Scorpions Return to Studio to Finish Tracks Started Nearly 30 Years Prior
Scorpions Return to Studio to Finish Tracks Started Nearly 30
Years Prior -
German hard rockers, Scorpions have returned to the studio with
producers Mikael "Nord" Andersson and Martin Hansen to start
work on their new album.
The Hanover outfit, who made their mark in 1972 with debut
album, 'Lonesome Crow,' are reportedly working on songs that were
originally intended for albums 'Blackout' (1982) and 'Love at First
Sting' (1984) but were never released.
According to UltimateClassicRock the
band have 12 songs finished with a further 6 to be completed before
determining the final sequence of tracks.
The band's guitarist Matthias Jabs recently told Billboard that
the tracks won't sound like they did in the early-80's:
"We're doing it the way we are recording albums today," he said.
"But the basic ideas, the riffs, the feel, the way they were
written and arranged, we try to keep as much from the old
recordings as possible. Thirty years later no one would come up
with these ideas we came up with when we were younger, so we want
to keep that spirit in there."
Scorpions are looking to release the new record at some point in
2013. However, the group insist thet will not tour the album and
expect their show on Dec. 15 in Oberhausen, Germany to be their
last, despite the recent recordings.
