Ghost Announces EP Covers Called PHANTOMIME And Shares The Music Video For “Jesus He Knows Me”


Ghost just announced their new EP covers called Phantomime, and released a video for their new cover of Genesis’ “Jesus He Knows Me,” which was first released on We Can’t Dance in 1991.

People have been talking about whether or not Ghost will put out new music before their tour in 2023. But just after winning “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the iHeart Radio Music Awards, GHOST announced “Phantomime,” a five-song covers EP originally meant to follow last year’s “Impera,” which topped the charts around the world.

Ghost Announces EP Covers Called PHANTOMIME

“Phantomime” is a diverse and spellbinding look at the band’s musical roots. It is made up of covers of classic and lesser-known songs by TELEVISION, GENESIS, THE STRANGLERS, IRON MAIDEN, and Tina Turner. “Phantomime” gives equal credit to each of these odd bedfellows as influences, while also adding GHOST’s unmistakable sound to them all.

The information that “Phantomime” is about to come out also explains GHOST’s recent “Jesus Is Coming” campaign, which was mentioned in “Chapter 17: Nap Time,” the latest episode of the band’s long-running webisode series, which came out on Good Friday. “Phantomime” comes out on May 18 via Loma Vista Recordings. “Jesus He Knows Me,” GHOST‘s version of GENESIS’s 1992 satire of televangelists, can be streamed and downloaded right now.

This new version of “Jesus He Knows Me” comes with a video directed by Alex Ross Perry that will make the case that one person’s beauty is another’s blasphemy. The end of GHOST’s visual interpretation of “Jesus He Knows Me” is a climactic ritual that you have to see to believe. It rises to the occasion in an unholy manner —and then some.

In February, GHOST announced that they will be touring the United States with special guest AMON AMARTH during the summer of 2023. The tour, put on by Live Nation and FPC Live, begins on August 2 at Concord Pavilion in California and makes stops in a variety of cities like Salt Lake City, Chicago, Cincinnati, Austin, and more before closing off on September 11 at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.

GHOST is continuing its tour in support of its most recent album, “Impera,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 list in its first week of release and sold 70,000 equivalent album units in the United States.

It was their third Top 10 album and fifth album to rank in the Top 40. Klas Hlund produced the whole 12-song album, while Andy Wallace mixed it.

Tobias Forge, frontman of GHOST, wrote the follow-up to 2018’s “Prequelle” with Hlund and Swedish co-writers Salem Al Fakir and Vincent Pontare, whose previous clients include Madonna and Lady Gaga.

In January, GHOST unveiled a new version of “Spillways” on which Joe Elliott of DEF LEPPARD appears as a guest vocalist. The track “Spillways” is included on the March 2022 album Impera.
