Ghost issue Cirice promo

Ghost have released a video for their track Cirice, taken from their third album.

The band release Meliora on August 21 via Loma Vista Recordings. The secretive collective previously said the record will feature a ‘new’ frontman – Papa Emeritus III, the three-month-younger brother of outgoing leader Papa Emeritus II, who appeared on 2013’s Infestissumam.

The video for Cirice is set at a school talent show, with children playing the roles of Ghost. Cirice is portrayed by the actress and model Masha Malinina, who says: “I was honoured to be in the music video as Cirice. It was so fun and it turned out great.”
