Grammy-nominated Ghost release Spillways single with Joe Elliott

The band Ghost, who have been Grammy-nominated for Best Metal Performance for their single Call Me Little Sunshine, have released the single Spillways, which features Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott. Joe appears in the webisode Chapter 15: Meanwhile In Dublin, drinking Guinness in an Irish bar before performing the track karaoke-style and being sucked into the Ghost world.

“Impera was my favourite rock album of 2022,” Joe said. “I found out along the way that Tobias is a bit of a fan of DL, so I guess it was inevitable we’d both find out about each other. Once we’d been introduced to the idea of working together, it just snowballed organically, and I’m thrilled that I got to sing on what is my favourite song from that album.”

The mutual admiration has been well documented. “Going into this record [Impera], I thought I would see if I could do it a little more like Def Leppard did it,” Tobias Forge said. Joe Elliott told Metal Hammer, “I listened to it all, and I thought it was absolutely stunning. It’s like a whole new genre of music.”

Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic Limited Edition Purple Vinyl 7″, the double-A-side single featuring Kiss The Go Goat and Mary on A Cross, will be in stores on 3 March 2023.
