Scorpions Release their 3rd single “Seventh Sun” off their new album Rock Believer

SCORPIONS have shared their new single, “Seventh Sun”. The song is taken from the band’s 19th studio album, “Rock Believer”, which will be released on February 25.

From the very first note of “Seventh Sun”, guitarist Rudolf Schenker and his Flying V manage to spectacularly draw us into this powerful song in an almost mystical way, much in the tradition of SCORPIONS classics such as “Animal Magnetism” and “China White”.

Watch SCORPIONS Rehearse Brand New Song

SCORPIONS Rehearse New Song For Upcoming Tour; Video - BraveWords

A short video of SCORPIONS rehearsing a brand new song, apparently titled “Seventh Sun”, at their studio in Hannover, Germany can be seen below.

Drummer Mikkey Dee uploaded the clip to his Instagram, writing in a caption: “SCORPIONS– rehearsing new songs for upcomming Tour. Pretty damn heavy.”

SCORPIONS recently completed work on a new album for a tentative early 2022 release. The LP was recorded primarily at Peppermint Park Studios in Hannover, Germany and was mixed at the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany with engineer Michael Ilbert, who has earned multiple Grammy nominations for his mix work with producer Max Martin on albums by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

SCORPIONS‘ 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.

SCORPIONS originally intended to record the new album in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman, whose previous credits include SLIPKNOT and METALLICA. However, because of the pandemic, some of the initial work was done with Greg remotely, after whichSCORPIONS opted to helm the recordings themselves with the help of their engineer Hans-Martin Buff.

Singer Klaus Meine previously told Talking Metal that the goal with using Fidelman to produce the new LP was to bring “the old vibe from albums like ‘Blackout’, ‘Love At First Sting’ or even ‘Lovedrive’. We try to focus on those albums and this attitude,” he said. “If we get there, who knows — it’s so many years later. But it’s the spirit and it’s the whole vibe around this album. This time, the focus is on the harder songs.”

According to Meine, SCORPIONS‘ new LP features “no outside writers at all,” unlike 2015’s“Return To Forever”, which was largely co-written by the album’s producers, Mikael Nord Andersson and Martin Hansen.
