Grammy Award-winning rock band Ghost
today released "Dance Macabre", the second track off the forthcoming fourth sacred psalm Prequelle. Ghost

Prequelle follows Ghost's third studio album, Meliora, and its accompanying EP Popestar, which elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of the greatest rock bands on earth and resulted in a Grammy® Award for 'Best Metal Performance'. Meliora debuted at No. 1 at Independent Retail, No. 2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. The band made their network television debut performing the album's lead single "Cirice" on CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard's Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums chart and produced an Active Rock chart topper with "Square Hammer".
