Prequelle is the fourth studio album by Swedish rock band Ghost. It was released on 1 June 2018 and produced by Tom Dalgety. The album's first single, "Rats", was released ahead of the album on 13 April, and as of 28 July, had peaked at number one for seven weeks on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart. The second single, "Dance Macabre", later topped the same chart for two weeks as well
The fourth full-length album by Swedish band Ghost, Prequelle, is the first to introduce the band’s new leader, Cardinal Copia. Though Ghost has changed of ‘leader’ for every album release, this is usually simply a physical change in appearance, as Tobias Forge is always the man behind the mask; nonetheless, this time there’s someone else on the costume. The album revolves around the middle ages with themes such as death, wrath, and destruction. Contrary to all other released by Ghost, the band did not release any single artwork for Prequelle. The only other art released, apart from the album itself, was a cover designed by artist Marald van Haasteren for Revolver Magazine.

Prequelle is the fourth album and the funny titled sequel to 2015’s highlight in Ghost discography, Meliora, that once and for all saw the cult break into the mainstream. And they’ve certainly come some way since their beginnings with the ominous mysticism that surrounded their first two albums. As such, Ghost (or solely Tobias Forge) has written the songs for Prequelle accordingly. It's an album whose hits are meant to be played to the masses at incredible volumes. They're meant to be heard in arenas where you're charged exorbitant prices for beers and the line for the bathroom is never worth it.
Ghost – Prequelle deals. The repeating refrains breed familiarity, so the album is full of proper earworms beyond the choruses, adding a layer of seductive subtlety to a deliberately over-the-top album. Cultish closer Life Eternal is a mellowed-out grand finale – a moment of ‘just letting go’ that even includes a sparkly shooting star sound.
Ghost announced they would be playing arena shows in New York and Los Angeles back in April. The news came as a bit of a shock, initially. The Swedish band is quite new compared to the rock bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden who typically play in large arenas
