Scorpions’ ‘Born to Touch Your Feelings’ Ballad Compilation Details Revealed, Will Include New Songs
It's been over 50 years since the Scorpions formed in Germany and since debuting with Lonesome Crow in 1972, they've gone on to release 18 studio albums in total and dozens of compilations and it's time to add another comp to that list. Ready your lighters because Born to Touch Your Feelings - Best of Rock Ballads is set for a Nov. 24 release through Sony.
The list of Scorpions hits is staggering as they've been on of rock's most prolific outfits and have remained in top form onstage as well. This collection is dedicated strictly to the band's softer side and will even contain some new offerings by way of reimagined classics (a new 2017 acoustic version of "Send Me and Angel") as well as fresh originals ("Melrose Avenue" and "Always Be With You").
Spanning 17 tracks, Born to Touch Your Feelings will also include recent remasters as well as selections from Comeblack, which saw the band re-record some of their most iconic tracks, so this isn't merely just stringing together cuts you've worn out the grooves on from your original vinyl copies of the studio records. Check out the complete track listing and artwork, featuring two masquerading women, below.
The Scorps recently embarked on a North American headlining tour with Megadeth as support. We hit their first show at Madison Square Garden since 1984 and photos from the night can be seen here. Unfortunately, the tour was cut short as singer Klaus Meine came down with a severe laryngitis and obeyed a doctor's orders to cease singing immediately or risk permanent vocal damage.
