GHOST's Lead Single From Meliora Was Chosen By Tobias Forge's Daughter
On May 31, 2015, Ghost rolled out "Cirice," the first single from its then-upcoming album Meliora. The song ended up blowing up, and even landed the band a spot on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to play live on Halloween. So who was behind the decision to make "Cirice" the first single? Well, according to Papa Emeritus in an interview with Elpais, his 8-year old daughter chose it!
"I am a father who tries to make a living to feed his family, that is my job and I could not be happier. To my 8-year-old daughter, when we were going to release Meliora, I asked her what she wanted the single to be and it was she who chose Cirice."
Clearly Emeritus' daughter has good taste in music , and should absolutely choose the first single from Ghost's new album! Whether that's later this year or early next year, obviously.
