Ghost Covers Shakespears Sister's “Stay” featuring Patrick Wilson from “Insidious: The Red Door” Soundtrack
Swedish rock band Ghost and American actor Patrick Wilson teamed up to release a cover of British alt-rock duo Shakespears Sister's “Stay” on July 7, 2023.
The song is featured on American supernatural horror film “Insidious: The Red Door” soundtrack.
The original version of the song was released by Shakespears Sister as the second single from their sophomore album “Hormonally Yours” in 1992.
The song won British Video of the Year at Brit Awards in 1993.
The film “Insidious: The Red Door” is a direct sequel to the 2013 film “Insidious: Chapter 2”, and was directed by Patrick Wilson, who made his directorial debut in the film.
The film stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, Hiam Abbass, Sinclair Daniel, and Andrew Astor.
Patrick Wilson said of the collaboration with Ghost, “Ghost, for me, is one of the most unique rock bands out there. Tobias’ sense of melody is only matched by his storytelling. The blistering imagery of him and the band is unlike any other. The balance of dark lyrics with soaring - and dare I say... angelic - melodies, make listening to them a different experience than any other band out there.”
He continued, “So clearly, when I wanted a band that embodied the spirit of Insidious lore, I knew where to look first. ‘Stay’ is such a hauntingly beautiful tune to end my film with, because the dark lyrics juxtaposed against the sweeping melody are a great bookend to my film. Singing on it, alongside Tobias, was an absolute thrill. I wanted the tune to feel like it was Josh Lambert (my character) singing, and then being tempted by the devil (the lipstick demon) in this case, sung by the brilliant Tobias Forge.”
He added, “Tobias’ tone is a sharp contrast to mine, and his new arrangement of the song is faithful yet fresh. It was an honour to be featured on the tune, and I can’t thank Tobias and the Ghost crew, especially Tim Bickford and Kristen Mulderig, for making this happen.”
The film was released on July 7, 2023.
