During a recent interview with Guitar.com, Ghost’s Tobias Forge revealed that he already has plans for the band’s next album. The frontman says he already knows how the effort will sound and that he even has a title for it.
Forge said the following when asked if he has a final destination in mind for Ghost:
“We’re still in the position where a new record [will inform] the overall impression of the band. If they didn’t want to, the Rolling Stones wouldn’t have released a new record in the last 50 years. People would still worship them. We’re still at a point where the record means something and that’s not going to be forever. At some point, you’ll turn into a nostalgia band and that’s fine.
Right now, we have a plan up until 2025. I already know what I want to do, what I want to make and how I want the next record to sound. I know the title of the next record. I know what the cover’s gonna be. I know what we’re gonna change and what we’re gonna do live. I have a plan but it’s not the endgame.”
For now, Ghost are focusing on their latest album “Impera.” In a separate interview with Viktor Wilt of Idaho’s KCVI, Forge revealed that the group are working on a music video trilogy for that record. He said the following about those plans after being asked if he has chosen the next single from the effort [via Blabbermouth]:
“Short answer: yes. I just don’t know exactly… Sometimes there’s a difference between — obviously, you in radio know that — the songs that we release as singles and the ones that are singles that we push with a video and all that stuff. Right now I know what we’re hoping to do a little bit later in the year. Long story short, we’re making sort of a trilogy of videos for ‘Call Me Little Sunshine’, ‘Twenties’ [and] ‘Watcher In The Sky’. And that is sort of in the making. So it might be that that is sort of a different piece; that might be a different thing that comes out sort of separate to a radio campaign, whereas obviously we have our eye on what we’re gonna do towards the fall in terms of what song we’re making a video for right now and so forth.”
