Scorpions guitarist Matthias Jabs has confirmed that the band will be finalizing the songwriting process for their new studio album.

Speaking with The Metal Bar, the German hard rockers are staying busy by preparing for their next upcoming disc while touring, which will mark their first release since the 2017 release Born To Touch Your Feelings - Best of Rock Balladsan anthology of their career-spanning rock power ballads. 

As transcribed by Blabbermouth, Jabs described the difficulty of creating songs while being on the road. "You get the inspiration, but to actually put it down, that's a different story, when you travel every day." 

He noted that the band has "about 10 songs" but intends to write, rehearse, and record some more as the tour wraps up in New Zealand and Asia.

Said Jabs, "So we will be back in early March." He added that they will be working with producer Greg Fidelman, whose portfolio boasts the likes of Metallica and Slipknot and has "already [come] to visit [their] studio in Hannover, Germany."

With "the plan is to record until the first of July," Scorpion will then spend a month in Las Vegas for their residency and allot time for "the final touch-ups or mix."
