Scorpions are reworking unfinished songs from the early ‘80s for a new album promised for next year. Guitarist Matthias Jabs tells Billboard.com the veteran German metal band has raided the vaults for “leftovers from the Blackout album [and] Love at First Sting, which some people think is our best time.” “It’s actually very good material,” he said. "We're doing it the way we are recording albums today, but the basic ideas, the riffs, the feel, the way they were written and arranged, we try to keep as much from the old recordings as possible. Thirty years later no one would come up with these ideas we came up with when we were younger, so we want to keep that spirit in there."

Last month, Scorpions delighted fans with news they were not breaking up, but they do remain firm in their decision to retire from the road at the end of this year. “We decided to stop at this point because we are still in great form and would like to be remembered as a great live band,” Jabs said. “We don't want to grow old in the spotlight.”
