Ghost Share Surreal “Dance Macabre” Video

Ghost have shared the official video for “Dance Macabre.” The track comes off their most recent album, Prequelle. You can check out the Zev Deans-directed clip above.

Ghost leader Tobias Forge recently spoke to Guitar World about the unusually dancey, poppy sound of “Dance Macabre”: “I had the riff that starts the whole song, that was just a riff that got stuck in my head,” he said. “I didn’t think of it as a Ghost thing at first. Because I heard the riff in a slightly more ‘synth-y’ sort of way. But I showed it to some songwriting pals of mine and they were like, ‘That’s a Ghost song!’ Oh, okay. I didn’t hear it that way at first. But it then it was, ‘Let’s make a Ghost song out of it…’ ”
