Iron Maiden Preview New Album The Book Of Souls
Plans to release the record were delayed so that vocalist Bruce Dickinson - who was recently given the all-clear from a tumour - would have time to recuperate and assist in the preparations for the album's launch.
"We're really excited about The Book Of Souls and had a fantastic time creating it," says Dickinson. "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 its going to be!"
"The Book Of Souls" will be available in 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 (16 bit/ 44.1 kHz). Check out the preview clip here.
