Scorpions announced last week that their new single, “Rock Believer,” will be out on Thursday (January 13).
The first snippet of the song went live on Friday (January 7) via TikTok. The song is the title track from the legendary band’s 19th studio album, which will arrive on February 25.
Scorpions released the official music video for Rock Believer‘s first single, “Peacemaker,” a couple of months ago. The track features music courtesy of guitarist Rudolf Schenker and bassist Pawel Maciwoda and lyrics by singer Klaus Meine.
Speaking about the Rock Believer album title, Schenker said, “Look, we are around the world since 50 years or more. And when somebody can say he’s a rock believer, then this is us. And of course, we meet our rock believers in front of us, our audience.
“So many people said rock is dead. It’s not dead,” he continued. “It’s always coming back – sometimes, okay, more stronger [or] less strong – but in the end, it’s great to play around the world in over 80 countries we’ve played so far, and all rock believers. It was always great to share the music with them together and be in connection with them. I mean, that’s so amazing and so fantastic, that we are very happy to come out with a new album. And yeah, let’s see what’s happening.”
