Scorpios Share New Mystical Slow-Burning Song “Seventh Sun”

The legendary Scorpions have released their 19th full album, believer in rockat the end of this month, and before this long-awaited release, comes the third single, “Seventh Sun”.

Reminiscent of hardened classics such as “Animal Magnetism”, “China White” and “The Zoo”, the latter believer in rock preview is a mystical, slow-burning piece with clever lyrical poetry. It glides between an empty backbeat with a spotlight on 73-year-old Klaus Meine as powerful beats, stinging guitar melodies and languid solos work their way in and out of the song’s orbit.

Listen to the song below.

“Seventh Sun” follows “Peacemaker” and “Rock Believer” and the new disc will also bring eight more songs with a February 25 release date via Spinefarm. Pre-order your copy here and check out the album art and track listing further down the page.

Scorpions, “Seventh Sun” lyrics (via AZ Lyrics)

A child is born, a man is dead
A mother sings a lullaby
The voice belongs to the young
Take your dreams and find the seventh sun

A black bird sings a melody
As innocent as possible
Your inner freedom shines
Take your love and find the seventh sun

Your deepest freedom shines
To open the way to the seventh sun

The sun casts shadows
And burning if you get too close
Even if your song is old
a million years
Time traveler, here and now
Those who left are still there
Your heart and your soul will be one
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun

Your inner freedom shines
To open the way to the seventh sun

A child is born, a man is dead
Age-old joy for the time to mourn
The voice of love is the only one
Your soul will always shine in the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun

Your deepest freedom shines
To open the way to the seventh sun

The sun casts shadows
And burning if you get too close
Even if your song is old
a million years
Time traveler, here and now
Those who left are still there
Your heart and your soul will be one
In the seventh sun

Your deepest freedom shines
To open the way to the seventh sun

The sun casts shadows
And burning if you get too close
Even if your song is old
a million years
Time traveler, here and now
Those who left are still there
Your heart and your soul will be one
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
Yeah, to the seventh sun
Oh yeah, to the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
