SCORPIONS RELEASE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE, “PEACEMAKER,” NEW ALBUM “ROCK BELIEVER” OUT FEBRUARY 25TH
Scorpions have released the official music video for their new single, Peacemaker (see below), which will be on their forthcoming new album, Rock Believer, out February 25th, 2022
Singer Klaus Meine commented, “The first thing that came to my mind was the hook line ‘Peacemaker, peacemaker / Bury the undertaker.’ I was just playing around with those words. At a time when so many people have died and are still dying of COVID, from devastating wars and other senseless crimes, it makes you feel that the undertaker must be working overtime. In a peaceful world after the pandemic, it will be time for the peacemaker to rule… that’s an image that really appeals to me.”
“The album was written and recorded in the Scorpions DNA with core [guitarist Rudolph] Schenker/Meine compositions,” said Meine. “We recorded the album as a band live in one room, like we did in the ’80s.”
The new album will mark their first release since 2017’s Born To Touch Your Feelings – Best Of Rock Ballads, which was an anthology of new and classic material.
