The Scorpions Reveal New Album Details

(Classic Rock) The Scorpions will kick off their 50th anniversary celebrations in 2015 with the release of Return To Forever on February 23. The follow-up to 2011's covers album, Comeblack, marks the German outfit's first studio project in three years, during which time the group performed a farewell tour and made a decision to continue recording and performing because they simply had "too much fun" to call it quits.

The set comes on the heels of 2014's MTV Unplugged - Scorpions Live In Athens, a package compiled from three concerts in Athens, Greece at the city's Lycabettus Theatre last year.

Return To Forever features a variety of vintage Scorpions songs that were never completed back in the day. Guitarist Matthias Jabs explains: "We found tracks mainly from the Blackout and Love At First Sting days - which people consider our most creative and best time. They sound good but were never finished. They don't have lyrics or vocals, so we have to do everything new." Read more here.
