The legendary German band The Scorpions released a new song called “Sign Of Hope”. According to the statement made by the group the song is to give some hope for the fans during this difficult time the whole world is facing.
“We are working on lot’s of Hard’n Heavy Rockers for our new album these days … but because of the dramatic Covid-19 pandemic, we want to give you a little Sign of Hope that came straight from the heart in troubled times … stay healthy and safe … we love you … Scorpions”
In an recent interview, the vocalist Klaus Meine talked about the band’s upcoming new album:
“We were supposed to start working in the studio [two weeks ago] and all of us are working in their own studios, but we’re in touch. And we keep going and we try to make the best out of this isolated situation. The last week of March, we were supposed to start working here [in Germany] before we wanted to go out together with the whole band here in the studio in Hannover.”
“Our producer from America wanted to come over here — Greg Fidelman — and then we had to change the whole plan. And it turned out we ended up with everybody doing his own thing, working on songs and working on stuff at his own studio. So, for me, it was good. With the support of [our recording engineer] Hans-Martin Buff, he [took] me through all the different stages to record myself — not only to be a writer and a singer but also become an engineer, recording myself.”
“And it was a nice challenge —and it still is. Every other day, I come up with things and go, ‘Hey, c’mon, Hans-Martin, you’ve gotta show me…’ It’s easy to communicate this way and get things done. That’s, so far, the good part of this in this very difficult time.”
“So I think we’re very privileged that we can be at home and that we can spend time in the studio and do what we do anyway. But I’m sure, and I know there will be a point where it’s about time for the whole band to join together and put things on the next level.”
