AUDIO: Scorpions premiere unreleased 1982 Blackout demo

The Scorpions are premiering “Running For The Plane”, an unreleased demo from sessions for the group’s 1982 album, “Blackout.”

The track is featured on the upcoming reissue of the album as part of the band’s 50th Anniversary Deluxe Editions series, which will see the German rockers revisit their past with expanded reissues of eight of their classic albums.

On November 6, the Scorpions will reissue “Taken By Force” (1977), “Tokyo Tapes” (1978), “Lovedrive” (1979), “Animal Magnetism” (1980), “Blackout” (1982), “Love At First Sting” (1984) and “Savage Amusement” (1988) – and 1985’s “World Wide Live.”

In addition to dozens of unheard studio tracks and live recordings, all CD releases are equipped with extended booklets featuring rare photos and, single covers, backstage passes and additional liner notes, while five of the eight albums include a DVD with live concert footage, TV performances and interviews from the period.

The remastered LP formats are released on 180-gram vinyl in a sleeve replicating the first pressing. They also come with an audio CD, featuring the original track listing and the same bonus audio as the CD formats. A limited and numbered Deluxe Box Set will contain all remastered vinyl discs.

The Scorpions recently launched the North American leg of their 50th Anniversary Tour in support of their latest album, “Return To Forever.”
