Scorpions recorded two songs for a new compilation with ballads that they will release. The information came from Sirius XM which did an interview with Klaus Meine on Tuesday September 12th. There’s a best-of-ballads album coming out with Sony Music later this year, in the fall,” said  Klaus Meine, “and they wanted us to come up with a couple of bonus tracks, and we went in the studio and everybody came up with great ideas. And before we came here [to do this interview], we just finished a recording session and listened to the first mixes and stuff, and it sounds pretty good. It’s gonna be a ‘best of ballads,’ but with those new tracks. And it’s gonna be a cool project. Sony Music approached us and said, ‘C’mon, guys. You have so many powerful songs. And we wanna put it together in some kind of compilation you guys never did before.’ So that’s coming out, I guess, in November.”Meine added that while the SCORPIONS are known in the U.S.A. mostly for their harder-edged material, like “Rock You Like A Hurricane”, “in other parts of the world, SCORPIONS are very famous for the ballads, like ‘Still Loving You’ in France. And in Asia, they love the ballads, and in Russia, ‘Wind Of Change’ and all those songs are very powerful — equally as powerful as ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’ here,” he said. “So we talked about [doing] this. In different parts of the world, people like different types of music. So we can offer [a compilation that includes all the best of the softer songs].”
