German hard rock legends Scorpions has just dropped a new high-octane single titled “Peacemaker” to preview their upcoming 19th album, Rock Believer. The LP arrives on February 25. They began working on the record in 2019 and throughout the pandemic, they continued recording in between lockdowns.
“The first thing that came to my mind was the hook line,” vocalist Klaus Meine said in a statement. “‘Peacemaker, peacemaker / Bury the undertaker.’ I was just playing around with those words. At a time when so many people have died and are still dying of COVID, from devastating wars and other senseless crimes, it makes you feel that the undertaker must be working overtime.”
“In a peaceful world after the pandemic,” he continued, “it will be time for the peacemaker to rule … that’s an image that really appeals to me.”
Asked about the song’s message, Meine explained: “It’s about peace!”
“I wasn’t out to write a political song, but I was hooked on the line ‘Peacemaker, peacemaker bury the undertaker’,” he added. ” … As musicians, travelling around the world for so many years, whether we play in the Middle East or any other place where war isn’t too far away, you really feel how much the music means.”
