German hard rock veterans Scorpions will release their final studio album, “Sting In The Tail”, on March 19th. The CD was recorded at a studio in Hanover, Germany with Swedish producers Mikael “Nord” Andersson and Martin Hansen.
The album will include a guest appearance of Tarja in the song “The Good Die Young” that has been also chosen for the first single from the album and will be available starting February 26th.
After the release of the album and a three-year mammoth tour, which will take the Scorpions across five continents, the band will end its career. The group broke the news on its web site last month.
“It is such an honor to be invited to take part in the Scorpions last album. I received a phone call from Klaus that was very kind to extend the band’s wishes to have me performing one of their songs. I was not aware it was going to be their last recordings until they announce it, so I have mixed feeling of happiness and bit of sadness too when I got the news. I can only thank them for the invitation and for letting me be a part of their last effort as a band. I am sure they will keep this particular album in their hearts the same way the fans and I will do”
