It recently came to light that Ghost may be releasing a deluxe version of their 2018 album Prequelle and a 7" with two new tracks titled "Kiss The Go-Goat" and "Mary On The Cross" on September 13. Now it seems like those rumors are starting to come true.
Ghost has announced a deluxe box set version of Prequelle titled Prequelle Exalted due out September 27. One of the items included in the box set is a "bonus 7″ with two Ghost rarities," which we're assuming are the two aforementioned songs. Though they could also be the covers of Pet Shop Boys' "It's A Sin" and Leonard Cohen's "Avalanche" that came with some original editions of the album.
What's in the box is as follows:
- Prequelle Limited Edition Transparent Orange with Black Smoke Colored Vinyl
- 60-page arena tour photo book, hardbound and wrapped in black gator skin
- Exclusive die-cut Prequelle artwork with a 12-page booklet featuring brand-new, mind-blowing illustrations
- Four 12″ X 12″ live photo prints
- Bonus 7″ with two Ghost rarities
- Ghost 7″ vinyl adapter
Here's what the band had to say about the release.
"For the arena tour hardbound photo book and the exquisite, suitable-for-framing 12″ X 12″ prints, Ryan Chang photographed Ghost on tour over the course of a year, documenting the band’s live performances throughout Europe, the UK, Canada, and the United States, including the Special Guest spots on Metallica European ‘WorldWired‘ Stadium tour this summer.
The 12-page booklet of new prints was created by Ghost‘s longtime visual collaborator Zbigniew M. Bielak, offering 10 stunning illustrations, each one a visual representation of the 10 songs on Prequelle."
Grab your copy of Prequelle Exalted at Ghost's website for $90. No word on if there will be a knocked down version of this release like they have done for both Infestissumam and Meliora, but we'll see. While you're at it, maybe go grab one of those kickass Papa Emeritus III action figures that Super7 is doing.
