Iron Maiden album due in September

Iron Maiden will release their new album ‘The Book of Souls’ on 4th September through Parlophone Records. The full-length was recorded in Paris with producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley in late 2014, but the release was delayed so frontman Bruce Dickinson could recuperate from a cancerous tumour found at the back of his tongue.

“We’re really excited about ‘The Book Of Souls’,” says Bruce, “and had a fantastic time creating it. We started working on the album in late summer 2014 and recorded it at Guillame Tell Studios in Paris, where we’d done the ‘Brave New World’ album back in 2000 so the studio holds special memories for all of us.

“We were delighted to discover the same magical vibe is still alive and very much kicking there! So we immediately felt at home and the ideas just started flowing. By the time we’d finished we all agreed that each track was such an integral part of the whole body of work that if it needed to be a double album, then double it’s going to be!”

The full track listing is as follows:

Disc 1
1. If Eternity Should Fail
2. Speed Of Light
3. The Great Unknown
4. The Red And The Black
5. When The River Runs Deep
6. The Book Of Souls

Disc 2
7. Death Or Glory
8. Shadows Of The Valley
9. Tears Of A Clown
10. The Man Of Sorrows
11. Empire Of The Clouds

It will be available as a 2CD deluxe hardbound book limited edition, 2CD standard edition, triple heavyweight black vinyl, high res audio (24-bit mastered for iTunes and non-mastered for iTunes), and standard res audio. The band expect to start touring again early next year.
