Scorpions Re-recording Their Classics for ‘Comeblack’ Album
Don't call it a comeback -- the Scorpions have been here for years. Actually, they've been around for more than four decades, and the German rockers plan to look back at that time on their forthcoming 'Comeblack' album, which will feature newly recorded versions of classic Scorpions hits and favorites.
The album is due Nov. 4 on CD and double vinyl. No track listing has been revealed, although an
audio sample of the re-recorded version of the band's 1984 ballad 'Still Loving You' featuring French 2009 'Pop Idol' winner Amandiner Bourgeois has been posted online and currently is streaming below. The track is expected to be included on the French release of the 'Comeblack' album; it's not known if it will make it on the U.S. version.
Meanwhile, as the Scorpions gear up for the next leg of their final world tour, the band will cap off their career with a previously announced 3-D concert DVD, a documentary spanning their 40-year career, and a covers album focusing on songs from the ’60s.
The band's latest album, 'Sting in the Tail,' dropped March 23 and sold more than 18,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at No. 23 on the Billboard 200 tally. That was their highest chart debut here in more than 20 years.
