden cover)
05 – “We Don’t Need Another Hero” (Tina Turner cover)
