Ghost is the second extended play by American recording artist Sky Ferreira. It was released on October 16, 2012 by Capitol Records preceding Ferreira's debut album Night Time, My Time. The EP features collaborations with Jon Brion, Greg Kurstin, Ariel Rechtshaid, and Dev Hynes. Ghost showcases a more indie-oriented direction, incorporating new wave as well as her characteristic electropop sound.
After Ferreira's original debut album was scrapped due to creative differences between her and Capitol, she was stuck without direction. One day, Shirley Manson sent "Red Lips" over to Ferreira to record, which kick-started the album and pushed it into a new direction, which kept with her preferred style. With the finishing touches being put to the album in 2012, Ferreira announced an EP titled Ghost to be released on October 2, 2012 with at least two tracks from the album, "Red Lips" and "Lost in My Bedroom", on it. The EP was delayed until October 16, preceded by the video for the strictly EP track, "Everything Is Embarrassing".
The EP received generally positive reviews, with praise for Ferreira for providing such a diverse range of tracks, while still keeping elements of her previous electropop material ("Lost in My Bedroom" and "Everything Is Embarrassing"). Some reviewers commented that it was hard to get a sense of Ferreira herself in the midst of such diversity, with this being something that should be worked upon with the album.
