Ghost’s Tobias Forge Says He Is Already “Thinking About Album No. 5”

Ghost’s Tobias Forge, who performs as Papa Emeritus and dresses as a Nameless Ghoul for interviews, recently talked with the Albuquerque Journal about the band’s upcoming fourth album. During the chat, he also revealed that he is already thinking ahead about ideas for their fifth album as well.


Forge said the following:

“I usually write a lot. I don’t make an album and don’t write for two years and then end up with a blank paper starting over.”

“I constantly work with material that could be two years old, five years old, ten years old, as well as new things. It’s a pick and mix of a lot of different ideas and stuff laying around, a lot of new stuff being added to the pile. Yeah, it’s a constant thinking ahead, and now, already now, I’m thinking about album No. 5, because there are songs coming out now or coming up being written that I feel like that won’t fit into the new album, so I’ll put that one on to the next one instead.”

He also said the following about Ghost’s next album:

“Having in mind that the previous record was about the absence of God or the absence of deities, this new one is going to be about the return of God. You know God’s wrath cast upon the suffering humans, so it will be a little bit more biblical in that sense, which in turn makes it darker, a little bit more apocalyptic, I think. That’s basically what I can tell you about it right now.”
