Scream, the debut English album by German band Tokio Hotel, contains English versions of songs from two of their previous albums: Schrei and Zimmer 483. Eight of the twelve songs come from Zimmer 483 while the remaining four originated from Schrei. The name Scream is the English translation of the name of the first Tokio Hotel album, Schrei. In German-speaking countries, the album was released[by whom?] as Room 483 - the English translation of their second album's name ("Zimmer 483"). The first single released from the album was simply called "Monsoon" - not "Through the Monsoon" (the literal translation of the original, "Durch den Monsun").
