Iron Maiden have announced their long-awaited new studio album 'The Book Of Souls', which will be released on September 4.
Iron Maiden have announced their new album, 'The Book Of Souls'.
The 'Run to the Hills' hitmakers had to delay the release of the LP after frontman Bruce Dickinson discovered a cancerous tumour, although now he has been given the all-clear, the rockers are preparing for the record's launch.
Bruce said: ''We're really excited about 'The Book Of Souls' 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 album - which will be released globally on September 4 - follows up their 15th studio LP 'The Final Frontier' which was released in 2010, and will be accompanied by an international tour for the band next year.
Bassist Steve Harris commented: ''We approached this album in a different way to how we've recorded previously. A lot of the songs were actually written while we were there in the studio and we rehearsed and recorded them straight away while they were still fresh, and I think that immediacy really shows in the songs, they have almost a live feel to them, I think.
''I'm very proud of 'The Book Of Souls', we all are, and we can't wait for our fans to hear it, and especially to take it out on the road next year!''
