Members of the clergy rejoice for Ghost have released their first new original song in two years, Hunter's Moon!
Written for the soundtrack to the upcoming horror movie Halloween Kills, Hunter's Moon is a fittingly spooky example of Ghost's occult trad metal/hard-rock. Accompanied by a killer video directed by Amanda Demme, Hunter's Moon is everything that we've come to love about Ghost, turned up to thirteen.
Watch the video for Hunter's Moon below.
The track has an interesting and organic background genesis. Hunter’s Moon can be traced back to Ghost's November 16th, 2018 show at the Forum in Los Angeles. Ryan Turek, Vice President of Feature Film Development at Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, Insidious, The Purge, Us, Whiplash) would attend the sold-out show, striking up an instant rapport with Ghost frontman Tobias Forge — one that developed quickly and deeply via meetings, podcast appearances, and ultimately a visit with co-writer and director David Gordon Green on the North Carolina set of the upcoming Halloween Kills.
Three years nearly to the day since that first fateful exchange, Hunter’s Moon has been unleashed on digital streaming services. The track will play as the Halloween Kills end credits roll, and will be released January 21st, 2022 as a collectable 7-inch single by Loma Vista Recordings.
Hunter’s Moon can be streamed, purchased, and/or pre-ordered in its vinyl incarnation here. The retail version of the 7-inch will feature the special B-side Halloween Kills (Main Title), performed, produced and engineered by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies.
