Ghost has announced a new album called Impera.

The fifth studio effort from the Swedish metallers will arrive March 11. It includes the previously released single “Hunter’s Moon,” as well as the just-dropped new track “Call Me Little Sunshine,” which is available now for digital download.

“Over the course of Impera‘s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made,” a press release declares, adding that the record covers “the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date.”

Impera is the follow-up to 2018’s Grammy-nominated Prequelle, which spawned the singles “Rats,” “Dance Macabre” and “Faith.”

Ghost will celebrate the new album announcement with a performance on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, airing at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.

Here’s the Impera track list:

“Call Me Little Sunshine”
“Hunter’s Moon”
“Watcher in the Sky”
“Darkness at the Heart of My Love”
“Grift Wood”
“Bite of Passage”
“Respite on the Spital Fields”
