Scorpions Klause There are plans for a new Scorpions album, featuring leftovers from the early 1980s.
Klaus Meine: “We started that over a year ago… It will be material that was never finished; songs with pure Scorpions DNA from a very exciting time. Once we close the book on the crazy touring schedule that’s something we’ll pick up again.”
Three years after announcing the Scorpions had decided to wind down their career; the band has changed their minds.
Meine explained the volte-face as follows: “As the emotion built, it [not retiring] became a gradual decision. It’s one thing to say, ‘This is going to be the end of the Scorpions’ and another to do it. Our Sting In The Tail album [2010] was such a success that a whole new generation of fans joined the party. It was amazing. And you know that with all the best parties it’s sometimes hard to find the door?”
