Grind in a ‘Pile of Moolah’ With Ghost’s New Song ‘Twenties’

"Twenties," the third single from Ghost 's forthcoming new album,  Impera , has just been released.

The track is one that mastermind Tobias Forge had described in an interview with Kerrang! as, "Slayer meets some sort of Missy Elliott thing." Fans can hash out that debate on their own, but what can be said in absolute terms is that the Ghost visionary has again widened the parameter's of the bands sound with a nervous energy in play — doom-laden and teetering between orchestral bombast and spooky minimalism.

Listen to the newest  Impera offering further down the page and read the lyrics, which mention " grinding in a pile of moolah " and " Ivy League dopes ," in what appears to be a message rooted in some topical themes, especially considering that we already know one other new song, "Grift Wood," is about former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

Speaking about the new record's concept last fall, Forge told KLAQ , "The album that I have been working on, I came up with that concept years ago. We played in Seattle in 2013, 2014 — something like that — we played at Showbox At The Market. I remember that day I came up with the idea for this record, this upcoming record. Because I got a book called 'The Rule of Empires.' So, basically, I wanted to make a record about the rise and ultimately the unescapable fails and falls of empires."

"An idea like that can take — at least me — quite far," he continued, "So once you get that idea of, like, 'Oh, now I know what the pile is gonna look like. I know now what not to put in there.' And it was the same thing with Prequelle ; it was gonna be about the great death, a medieval, primordial threat of annihilation which was, I guess I wouldn't say carnal but maybe a tiny tad more spiritual and philosophical death, with the ever presence of actual termination, whereas this record about the empires was gonna be a little bit more practical, I guess; a little bit more, I don't wanna say political. So it wasn't really hard to be inspired by the last couple of years."

Impera will be released on March 11 and pre-orders can be placed here .

GHOST: “Twenties” New Single and Lyric Video Live Now

March 4, 2022 Celtic Bob Hard Rock 0

ghost twenties music video

“Tell Them All… It Is Time”…

“Twenties” is the latest advance offering from IMPERA, the imminent fifth album from GRAMMY-winning Swedish theatrical rock outfit GHOST, heralding its arrival March 11 via Loma Vista Recordings.

With its messianic promises of reigns of pennies and piles of moolah set to an appropriately manic musical backdrop, the unrelenting and propulsive “Twenties” stands in stark contrast to its Pre-IMPERA predecessor, the eerily hypnotic “Call Me Little Sunshine.” In fact, the apocalyptically prophetic vibe of “Twenties” —  particularly its lyrical relevance to historical events unfolding on the world stage (however incidental) — render the song utterly unique in the Ghost canon.

The release of “Twenties” is accompanied by an Apple Music New Music Daily exclusive interview with Ghost’s Tobias Forge, welcoming Apple’s Zane Lowe into the world of IMPERA. For more information, go to found.ee/Ghost_ZaneLowe

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace — and also featuring the Active Rock #1 radio single “Hunter’s Moon” — IMPERA finds Ghost transported literally centuries forward from the Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018 Best Rock Album GRAMMY nominee Prequelle. The result is the most ambitious and lyrically incisive entry in the Ghost canon: Over the course of IMPERA’s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made… All in all, the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date is set against a hypnotic and darkly colorful melodic backdrop making IMPERA a listen like no other — yet unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost.

“Twenties” drops just as Ghost concludes a 26-date U.S. arena tour March 3 at the Honda Center in Anaheim CA. Co-headlined by Volbeat with support from Twin Temple, the Pre-IMPERA Tour played nightly to rapturous crowds and critical acclaim alike, including:

“A Ghost concert is the aural equivalent of an amusement park visit.”—BRAVE WORDS

“Papa’s swagger level was on 100 while strutting across the stage… One of the most interesting aspects of Ghost and to Forge as Papa is the juxtaposition of what you’re seeing versus what you’re hearing.”—CONSEQUENCE

“Ghost demonstrated why it is hailed as today’s leading new heavy-metal band.”—LINCOLN JOURNAL STAR

“Ghost’s band of ghouls has never sounded tighter… The band’s production is spectacular and Tobias Forge continues to creep up the list of greatest modern-day frontmen.”—LOUDWIRE

“Triumphant… Papa Emeritus IV sashayed through an epic 16-song set”—REVOLVER

“Forge and the Nameless Ghouls put a lot of care and thought into their craft, and because of it, they delivered one of the most spectacular shows I have seen in awhile last night.”—TWIN CITIES MEDIA

“Every time they tour, Ghost’s stage show gets bigger and better.”—WORCESTER TELEGRAM

Ghost - Twenties (Official Lyric Video)

The release of “Twenties” is accompanied by an Apple Music New Music Daily exclusive interview with Ghost’s Tobias Forge, welcoming Apple’s Zane Lowe into the world of Impera .

