GHOST have released a new version of their song “Spillways” featuring a guest appearance by DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott which can be heard below
“Spillways” comes off GHOST‘s fifth studio album, “Impera“, which arrived in March 2022.
GHOST mainman Tobias Forge previously mentioned to Metal Hammer magazine that he thought DEF LEPPARD was “great” and added that “going into [‘Impera’], I thought I would see if I could do it a little more like DEF LEPPARD did it.”
Forge worked on “Impera” with producer Klas Åhlund and Swedish co-writers Salem Al Fakir and Vincent Pontare, whose credits include Madonna and Lady Gaga.
Forge told Metal Hammer magazine about “Spillways“: “This is an elegy for the darkness that most people have inside. When you have a dam, spillways are the run-offs so the dam won’t overflow. That darkness inside us needs to find its way out.”
