AFM Records‘ website indicates:
“Metal legend U.D.O. will release their new album “We Are One” on July 17th, which was written in collaboration with the official Concert Band of the German Armed Forces (Musikkorps der Bundeswehr) under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Christoph Scheibling and is a wholly unique worldwide musical project.
The album contains 15 new songs that have been developed and arranged by U.D.O. together with Christoph Scheibling. The two former Accept musicians Stefan Kaufmann and Peter Baltes have been part of the songwriting too – as well as the German Armed Forces composers Guido Rennert and Alexander Reuber.
‘We Are One‘ is one of the most elaborate concept albums the market has ever seen, not to be compared with the `rock band meets orchestra‘ collaborations that already exist in the music world.
The hard rocking sound of U.D.O. has not only been intensified by a 60 piece orchestra, but contains some unique arrangements that underline how characteristic yet versatile U.D.O. is.
This project surprises the listener in every aspect, and is a project with a clear statement: ‘We Are One‘ is a critical reflection of a world in which we all leave our mark, and in which we all have to show responsibility.
Udo Dirkschneider about the message behind the songs: “We all live on this planet. No matter who we are or what we do, we all just have this one planet.”
