The Scorpions singer Klaus Meine explained in a video released on the band’s Youtube channel (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) the meaning of the band’s first single “Peacemaker” from the upcoming album “Rock Believer” that will be released next February 25.
“At [a time] when so many people are dying because of a worldwide pandemic, of devastating wars and many other mindless crimes, it seems like the undertaker is working overtime. In a challenging world of our future, the peacemaker should rule the planet and we should support him in order to make the world a better place. It’s up to all of us, isn’t it?”
The Scorpions announced the release of their 19th studio album, “Rock Believer” next February and 2022 tour dates with special guest Mammoth WVH (The band of Eddie Van Halen‘s son) on some dates. During the pandemic the band retreated to the studio in their German hometown in Hanover and started working on new songs.
