MSG's Immortal Is Out and In Search Of The Peace Of Mind (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO) is Released: MSG's new album titled "Immortal" has been released today. To commemorate the release of "Immortal", a new music video for the single 'In Search Of The Peace Of Mind' has been released.

Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/5gy69onDzXQ

'In Search Of The Peace Of Mind' had to be my 50th anniversary celebration song. It means so much to me, because it was my very first musical composition I wrote at the age of 15. And it was also the first song I had ever put on a record, also at the age of 15.

[...] this song from the original "Lonesome Crow" Scorpion's album, the very first album the Scorpions had ever recorded, has a solo on it that that was so perfect I would never change a note in 1000 years. I have no idea where it came from, alongside the other solos on "Lonesome Crow", where you can hear that I am an amateur, young and developing as a kid. But this lead break came from somewhere else. I have no idea how it happened." - Michael Schenkerrecording proccess and working with Michael Schenker.