‘Permanent Waves’: Rush Rise On A New Tide Of International Acclaim

The six degrees of dave grohl, the best 90s music: 200+ songs from alternative, hip-hop, and more.

Explaining the album to Lowe, Forge had this to say: “The idea was to paint a picture of an empire, warts and all, and shine a light onto the sort of self-destruction mechanisms within the empire that are sort of per default in there to sort of reassure its ultimate demise. Somehow they have always built each empire that way. It’s painfully clear to us as we talk.

“Years ago, when, when I got the idea that I wanted to make a record about empires, I also had the idea that I wanted to make a record about the plague. Those two concepts felt diametrically opposed to me in a way, because the plague had more of individual, carnal, divine aspect of the annihilation. Whereas the imperial record that I referred to in my head had more of like a structural society, mechanical annihilation. So those two concepts felt different from each other.”

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace — and also featuring the Active Rock No.1 radio single “Hunter’s Moon” — a href=”https://www.udiscovermusic.com/news/ghost-new-album-impera/”> Impera finds Ghost transported literally centuries forward from the Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018 Best Rock Album GRAMMY nominee Prequelle .

Listen to Ghost’s thrashy new reggaeton-inspired single, ‘Twenties’

Taken off their upcoming album, ‘Impera’

Ghost share new song, 'Twenties'

Ghost have unveiled, ‘Twenties’, the latest cut off their upcoming album, ‘Impera’.

  • READ MORE: Korn: “On this record, we have grown emotionally. Music is healing to all of us”

Released on Thursday (March 3), the single offers listeners a new look into the Swedish metal outfit’s growth, as they meld together chugging guitar riffs with a reggaeton beat and dramatic orchestral instruments.

Listen to ‘Twenties’ below.

In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Ghost founder and vocalist Tobias Forge shared that the song was inspired by a Brazilian performance that he had seen on TV years ago that featured aggressive vocals over a reggaeton melody.

“It was one of the most musically aggressive things I’ve ever seen. I come from death metal, black metal, punk, where we’re obviously thriving on the idea of being violent – but this was sort of like a party,” Forge explained.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Band Ghost (@thebandghost)

“Of course, I had heard that rhythm before, but I thought ‘That sounds like a fun way to write an aggressive song that I’ve never really heard’”.

‘Twenties’ serves as the third official preview of the band’s upcoming fifth album, ‘Impera’, which is due to release on March 11. The fresh single follows ‘Hunter’s Moon’ , which was released in October alongside the Halloween Kills soundtrack.

Ghost officially announced ‘Impera’ in January, and released the hopeful single ‘Call Me Little Sunshine’ .

The band have also been kicking off their ongoing US tour with the album’s opening number, ‘Kaisarion’ , though it has yet to release on streaming platforms.

Ghost are set to embark on a tour of the UK and Europe in April and May in support of the upcoming record. The tour will see performances in Manchester, London, Prague, Paris and more. Check out the complete list of tour dates here .

Background and Release [ ]

Tobias Forge has described the song's lyrical contents as "super-aggressive" and "very hostile". He continues: “It’s still meant as a pep-talk, but it’s basically demeaning and openly hating anyone who's listening. It promises only air, but poisoned air. And yet it still wraps it up as a gift, as something you should say ‘thank you’ for. Which is like a lot of the bullshit that we've been seeing the past couple of years.” [1] In a track-by-track guide, Forge adds on: "A call to arms. It could be a very optimistic song about a future where we can grab people by the pussy and just fuck shit up. So it’s meant as a party track, if you like that stuff." [2]

It is widely regarded as a commentary about the state of the world in the 2020s, containing several references to phrases uttered by former U.S. President Donald Trump. Griftwood , from the same album, is about former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

“Twenties” by Ghost

by Amanda London · Published March 10, 2022 · Updated March 10, 2022

Have you ever listened to one of those types of songs where you’re saying to yourself like ‘wow, it sounds a lot like the singer is dissing the audience’? Such is the case,  as described by  cardinal ghoul Tobias Forge himself, as far as the song “Twenties” is concerned.

But this isn’t like, say the vocalist exalting himself over members of the audience like a rapper may do. Instead, as further described by Forge, he is challenging listeners to, shall we say confront the world as he perceives it.

It has been ascertained that the “Twenties” he’s referring to is the 2020s, i.e. the decade we’re currently living in. And it would appear that the vocalist is not only speaking to the present but also our immediate future.

And for the most part, the lyrics read like gloom and doom. However, Tobias has enlightened that this all could also be interpreted as “a very optimistic song about a future”. Or put differently, what would make the future optimistic, apparently under his estimation, is if people actually rose up to the challenges of the day as opposed to shrinking to them. Or as the vocalist puts forth – quite unconventionally considering the general understanding of the type of imagery commonly associated with Ghost – “you’ve got a lot of God’s work to do”.

