Coming off the release of their latest single, Writing On The Wall, metal legends Iron Maiden have announced that they are releasing their brand new studio album, “Senjutsu”, on September 3rd. The new double album, the band’s 17th studio effort, was recorded in Paris in 2019 and was produced by Kevin Shirley and founding member and bassist Steve Harris.

Frontman Bruce Dickinson says: “We’re all really excited about this album. We recorded it back in early 2019 during a break in the Legacy tour so we could maximize our touring yet still have a long set up period before release to prepare great album art and something special as a video. Of course the pandemic delayed things more – so much for the best laid plans – or should that be ‘strategies’! The songs are very varied, and some of them are quite long. There’s also one or two songs which sound pretty different to our usual style, and I think Maiden fans will be surprised – in a good way, I hope! ”
