As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazined, original Accept vocalist (and long-time user of camouflage clothes) Udo Dirkschneider has teamed up with the concert band of the German Armed Forces, a 60 piece orchestra under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Christoph Scheibling.

U.D.O. and the Musikkorps der Bundeswehr will release an album entitled “We Are One” on July 17th through AFM Records /Soulfood Music. The album contains 15 new songs developed and arranged by U.D.O. together with Christoph Scheibling. Former Accept musicians Stefan Kaufmann and Peter Baltes have been part of the songwriting in addition to the German Armed Forces’ composers Guido Rennert and Alexander Reuber.

„We Are One“ is about the different challenges we are currently facing. “We all live on this planet. No matter who we are or what we do, we all just have this one planet“, Udo Dirkschneider explains about the message behind the songs. “There is no planet B. When I see the pictures of all the plastic in our oceans and when I hear about the next climate catastrophe in the news, I really start wondering how respectless and irresponsible we sometimes are. It´s not just about us, it´s also about all the others and last but not least about our children!“
