The legendary Scorpions put out their 19th full-length album, Rock Believer, at the end of this month, and in advance of that long-awaited release comes the third single, "Seventh Sun."

Reminiscent of hardened classics such as "Animal Magnetism," "China White" and "The Zoo," this latest Rock Believer preview is a mystical, slow-burning track with clever lyrical poetry. It slips between an empty backbeat with a spotlight on the 73-year-old Klaus Meine as forceful rhythms, prickly guitar melodies and languid solos work their way in and out of the song's orbit.

Listen to the song below.

"Seventh Sun" follows the hard-charging "Peacemaker" and the stomping "Rock Believer" and the new record will also bring another eight songs with a Feb. 25 release date through Spinefarm. Pre-order your copy here and view the album art and track listing further down the page.

Scorpions, "Seventh Sun" Lyrics (via AZ Lyrics)

A child is born, a man has died
A mother sings a lullaby
Word belongs to the young ones
Take your dreams and find the seventh sun

A black bird sings a melody
As innocent as it can be
Your inner freedom's shining on
Take your love and find the seventh sun

Your innermost freedom's shining on
To lead the way to the seventh sun

Sun is throwing shadows
And burning if you come too close
Even if your song is old
A million years
Time traveler, here and now
The ones who are gone are still around
Your heart and soul will be one
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun

Your inner freedom's shining on
To lead the way to the seventh sun

A child is born, a man has died
A time-old joy for time to cry
The voice of love's 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 innermost freedom's shining on
To lead the way to the seventh sun

Sun is throwing shadows
And burning if you come too close
Even if your song is old
A million years
Time traveler, here and now
The ones who are gone are still around
Your heart and soul will be one
In the seventh sun

Your innermost freedom's shining on
To lead the way to the seventh sun

Sun is throwing shadows
And burning if you come too close
Even if your song is old
A million years
Time traveler, here and now
The ones who are gone are still around
Your heart and soul will be one
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
Yeah, in the seventh sun
Oh yeah, in the seventh sun
In the seventh sun
