GHOST has dropped a new song titled “The Future Is A Foreign Land.”

The Swedish band announced on social media that this “newly uncovered 1969-era” track is part of the soundtrack for their debut film, Rite Here Rite Now.

According to GHOST, “The Future Is A Foreign Land” was written by the fictional character Papa Nihil, who also “authored” previous GHOST tracks “Mary On A Cross” and “Kiss The Go-Goat”. This track, however, had never been released—until now.

GHOST‘s leader Tobias Forge discussed the lyrical theme of “The Future Is A Foreign Land” with NME. He said: “The message is that there’s a great lesson lost if you look at what is going on in the world now and what took us here… If you’re lucky enough to experience this film in the cinema, you’re pretty well off. You’re one of the lucky ones and you should enjoy life, embrace it and do everything in your power to make life better for you and everyone you know. But remember the cost that it took for mankind in the past 55 years to get here and the sort of s**t that we put each other through fighting for what we believe is a better world. I’’s meant to make you feel thankful somehow that we can laugh at certain things and be at a fictional rock concert in this world.”

In response to overwhelming demand, additional theatrical dates have been added to the global launch of Rite Here Rite Now. The film will now premiere in cinemas over four days: June 20, June 21, June 22, and June 23.
