Ghost has released a new song called The Future Is A Foreign Land.

The Swedish band took to social media to reveal the “newly uncovered 1969-era” track, which is featured on the soundtrack to the band’s debut film, Rite Here Rite Now.

According to GhostThe Future Is A Foreign Land was penned by the fictional character Papa Nihil, who also “wrote” previously released songs Mary On A Cross and Kiss The Go-Goat but the track had never been made available — until now.

While its wicked twangy guitar figures and portentous lyrics of an impending 1984 render the song instantly recognizable as an artifact of the era, The Future Is A Foreign Land is suffused with presciently modern signatures of the contemporary Ghost sound. Ending with an optimistic nod to 2024, The Future Is A Foreign Land was revealed to the children of the world during the end credits of Rite Here Rite Now‘s world premiere, and is the sole previously unreleased studio track to be included on the movie’s original soundtrack.

The original motion picture soundtrack to Rite Here Rite Now will be released on July 26th through Loma Vista Recordings. A fitting 18-song complement to Ghost‘s debut feature film, the band’s first-ever original soundtrack will be available on all formats (digital, CD, 2xLP). Pre-orders are live now, and include the soundtrack’s live version of Absolution, captured at that now-legendary two-night stand at the Forum, as an instant-grat track available on YouTube.

  1. Saw a Ghost cover/tribute band at a bar in Florida 5 years ago, completely by accident. Had never heard of Ghost before, but the cover band was amazing. Setlist was very heavy……which made me look into their songs. I liked about 8 of their songs……..but anything from the last few years has been pure ‘silly goose’ style.
