SCORPIONS Frontman: 'We Want To Record A Great New Album In 2007'

SCORPIONS frontman Klaus Meine has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"I would like to thank you all very much for all your best wishes and birthday greetings. It really is a great feeling to know that there is such a bond with so many fans around the world. Our 2006 summer tour has just begun with a wonderful gig in our hometown Hannover and continues, as usual, to the four corners of the globe. We want to record a great new album in 2007 and will be working on the songs during the many concerts this year. I hope we will see you all somewhere 'on the road.'"

SCORPIONS have reportedly tapped songwriter/producer Desmond Child — who has worked with such high-profile pop/rock artists as AEROSMITH, BON JOVI, ALICE COOPER, KISS, RICKY MARTIN, CHER, MICHAEL BOLTON and BONNIE TYLER — to produce their next studio album, which they expect to release before the end of 2007. Child, who recently worked with Michael Beinhorn, Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman as co-producer on MEAT LOAF's "Bat Out of Hell III: The Last at Bat" CD, has also been mentioned as MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil's likely collaborator on Neil's new solo album, which the vocalist was previously said to be planning to record this summer.

SCORPIONS' latest album, "Unbreakable", was released in the U.S. in June 2004 through Sanctuary Records. The CD was recorded at Peppermint Park Studio in Hannover, Germany and was mixed at Wisseloord studios in Hilversum, Holland.
