Elijah Blake Returns with Haunting Ballad “Ghostbuster,” First Single from Upcoming Album

Elijah Blake

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Elijah Blake ushers in a new era with “Ghostbuster,” the lead single from his forthcoming album. Released via MNRK Music Group, the song finds Blake in introspective territory.

“Ghostbuster” is a slow-burning ballad drenched in melancholy. Blake’s soulful vocals navigate a soundscape that blends classic R&B elements with contemporary production flourishes. Lyrically, the track explores the lingering effects of a past love. Lines like “Can’t get you out of my head / Out of my brain / Chasing after love that I know has been dead / You’re just a ghost of my past / That keeps coming back” paint a vivid picture of heartbreak and unfulfilled desire.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, Blake explains, “With ‘Ghostbuster,’ I wanted to create a journey that transcends boundaries, allowing listeners to connect with a hauntingly beautiful experience. It’s a fusion of my musical roots with a modern twist, and I’m excited to share this artistic expression with the world.”

“Ghostbuster” serves as the opening salvo for Blake’s upcoming album, due for release in June. The single follows a prolific period for the artist. In 2023, he released the well-received EP Chateau Lane featuring collaborations with Jordin Sparks, RMR, and Finn Matthews. 2021 saw the arrival of The Neon Eon, a critically acclaimed 10-track project boasting guest appearances from Keyshia Cole, Tamar Braxton, and D Smoke.

With “Ghostbuster,” Elijah Blake lays the groundwork for what promises to be a deeply personal and musically captivating new chapter.
