Ahead of the release of new album Impera next week, Ghost have shared one of their most unusual offerings yet: Twenties.

Following previous singles Call Me Little Sunshine and Hunter's Moon, Twenties has a vibe of “Slayer meets some sort of Missy Elliott thing”, frontman Tobias Forge recently told Kerrang!, and is both a “pep-talk” and also “a paradox”.

“That song has super-aggressive lyrics, it’s very hostile,” he explained. “It’s still meant as a pep-talk, but it’s basically demeaning and openly hating anyone who's listening. It promises only air, but poisoned air. And yet it still wraps it up as a gift, as something you should say ‘thank you’ for. Which is like a lot of the bullshit that we've been seeing the past couple of years.”

Impera is due out on March 11 via Loma Vista Recordings.