So conclusively, using this post to delve too deeply into these lyrics – considering that they’re both ambiguously symbolic and obviously macrocosmic/societal in nature – may be akin to opening a can of worms. 

But once again going back to one of Forge’s own explanations, “Twenties” is “meant as a party track”. And the lyrics reveal that the associated “dancing” would ideologically be taking place “in the field of freedom”. So as the song progresses it does in fact read like “a call to arms”, as he put it, i.e. the future being both promising and frightening, and the path it ultimately takes being determined by the actions of the people.

Lyrics to Ghost's "Twenties"

When was “Twenties” released?

On 2 March 2022, “Twenties” became the third single issued from Ghost’s album “Impera”. The entire project was made possible by Loma Vista Records.

Other singles from this album are:

  • “Call Me Little Sunshine”
  • “Hunter’s Moon”

Who composed this song?

Ghost frontman Tobias Forge wrote this song with Salem Al Fakir and Vincent Pontare. Its producer is Klas Åhlund.

GHOST “Twenties”

New  single  and  lyric video  live now, impera out march 11 on loma vista recordings.

“Tell Them All… It Is Time”… 

“Twenties” is the latest advance offering from IMPERA, the imminent fifth album from GRAMMY-winning Swedish theatrical rock outfit GHOST, heralding its arrival March 11 via Loma Vista Recordings.

With its messianic promises of reigns of pennies and piles of moolah set to an appropriately manic musical backdrop, the unrelenting and propulsive “Twenties” stands in stark contrast to its Pre-IMPERA predecessor, the eerily hypnotic “Call Me Little Sunshine.” In fact, the apocalyptically prophetic vibe of “Twenties” —  particularly its lyrical relevance to historical events unfolding on the world stage (however incidental) — render the song utterly unique in the Ghost canon.

The release of “Twenties” is accompanied by an Apple Music New Music Daily exclusive interview with Ghost’s Tobias Forge, welcoming Apple’s Zane Lowe into the world of IMPERA. For more information, go to  https://found.ee/Ghost_ZaneLowe

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace — and also featuring the Active Rock #1 radio single “Hunter’s Moon” — IMPERA finds Ghost transported literally centuries forward from the Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018 Best Rock Album GRAMMY nominee Prequelle. The result is the most ambitious and lyrically incisive entry in the Ghost canon: Over the course of IMPERA’s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made… All in all, the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date is set against a hypnotic and darkly colorful melodic backdrop making IMPERA a listen like no other — yet unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost.

“Twenties” drops just as Ghost concludes a 26-date U.S. arena tour March 3 at the Honda Center in Anaheim CA. Co-headlined by Volbeat with support from Twin Temple, the Pre-IMPERA Tour played nightly to rapturous crowds and critical acclaim alike, including:

Clay Tatum in The Civil Dead.

The Civil Dead review – deadpan ghost comedy of wannabes trying to make it LA

Mordant satire follows a photographer who discovers that it’s not only the acting-career prospects of his needy old acquaintance that have expired

H ere is a quarterlife-crisis comedy written and performed by YouTube comics Clay Tatum and Whitmer Thomas; it is shruggingly deadpan and throwaway, but with a real satirical point and it is genuinely and unexpectedly bleak.Tatum plays a version of himself: Clay, a guy who has come to LA to make it as a photographer. He’s had work published but has real problems paying the rent and has got involved in an illegal fake sublet scam. Out of the blue, an old high-school acquaintance appears; this is Whit (Whitmer Thomas), a needling, wheedling guy who has come to LA to break into acting. Whit wants to hang out with Clay but he’s someone that Clay doesn’t especially want to befriend.

What makes it more awkward is that Whit is a ghost. He is actually dead, and only Clay can see him. He cannot walk through walls or float around, but he has the superpower of invisibility, so Clay does warily permit Whit to accompany him to a high-stakes LA poker game to let him cheat – but he has a rising panicky sense that his new ghost-non-pal wants to hang out with him for the rest of his days. Whit says he can’t remember the moment of his death and does not have a clear most-recent memory of his living existence.

Whit’s actual death is not too far from the career death or social death that so many people come to Los Angeles to endure. For his part, Clay himself keeps claiming to be a friend of superstar Andy Samberg who has apparently vaguely promised Clay work taking set photos, work that has not materialised. So the film also invokes the friendship death that former high-school contemporaries experience when they meet up again in their 20s and realise they have nothing in common – and there is also the artistic or creative death experienced by young performers in LA, creating YouTube comedy or doing one-man or one-woman shows but who feel that, like ghostly Whit, no one can hear them. It’s a mordant piece of pessimism.
